Update on the Sickies

I tried giving the antibiotics (Pen VK) that K.C.'s pediatrician wrote for him but he just couldn't take it. It made him throw up each time he took it. I called the doctor's answering service and asked them to have the doctor call me back and she did about 20 minutes later. She said I should take him to Urgent Care but I begged her to send something out in PILL FORM because it wasn't the penicillin making him sick, it was the texture, I was sure of it. K.C. will take any pill with no problem, even two pills at once. Even Flax he takes and those pills are huge. So she agreed to send him out pills, thank God, I didn't want to take him to Urgent Care, he would have been miserable. College Boy watched K.C. so that I could go get his prescription, K.C. was asleep when I got home. He's taking the pills very well but isn't better yet. I hate that he has to miss even one day of school, he needs every bit of school that he can get.
Big Brother is doing well, he just asked me if we could go for a walk today. It's been in the upper 80's here but cooling off at night.
College Boy has been a real blessing, the boys just love him and he has helped me so much. Thank you College Boy.

Get well soon! Charlie is just like that with medicine---does better with pills and capsules; liquids get coughed up.

Wow, I couldn't imagine Griffin taking any kind of medicine in pill form unless I can sneak it into ice cream, he won't take meds in liquid form either. I hope that the pills help K.C. and that he is all better soon. Sending great big hugs to all you guys.
