Tigger has acute bronchitis. The doctor prescribed hydrocodone/guaifenesin syrup, antiobiotic and stay home until at least Thursday. I also bought him a bottle of grape juice for vitamin C and a 2 liter of Diet Coke for the caffeine. I predict more sleep in his future.

Home now. Fed and through another short story, so ready for special birthday present doctoring.

Did not find a single "Dolly and the..." book today :(

so you just get huggles!

Re: failed utterly!

heh, given the subject line, I was ready to find a fatal typo in my journal entry. ;)

Thanks for looking.

I'm really looking forward to the day when we have our library finished, and our books catalogued. Then I'd probably know all sorts of other books I want. ;)

If he gets really congested, my doc had us go get an OTC medicine called mucinex, it REALLY helped relieve the congestion and let me breath enough to sleep.

Mucinex is just guaifenesin. Once he's over the worst of the cough, I'll switch him to crushed Mucinex in applesauce. Poor dear can't swallow tablets yet. That is, I'll crush it IF it's not time-release....







glamkit was told today to take the Mucinex for her sinuses.

As far as the crushing pills - do ask if it is time release. I always ask for capsules too (or liquid). I cannot swallow pills as an adult, so I've learned a couple things. And, applesause has been the best thing for me to take medicine.

It IS an extended release product, so I'll stick with the doctor prescribed syrup. It's not making him sleepy -- advantage of being a kid, I think.
