It's not for the faint of heart.

Welcome to my slightly silly, often odd, and mostly messy life.

Poor Lady Bug

Lady bug went into the Dr. on Thursday for a sore throat. It's been an on again-off again problem for nearly two months and I need a referral to an Ear/Nose/Throat doc.

Well we didn't realize they would want to give LB all the 11 year old injections so that her immunizations are up to date. Then a strep test, then a blood draw to check for mono...

Poor kid. What was supposed to be a quick referral request turned into four hours at the doctor, five needles, one panic attack, and that horrible giant q-tip in the back of her throat.

At least I bought her lunch afterwards and she got lots of sympathy from grandma...


  1. Wow, that stuff must really be getting around I've had the same thing for the past few months. Poor thing, I sure hope she gets better SOON.

  2. Aw, poor thing. I'm FINALLY over my sore throat (and it was AWFUL) but it took a week and I still have the lingering cough. There's some nastiness going around. Hope she gets better soon!

  3. Ugh! That's tough!

    I hope all of that poking around makes her sore throat go away!

  4. the problem is that no matter what you do, sore throat or flu catchs up with you one time or another, its not easy to deal with bth these things, dont worry, have some ginger tea and raw onions placed by the bedside and all will be well
