Meanwhile, Krissy's eye was getting worse and I know that I was going to have to take her back in to the doctor's office. Wednesday morning I call the school to get Krissy's make up work because I know she wasn't going to be back to school that week. HA!!! Who knew that you HAVE to miss 3 days before they will let you pick up homework! I tried to explain to them over the phone that she wasn't going to be at school because she still has pink eye. They said nope she has to be absent for 3 days before they will get it for her. Needless to say as I hung up the phone I was slightly cussing the school. Anyways, I take her to her appointment and the first thing Dr. R says to her when he sees her is her eye isn't getting better and she needs meds. Duh!!! So he writes her a prescription and gives her a note to be excused from work and school for the rest of the week. He then starts to leave the room when I thank him for looking at her eye, but that wasn't the reason for our appointment today, her wrist is the reason! He looks at her wrist and x-rays it and says that they wasn't any fractures (again Duh!!) and he couldn't see anything wrong with her wrist....even though when he would press on it she would nearly jump off of the table in pain. Again, I am frustrated but thankful we at least got some meds for her eye to get better.
I take her doctor's note up to the school showing that she was going to be absent more than 3 days so I could get her homework! And they still gave me grief over getting it for her!! It was not till Friday (almost a week later!) before I got her make up work and then it still wasn't all of it. When I got home from getting Krissy's homework I was greeted at the door with hubby saying we had a problem. Krissy now had white spots all of her throat! Ugghhh!!! Back to the doctor's because I thought it looked like Strep throat. We are in our little room when the doctor walks in and looks at Krissy and says her eye looks a lot better. I said yes it was but we were there because she has white spots on her throat! He looked at it and the Strep test came back negative but she definitely had some sort of infection going on so he wanted to due a throat culture and see what it said. So we got more prescriptions and headed home and I thought that was the end of doctor visits. LOL....I was wrong!!!
Friday evening when hubby got home from work he sat down in the recliner when "something" in his back popped really loud. By bedtime he could hardly even walk. He didn't get any sleep that night so Saturday morning we were back at the doctors. They are open on Saturdays but our regular doctor wasn't there so we had to see another doctor. After the doctor poked, prodded, and took x-rays we were delivered with the news that hubby has a herniated disk, bone spurs, and the disk is deteriorating. Lovely. The next step is to have a MRI done to pinpoint exactly which disk(s) are affected. However, he did warn us that Mike may have to have shots directly into the spine to reduce pain and swelling but until he can have the MRI done Mike has to take medicine to try to bring the swelling down and major pain pills to help with the pain. Actually this diagnosis doesn't really surprise either one of us too much. Hubby has been hit by 4 cars and struck by lightening so something had to give eventually.
So, you can see why this week I haven't been able to get any stitching done! I am hoping next week isn't quite so busy with Dr. appointments.
