We surrender





It has been almost a week since we both developed colds. Also I have managed to get not one but two pink eyes. It has been unpleasant but not overwhelming. After this period of time we were just tired of it. So today, it was decided we would call our doctor direct. Well, actually I texted him about our problems. He called in some prescriptions to the local pharmacy.

We now have a little cheat sheet to figure out when we have to take all this stuff. It is great to have a doctor that I can call directly and discuss our issues without dealing with his office staff. He is available to us 24/7 by phone, if needed. In fact, this is only the second time we have needed to call him on the road in the two years we have been with him. But it is nice to know he is there.

We will now wait and see if any of this will really speed up the recovery process. He mentioned that those grandkids carry some powerful germs:)

We have mostly been enjoying our waterfront site when the sun shines. We have yet to see our first alligator to “not feed or aggravate”. We have found a good fish market and have looked at the beach. Basically, we are just resting and waiting for the bugs to DIE!

Gotta love technology. It may be more advanced than modern medicine though!
Hope you're feeling better soon.

We spent 2 weeks there last year and never did see an alligator. I think they just post those signs so people have something to take a picture of and blog about :)

Hope those drugs you've got do the trick and you're both feeling better very soon. In the meantime, put up your feet and just rest!

If you have to be sick, a waterfront site is good therapy. ;)
I hope you both get well soon!

Sorry you're still both not feeling any better. At least you have a nice view that you can look out at. Lots of liquid and rest. Hope you will be good to go soon.

We just found ourselves a new local doctor, rather than traveling to Tucson all the time. However, none of our doctors has ever given us a direct phone line! We did have one we could email about things and she'd respond quickly. But those were the days we were in Kaiser -- in Oregon. California Kaiser would NEVER do that!

Mike and Terri said...

Enjoy the view, rest up, and feel better soon!

An alligator showing up will perk you up real quick...
If you get the chance, eat Alligator - it's tasty.
Hope your both better real soon.
I'd like to find a doc like yours!

Some how I missed this post of yours. So sorry you were under the weather. :(

Sherry said...

A doctor you can call and actuallly talk to? How did you manage that? I have to leave a message and his nurse calls me back and around and around we go. I want your doctor. Hope his prescriptions were just what you needed.
