Doctors, Doctors and More Doctors

I'm thinking I'm going to get tired of doctors this week and next. Lyssa has been sick with a fever since Friday evening. She seemed to be getting better then got another fever last night and woke up during the night crying and said her ear hurt. I decided at that point that I should take her to the doctor today, even though every time I took her temperature or gave her medicine she would say, "I don't want to go to the doctor." She wasn't very happy about going today until I assured her she wouldn't be getting a shot. Here's a picture of her sitting on the table waiting for the doctor to come in. She saw the camera and gave me that cheesy smile.
Molly did a good job of entertaining Dylan during the appointment. She usually likes to stay out in the waiting room and play with the toys but decided to come back with me and brought along a very noisy book from the waiting room and showed it to Dylan. He stayed happy in his seat the whole time. Which was nice.
Anyway, the doctor came in and looked in Lyssa's ears and sure enough, she has an infection in both ears. He wrote out a prescription for her (which she says is yummy so I shouldn't have any problem getting her to take it) and commented that the last time her chart shows her taking antibiotics was in February of 2006. So she's gone almost 3 years without having to have antibiotics. Which is funny since she's just 3-1/2.

I realize that I started this post saying I'm going to be tired of doctors. That's because Dylan has three appointments coming up. He gets his next synagis shot on Friday then next week has his 6 month well baby check-up (on Wednesday) and his next echo (on Friday). Not to mention taking the dog to the vet yesterday. Ah, well.

My goodness that sure is going to be a lot of trips to the doctors office. I do hope that Lyssa feels better real soon too. Hopefully no one else will get sick (but you would probably want to cross your fingers for that, right?).
