keep the kids away....

After only 3 days on my new pediatrics rotation, I got sick. It started yesterday morning with a half sore throat. (As in the right half is sore, while the left half seems to be ok. Strange, I know.) Thinking I would be fine once I got moving, I went to work anyway. For a while, I felt ok, but after lunch I started getting that achy feverish feeling that only comes along when you have things like the flu.

Apparently, in spite of all the vaccines I have received for every possible communicable disease, my immune system clearly wasn't prepared.....for the big, scary threat that sick 2-3 year olds pose.

Today I'm exceedingly thankful to God that he has provided me with a huge sam's-size bottle of ibuprofen. I'd be even more miserable without that wonderful medicine. Even though I'm not one to take lots of medicine, I have been downing those little salmon-colored pills around the clock.

God bless modern medicine.

So sorry! Yep, those pint sized ones can be pretty threatening...

Yup, and today the roles are reversed. I am playing the doctor, and Aubs gets all the chocolate milk!
