You should be...this is my new glamorous life:
parvovirus. The good news is that Cha Cha is now old enough to use some medications to regulate the icky symptoms better than acetaminophen and steamy showers, but that has also thrown me into a tailspin of monitoring the use of said drugs. I am now juggling Motrin, Tylenol, Benadryl, Mucinex and Augmentin. Did I mention that since they are only separated by 5 pounds, the dosages are very similar yet different enough for it to be a significant issue? (That is why we have like 20 Tylenol bottles. Each kid gets one labeled with their dosage each time we go to the clinic...yippee!) Yeah, my paranoid fear that someone will get a bad mix, or too much, or in the case of the antibiotics not enough medicine requires a chart. For now I have a list, a command center and million highly calibrated syringes....I am officially a crazy person. The real method is to just avoid using this stuff whenever possible, and that is my general philosophy, but sometimes you have to suck it up and just be glad that we live in an age where we have these tools at our disposal.
Marking my door with a bio-hazard sign and moving on...guess this means no play date on Friday and it might behoove me to skip the baby shower this Saturday since parvovirus and pregnant ladies can be a bad mix...bleh.
