At Home with Sick Kid

March 9th, 2009 at 10:11 am

My son woke up this morning feeling really bad. His throat is killing him. So I took him to doctor and got him some more antibiotics. I say more because this is probably the third time he has been for his throat. Problem is that he never finishes the antibiotic and so it keeps recurring. But he has other things this time as well. Just hope I don't catch it!

I put a roast in the crock pot this morning. Should be good for dinner.

TV is still in the middle of the living room. I had a brilliant idea while at the doctor. I am going to call one of those places that pick up stuff. Don't know why I hadn't thought of it sooner!

Right now finances look ok. Rain is forecast for the rest of week, so my DH might end up not working. That would be bad for our vacation! Starting to get excited about it. Trying to figure out things to do.

    I don't mean to sound rude, but shouldn't you be in charge of ensuring your son finishes the antibiotics?

    Ordinarily,I would agree with you. But his is 16 year old who is trying to assert his independence. He got upset when i asked him about is medication. So I quit asking him. I have decided to let him try to take care of himself.

    You should with-hold judgement until you know what the facts are.

    I hope you get your son to read up on how he is endangering others by refusing to finish his antibiotics.

    Personally I find it rather difficult to remember medications as well, not a sign of youth necessarily, just a bit to absentminded. But I also know how important it is to finish, so I might be a day late or so, but I do finish them.

    I have stressed it to him...that he will be resistant to the antibiotic which could lead to serious problems. I have had my sister(a nurse) tell him in graphic details the dangers of not finishing. He just thinks he knows better than any of us. I too also make sure that I finish all antibiotics.

    Sis just writes down the times they should take the medicines on a sheet of paper, then has them set the alarm on their cellphones....maybe that'll work, you know, it's not Mom reminding him!

    I would assume this is an older tv that is pre-black box. If you just want to get rid of it, try listing it with freecycle as a tv that could be used for gaming or watching videos. My dh and I did that once and someone came and picked ours up. They were thrilled because they didn't need a great tv, just something for their kid to play video games on. It keeps it out of the landfill.

    Lib, I have posted it on freecycle, using that exact premise. It is 20 years old...No one has contacted me. It has been in my living room for 4 weeks now! Just want it gone!

    Please try to keep the TV out of the landfill!! I think there are places that would recycle them...for a small fee.
