beth’s fever: when it rains, it snows

Never a dull moment for the Wilsons.

Last night Beth came down with a pretty strong fever, so we packed up and headed off to Jackson Clinic Convenient Care to get her checked out.

We opened the door and:

Two hours later:

  • Convenient Care closed early due to ‘inclement weather’
  • two phone calls to Dr. Ball at the Jackson Clinic,
  • two trips to Walgreens (one for Tylenol, one for the prescription Dr. Ball called in)
  • one power outage that shut down Walgreens’ computers and registers,
  • a quick run to the Redbox to get a movie

Diagnosis: Beth has developed an infection from feeding Abbey, causing her fever, and some less-than-enjoyable irritation for my sweet wife.

Fortunately, the medicine broke the fever and Beth is feeling better.

. . . . . . .

The day was not lost to frustration, however, for we celebrated Grammie’s birthday and really enjoyed the beautiful snow.

Details in a post, forthcoming, but here is a photo of Beth and Abbey to tide you over:

    Happy Birthday Lesa!!!

    Hope it was wonderful.

    And thanks for being my stand-in. I must admit I’m getting antsy to see my granddaughter.

    Beth Anne!! Are you kidding me?? You win the rockinest Mom award for being a trooper, feeding your baby through fever when she was only a few weeks old, and just being an all-around awesome girl. I’m praying for no more excitements like this…love you!
