So, yesterday, we ended up at the pharmacy twice within an hour. The first time was because Emily had an infection at one of her incision sites and the doctor prescribed an oral antibiotic until we can get in to see him on Monday. After getting off the phone with the doctor's office, I headed out to our Target pharmacy (where, btw, they know me by name because I'm in there at least 2-3x per week!) and picked up some Keflex. I joked with the pharmacist about how I'd only been in once so far this week and then went home. I had barely stepped through the door when my phone rang- it was Emily's doctor's nurse, and she wanted to change the meds that we had been prescribed from Keflex to Bactrim. Apparently, the first med was prescribed by a tech at the office and not by the doctor, who wanted Emily on something different.
By this time, it was about 6pm, and we were headed out to pick Josh up from soccer practice and go have dinner at a restaurant. We stopped at Target once again, and the pharmacist laughed when he saw me coming! He quickly filled my second order and then joked that I still had about an hour-and-a-half before they closed and he'd probably see me again soon, to which I quickly replied why would you say such a thing?!?!
We headed out to dinner, and while we were eating, we noticed that Noah wasn't looking too great. He was complaining that his throat hurt and when I checked for a fever, he was pretty warm. We made the decision to head straight over to Urgent Care (after a quick stop at Best Buy- I'll tell you why after I finish with THIS story), and after a quick test it was confirmed- Noah had strep! Oh boy was I sooooooo tempted to go back over and let the pharmacist have it for jinxing me, but by then it was 9pm and the pharmacy at Target was closed- lucky for him ;-) Now, if that's not irony for you, then I sure don't know what is!!!!!!!
So, this morning, after all of yesterday's medical drama, we loaded up all 7 kids into 2 cars and headed over to our pediatrician's office for the dreaded seasonal flu shot. The line wound around and around, and it ended up being almost a 3hr process from start to finish to get all the kids vaccinated, but we felt so fortunate that even Noah was able to have the vaccine, despite the strep throat (that means we don't have to do this again!). I'll be getting mine at my OB visit next week, and Zack will get one at work!
Now, before my next story, here's some cute pictures of some pretty cute kids that just happen to be mine!
Isn't this funny of Jacob?! He looks so darn serious!
Ok, so now onto the next story! I got something in the mail yesterday.....
I think I'm finally on my way.....
Well, at least this makes me look like I know what I'm doing now, right.......
Really, don't I look like a pro now?!?!
Come on people, humor me here!!
And please don't balk at the big belly- I still can't believe it's NOT twins!!!
But back to the new lens- my wonderful, loving, ever-so-encouraging, sweet, kind, generous, amazing, did I mention FABULOUS? parents bought me my first REAL lens! It's a Canon EG-S17-55mm, f/2.8 IS USM, and it's too cool! I also received a sunshade for this baby!! Can I get a woot, woot?!
And that leads me to the reason I hit Best Buy last night before taking my strep-ridden child to the doctor! I absolutely had to go get a new camera bag that would fit this ginormous new lens that I'm now sporting- I certainly didn't want to leave it sitting out, unprotected in my crazy household!!
So today, I was super excited when I went to the mailbox and found that my new business cards had arrived! I didn't waste any time distributing them around the neighborhood- I can't wait to get going now!!!
