We saw the doctor today and got 5, yes 5, prescriptions for Parker. One liquid, one pill that's about the size of a pea seed that has to be cut into thirds, (really? no, but it get's worse), a small oval pill that has to be cut in half, a packet (or sachet) that has to be divided into fourths, (seriously? can you make this any easier?), and another packet.
We stopped at the 7-Eleven on our after dinner walk around GZ. I got some yogurt, but didn't realize it wasn't like the yogurt at home, but instead was very runny. I kept trying to hide these jaggedy pill pieces in the yogurt, but everytime, Parker would swallow the yogurt and spit out the pills. After several attempts, we finally got those down. Then we used the lid off the sugar bowl to 'mix' up all the packets of stuff with the yogurt. He swigged that down with the straw she gave me for the yogurt. And, sadly I saved the best for last and gave him the liquid medicine which was brown and tasted like a mixture of licorice and tar. It did have a familiar taste though I'm not sure why. Anyway, we have to do this for seven days. Yippee! I guess I'll have my pharmacy skills honed by the time I get home!
We're headed to bed so we can Skype with my sister and mom tomorrow morning. We're still trying to figure out why the card reader won't download my pictures to the comptuer. I see a new card reader in our future!
Happy Thanksgiving Friends!
