Follow up appointment

I took Drew to see Dr. P today. She agrees that he looks so much better! But, he does have what appears to be an ear infection (either coming or going, she can't tell) on the right side now. So we are going to continue antibiotics for that. She is also concerned that he won't do well with another virus right after this one so we are to avoid contact with groups of kids. Boo. That is going to be hard for Drew and hard for me. No gymboree, no library time, no mom connection, no church nursery for a month! But we can do outside things, so I guess we'll be having a lot of park days and zoo trips in the next month. That will put us into the end of April. His cath is May 1 and they won't do it if he is sick within a week of the appointment, so it will actually be more like six weeks of isolation. Boo again.

I would go batty! BATTY!
I was housebound for a four days when Dylan was sick and the day we FINALLY got to leave I practically skipped into town to go to work. TO WORK!!!
Crazy.

How about take a trip to see Heather and John, or maybe come see Grandma and Grandpa. We would make you and Drew forget all about the isolation! I'll try to think of fun things for you to do.

Love, Mom

Bummer about the isolation. Hoping it goes fast. And hoping it's worth it when you get your cath results.

you know there's always a pink-haired sprite willing to come over and hang out too! i don't know about "getting out and doing things" though, i'm not really familiar with that concept...
