I thought I’d give you a quick update of the sickly crew here. Sister Zoe is doing really well but Sister Sascha has a little ways to go yet, but she is a lot better than she was when this stuff started. That got me thinking though, which is always interesting and sometimes scary.
Medicine, pills mostly, is not an unusual thing around these parts. I take some meds to keep my UTIs at bay. Gracie takes a low dose of antihistamine daily. Zoe takes ½ a pill every day to fight off her itchies. Kit takes a pill every other day to help her with her asthma. Yes, Gracie and Kit both have asthma. Now, recently, Sascha and Zoe have been getting antibiotic pills every single day. You might find this amazing, but we are all good at taking our pills. Sister Precious takes pills easily too. Our Dad, who is our Medicine Man, says we are real champs when it comes to taking pills.
The hard part is catching us! We know “when it’s time” and we can run like the wind and hide under the bed before you know it. Unfortunately, or fortunately, Dad and Mom are pretty clever about varying the “time” just enough to catch us off guard. Once we’ve been had, Mom holds us and Dad gives us our pills. No fuss, no muss. Seriously, we really are that good at taking our pills. Even eye drops and ear drops are no problem. I’m even real good when Dad has to give me fluids.
So today, I am thankful that our Medicine Man knows how to give us pills when we need them. Of course being held by the Medicine Mom is always a bonus anyways! What about you, do you mind the medicine thing???
