Round 2 of Antibiotics

While having my mommy-intuition proven correct is a great boost to the ego, I still hate the fact that Tree Faerie still has an ear infection.  So, Round 2 of the antibiotics has ensued, and this time it’s in the form of a shot (or 3).  She had her first this morning, and I’ll take her again tomorrow morning and Friday morning.  We’re skipping Thursday because Tree Faerie’s regular doctor is out on Thursdays, and she wants to be the one to re-check Tree Faerie’s ears.  I’m all for that, especially since I prefer that she be the one to check Tree Faerie every time I go in.  I’m the type of person who likes dealing with only one doctor because then I know there are no varying opinions.  I get the same person with the same training, the same background, and the same views on treatment instead of picking from a grab-bag of doctors.


To answer the question that many have been asking, we discussed tubes this morning.  If Tree Faerie continues this pattern of getting ear infections, we will discuss tubes at a later date.  At this point, I’m just going to leave it at that.  I’m not in any rush to have it done, and usually the infection responds to antibiotics.  Hopefully the issue will resolve on its own.


In other news, I’m rather amazed at how un-lonely Hank (the betta fish that sits on my desk) makes me feel.  I really enjoy having him share my cubicle with me.  If a fish can be happy, I’d have to say he’s a very happy fish.  Who knew that all I needed was a little company?


As far as the Blogger problems I’m having, I’m sorry if you guys are having trouble reading my posts.  It looks fine in IE6 (I know, I know – gag!), but for some reason it’s all screwy in Firefox.  The old template wasn’t right in either browser, though.  I hate it that not only am I not able to comment from work, but now some of you can’t read it, either!  I tried other layouts, but all of them are wonky.  Hopefully all will be well soon.  I’ve got my fingers crossed, but I’m not holding my breath.

I keep a blogger private from the public that I play with templates, that way I know if they work or not w/o screwing up my blogging. If it makes you feel better I'm on round four of antibiotics..long story..but It's getting old.

Ugh. Ear infections suck. I didn't have many as a kid, but I had three in the span of a year back in 2001-2002 and it was HORRIBLE!

And, don't worry about blogger. It's a little difficult to read, but I can persevere and figure it out.

A fish at your desk? How fun. I wish I would have thought of that when I was working!
