Yes, this is true... I think the Bagdad Clinic is starting to get sick of us. I just wish they would offer a "family discount". We have been there SIX times in the last week and a half and now all of us have been seen... Here are the results of those visits, since we saw three different doctors and we all know that different doctors have different opinions.... ( I am putting this in order of when we were seen.
Christa: Diagnosis: Strep? Given a "Z-pack" and slowly feeling better. Seen by Doctor A
Will: Diagnosis: An ear infection and two pink eyes. Given ammoxicillian and is slowly getting better, but still struggles with his health and boogies... Also seen by Doctor A
Morgan: Diagnosis: Tonsilitis, given Ammoxicillian. He is really struggling at getting better and has his ups and downs... Is the Ammoxicillian really working?? His throat is very sore and he has horrible headaches still and feels crummy.... Seen By Doctor B
Lund: Diagnosis: Tonsilitis, given Ammoxicillin. He is still out of school because he has two pink eyes that just won't go away and every morning he wakes up with his eyes "sealed shut"..Also seen by Doctor B on the same day
Sarah: Diagnosis: Get over it, your ear just must be hurting..... given pain reducing ear drops. She is really struggling to get better and four days later her ears still hurt her and her throat is covered in white dots and her eyes are pretty red.... Also seen by Doctor B, same day
Cassidy: Diagnosis: You just have a cold, gargle salt water..... She was the only one given a strep test; tested negative...Syptoms are the same as above..Seen by doctor C. She is still struggling with headaches and not feeling wonderful, but is back at school.... I also took a look at her sore throat tonight after dinner and sure enough, white pockets or dots as well....
Dillemma: I know that "white pockets" in your throat are not good and I think Sarah and Cassidy really need to get back into the doctors again.
Frustration: They were the only ones not given antibiotics, coinscidensce?????
Another frustration: Will they give me a "Family discount" or let me have the next visit free if they were possibly "wrong" the first time....
Frustration: Driving to Prescott to get a "second opinion" would cost 50.00 in gas, worth it????
Frustration: I have been grounded in my house with sick kids and being sick for two weeks, somebody let me out......... He! He!! I am about ready to jump on the nearest Haul truck and see where it takes me...... (probably just back to the Mine, so I guess that is pointless)....
Thanks for lending me your ear, our your eyes rather, while I complain about my silly situation.
SITUATION TO BE CONTINUED PENDING TOMORROWS DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS...
