The wife took the king to the doctor today… Before you read any further…. Everything is fine. This is not a serious blog post. It’s more a “day in the life” blog post.
Anyway, he’s had a cough for almost 3 weeks. It wasn’t bothering him and he had no other symptoms so we left it alone.
We have a history of going to see Kyle’s pediatrician too early into an illness before it’s really shown up yet. Or we go and it’s nothing and we wasted a $25 copay. His pediatrician always says “Use your gut. How’s he looking? How’s he acting?”
And he’s looking & acting fine. Fine for Kyle. 🙂 And he’s had enough Drs the past few months with the hernia and the seizures. So we left it alone.
Then yesterday he just looked kinda sick. The cough didn’t sound any worse…but his lips were all chapped, and he looked a little glassy eyed. So the wife pulled him out of school for a 10am dr appointment.
At 10:47am I texted her to get the report. And we traded texts back & forth throughout the afternoon…
Here is our exchange.
That’s it. I got home by 5pm. And he seemed fine. A bit more hyper than usual, and an old stim seems to be back….playing with saliva…but I’m gonna chalk that up to being sick & being extra “juicy”…and pray that when this infection is over, the saliva play will disappear too…
Kind of a strange blog post, but people seem to really like these kinda “slice of life” posts and y’all seem to like our text exchanges so I thought I’d give you a bunch…
Over and out…
