In what has become an unbecoming weekend tradition, Shelley took Reiko to the urgent care clinic this morning. Rei's had a headache the past couple days and was up last night with a fever. Of course these things happen on Fridays when our current family doctor takes a day off or on Saturdays so we hustle out for the after-hours clinic or to the ER. During the past month: ear infection for Kai, ear infection for Rei, tonsillitis for Kai, assorted colds and maladies for their parents.
The good news is that there is no ear infection or tonsillitis or any other identifiable cause for prescribed medication. The bad news is that Reiko missed her dance class this morning and a birthday party this afternoon. You know it's bad when she accepts the prospect of missing out on a birthday party without any protest or complaint.
