Waiting For The Truancy Letter To Arrive.

Thankfully, I'm only half kidding.

It has officially been a month since T or M have been in school a full week. Some of this was school vacation days, snow/cold days and last week due to sickness.

They both missed school again today. Actually, I sent them to school and shortly after they got on the bus, we found out that T's strep test from Friday had come back positive over the weekend. It then dawned on me that M, who had strep throat confirmed last Wednesday, was still complaining about her throat and not feeling quite right. So rather than infect the rest of the school, I picked them both up just as attendance was being taken.

I promptly called the clinic to find out if maybe, just maybe, they'd just call H in a prescription considering he has been living with the two infected children. But due to some yada yada yada restrictions, no, this isn't possible.

After picking T's antibiotics up, we were off to pick up my dad (who had already been exposed to our strep throat infestations yesterday at H's birthday party) to take him to get some dental work done.

T and M were elated that they were home sick yet not home in bed. While my dad was getting his dental work done we went to the coffee shop nearby so the kids could finish their homework and relax a few minutes. It was busy. Busier than busy. Not an open table in sight.

But when T announced, "No, today isn't a school vacation day. We're just sick," we pretty much cleared the coffee shop.

It was about now that we found out that the pediatrician's office decided to indeed change M's prescription since she was still having symptoms five days later.

We finished our homework, picked up and dropped off dad (after a very quick lunch) and headed to the clinic to have H checked out. Naturally, all three fell asleep within a mile of my dad's house.

As I checked H in and paid the copay I realized that in the last seven days, each of our children have been seen TWICE! Yes, a couple of these were well-child checks, but six times in seven days is a lot! I asked the ladies at the desk if they have a frequent visitor club where maybe after the 10th visit, they'll buy you lunch, but the ladies didn't seem to find the humor in it. At least I got a good chuckle though.

H's quick strep came back negative. So to the Target pharmacy to pick up just M's new prescription and as we walked up to the counter, the pharmacist starting laughing as he remembered me (and my attitude) from the morning. I told him he'll probably be seeing me tomorrow too.

I rearranged my week so that H and I will be home tomorrow just in case. I'm not usually a betting woman, but my guess is we'll be getting a call tomorrow that H has strep too. Any wagers?

And you thought you'd be getting an update on H's birthday party.


Maybe tomorrow.
