Spent the entire morning at the doctor's office and pharmacy getting meds to take care of the angel girl. Found out she has "cold variant asthma". The prescribed "bubble gum" medicine, steroids and an inhaler as well as gave us a handful of samples of really really good decongestant. Em is pretty worked up over the steroids because all she ever heard about steroids was that a bunch of athletes got in trouble over them. It has taken some talking to help her understand that steroids, when used properly and for the correct reason, are not bad. We are also dealing with the fact that she can't swallow pills. If anyone has any suggestions for how to help her learn, by all means, please share!
The blessing I am counting today is for my big comfy chair and how it helps me prop up this nasty looking foot that is still throbbing off and on.
