Medicine Anyone?

How many bottles of Amoxicillin do you have in your refrigerator?

We have 6!
Plus all this in the cupboard too:

As you can guess it's not been a fun two weeks at our house. In 10 days time we have had 8 visits to the doctor and 7 to the pharmacy. Most of the trips to the pharmacy took an hour or more. Gotta love military pharmacies! :)
Derek is the only one in the family who hasn't been sick but since he escorted most of us to the doctor he has actually "seen" more doctors than any of us. (Ha! Ha!) Anyway, Andrew, Brian, and I all had strep throat, Kylie had double ear infections, Philip had bronchitis, and Timothy had an upper respiratory infection. Andrew also had an allergic reaction to his Amoxicillin and was covered in a rash from head to toe. Poor kid-- just another thing to add to his already long list of allergens. So, we have had lots of fevers, sore throats, coughing and some itching at our house. We have gone through two whole bottles of children's Tylenol. Since we all started our medicine everyone is on the mend and appears to be getting better. Now we are just hoping that Derek won't ever have his turn. Here's to hoping!!

Nice! I feel like you and I had a bunch of the same problems. Chloe was covered in a rash too. thanks good I could use the cortizone on her, she told me that it helped her feel so much better.
Hope you get over all the sickness and that Derek doesn't get it and if he does it is super light.
Rob was pretty lucky, he only got a stuffy nose for a couple of days.
Love you!

Well, at least the DR gave you something. I love the picture :)
Our whole family has had the flu (for over a week now). The Dr. won't give ya a thing for a virus. Even if you are only 1 and can't take cough medicine. So we have also had lots of fevers, runny noses, coughs and very little sleep followed by tons of tissues, Motrin, Tylenol and Tylenol Cold, Infant's Tylenol, Cough drops, NyQuil, Sudafed, Theraflu, and Mucinex. (I used up all my sick time and have had to use some vacation time too) And during all this C got 2 new teeth!
