Urgent Care adventures

So, if you follow me on Instagram, you know that we were at Urgent Care with Emmeline last night. She had had a low grade temp all day and complaining that her ear hurt. Since I was at work with the car, Jason was stuck at home with her all day and couldn't take her to the dr. We desperately need a second vehicle, but that's a whole other post in itself.

As soon as I got home, we packed her up and headed over to UC. The one we go to is actually an extension of Children's Mercy Hospital and it is really nice. Emmeline was thrilled to be out of the house and ran around the place like she hadn't been sick a day in her life. Of course.
Checking out the HIPPA disclosure
We got back to the exam room and were seen by the dr. and she immediately said ear infection after looking in Em's ears. Never mind the fact that she just got over one three weeks ago. She wanted to go ahead and check her for strep to rule that out as well. Little Missy did not like having her throat swabbed, however she did get a popsicle to make up for it.

Strep test was negative so we got the prescription for her ears and headed out. Stopped at the pharmacy to get the scrip filled and then hit up Chipotle for dinner. I got the salad and managed to spill the dressing all over the floor when we got home. I'm pretty awesome like that.

Girlfriend went right to bed when we got home since it was already like 9:00 and I inhaled my salad. No workout since it was so late and I was exhausted, but I have another 3 mile run scheduled for tonight. I am just trying to get through the day today so I can enjoy my 4 day weekend. I'm so excited I can't even tell you. We've got all the girls this weekend so I need to come up with something fun to do. I'm thinking that maybe we'll hit up Costco and enjoy all the free samples.

Anyone else have some great plans for the weekend?


  1. I don't think she agrees with the HIPPAA paperwork? ;)
    Glad that she is on medicine Now. Last day of work for you mama! You can do it!!!

  2. Ear infections are no bueno. Andrew ended up with tubes, best thing EVER!!!

    Costco samples? UM YES PLEASE!!! You are really trying to get me to move :-)

  3. Funny coincidence! Pete and I were just at the urgent care on Tuesday! Nothing was wrong with him (as far as they could tell) and he did NOT get a popsicle, boo. :)

    Wow. I sounded way too excited about your trip to the urgent care. No really--I'm glad Emmeline has the meds she needs!

    Also, I LOVE your red coat.

  4. Mmmmmm......Chipolte! Love them; there's a rumor that they're coming to the city I work in and I may just break the budget going there for lunch;-) Ear infections suck...much too prominent with the littles!

  5. Poor little baby...I hope gets feeling better soon. I hate when the kids are sick. We went through all that right before Christmas. Do you love Costco? I was thinking about a membership there or Sam's Club..

  6. I hope she is feeling way better.
    I love your coat as well another post said ;)
