Hailey, my grand daughter (pictured above in the darker pink dress) arrived at my apartment this morning at 7:15 am. Her mother dropped her off as this is my son's weekend with his daughter and he was working. This saved him a 20 mile trip to pick her up.
She has been ill for two weeks and I was hoping she was better. She sure looked cute in her little black lacy skirt and turquoise top. I wish I would have thought to snap a picture but I was thinking more of my various medical tests which I had to get to by 9 am.
She didn't know when she came that she would be tagging along with her Nana this morning.
She sat and waited in the waiting room while I had the EKG, the urine specimen test and the blood draw. Everything went well and I should hear back sometime next week about the results. Maybe they will be better than my last ones were.
Afterwards we stopped at Burger King because I wanted to treat myself and her to a breakfast. For me...a warm cinnabon and for her some pancakes, sausage and hash browns. I ate all my cinnabon and could have eaten another, but she stalled out on her first pancake saying she didn't feel well. I asked her where it hurt and she said her stomach. She had seen a doctor previously and they thought it was acid re flux ..then when she didn't get better they found out she had a bacteria infection which I now learned was strep throat. She messed up on her dosage and had just finished taking the last pills this morning.
All afternoon I could tell she wasn't feeling well. She simply laid around and watched Netflix. Finally my son got off work and came and I told him to do something...not to let this go by. I almost insisted that he take her to the doctor. He wanted to wait and see if she was better and maybe go to the emergency room if necessary. I told him that wasn't a good idea....surely there would be a much larger co-pay...than an office visit and why wait. So he called the doctor and was told to bring her right away.
I just heard from him by text and she still has the strep throat. So I have been busy spraying lysol....taking a hot shower with dial soap and praying that I don't get it! Of course I said a prayer for Hailey too...
Then I went down to get my mail and visited with some people in the lobby....now I am starving and need to fix something for a late dinner. Hope you all had a nice day.
