So i went

I took both my son and I to get checked out last night. I had hoped that I could get an appointment with our family doctor, but he is off until April (I am assuming his cancer relapsed). I had to wait until my husband was home from the Italian club meeting, so someone would be with the girls. We headed out just about 9pm, even though the estimated wait time was 2 hours. I could have waited until morning, but his cough is worse at night so I had hoped that the doctor would hear it. No such luck. The little dude fell asleep after an hour(he only napped for 5 minutes yesterday). And when we finally saw the doctor he didn't want to wake him up. But he said his chest sounded clear but he did say his ears were red. It was just about 11pm when we got home. He didn't even wake up when I put him in bed. He did wake up during the night, but slept fairly decent. So he is on antibiotics and I have eye drops for my pink eye. Hopefully we will recover quickly.

I am not a particular fan of this doctor, but we got what we needed.

@Morethanamom I know some doctors need to go back to school, or get some manners.

Well I hope with the medicine you all will recover quickly. I'm just finally getting over mine after having it for 2 weeks.

Oh, I remember when my favorite doctor had cancer, that was when I finally had to look for a new one. I'm glad your son is doing better, hope you both are well soon.

I hope that both of you improve soon. I'm surprised that you were able to see someone that late at night, or did you go to the Emergency Room?

It is a 24 hour urgent care center. It used to be an emergency room, but we no longer have a fully operational hospital in town. Now if my son has been more serious (trouble breathing) the closest hospital with a pediatric ward is 45 minutes away.
