Jr’s trip to the Dr again

Jr and I spent two hours at the Dr’s today. He woke up this morning with a 100.0 degree temp. Poor guy missed another day of school. Anyways, I love this Dr we saw. He was really bothered that Jr has now run a high temp like this three times in the past month. It got to 103.1 earlier today! He was also very pissed that the Urgent Care Dr prescribed him a cough med, one because it’s suggested not to give them to kids under six and two because it was a really hard core cough med that he said could have possibly killed him. (Fucking scary) Boy am I glad I didn’t fill it! He ran a cbc test, a urine test and got a chest x-ray. He said he ran the urine because depending on what the cbc test showed it could be a uti because of the high temp. That way we wouldn’t have to come back for more tests. The x-ray did show some lines in his lungs but not bad enough to be pneumonia (at least not yet) but his bronchial tubes are all clogged up. So he has bronchitis. He still wants to wait on the blood test results and see if those tell us anything else. Oh and he is really constipated. I also like this Dr cause he is all for natural treatment. He told us to put one drop of olive oil in his ears at night because his ears were so clogged with wax he couldn’t see anything. He even let me look in there and can I just say yuck! As for the constipation I am supposed to load him up on fruit, especially berries or anything with seeds. He said throw it all, whole kiwi, apples with core and all and made smoothies. The kids love their smoothies so that shouldn’t be a problem.
The only thing that sucks about him missing school is today they were going to introduce him to his new teacher and have the kids help move their things over to the new class. And the Dr said he can’t go back to school until Wednesday and he would be starting in his new class tomorrow so he’s missing out on getting prepared for this big change 🙁 I this doesn’t make things harder on him.
