I find it quite fitting to introduce the last two, the caboose, the finale of our family tonight, since the last many hours have been all about them. You see, when I returned home from the weekend they had a little cough that soon turned into a bigger cough, and tonight a hacking-can-hardly-stop type of cough. After answering all the triage nurse's questions over the phone we decided that since Mr. Marvelous is going out of town tomorrow morning on an overnight trip for work, we should probably have them seen. So, off to the Urgent Care on the most frigidly cold night of the year. My sis-in-law gratiously offered to meet me there and help out. Oh, I love that girl!
Here are the results....
Meet Norah Kae-
She has some wheezing, no temp, and clear ears. Yea! Guess she just wanted to come along for the ride. We need to watch her cough and pay attention to any temps.
Meet Hazel Renae-
She had more wheezing, a slight temp, and the start of an ear infection in one ear. Ohhh..little honey! So, they gave her a neb treatment, prescribed some meds for her ear, and sent us home with a neb machine and a prescription.
Despite the long night, a missed supper (that I was really looking forward to), frozen hands, and little to none time with the hubs, I did get quality cuddle time with our caboose.
