Listening to the TV with your Eyes Closed

February 12th, 2008 · 7 Comments · Family Life

This morning the BoyChild said, “I think I’ll just lay here and listen to the TV with my eyes closed.”

We already had an appointment with the BoyChild’s doctor to talk to him about ADHD drugs. So, we kept the BoyChild home from school and took him to the doctor this afternoon.

Today he had water, a little more water, Motrin, water, a LaraBar, water. Oh yeah. He did have some water. Never very much at a time, but David was plying him with water all day.  Mainly because I would call and say, “has he had anything more to drink?” every fifteen minutes or so.

The Doctor gave him a shot because he has strep. Do you have any idea how hard it is to get antibiotics that don’t have one of the top 8 allergens in them?

Tonight I let him lay in my bed and watch TV before he went to sleep.  And as he snuggled down on the dog, he said, “I think I’ll just lay here and listen to the TV with my eyes closed.”

And I thought that sounded like a lovely idea and I did too.

    Aw, poor buddy! Being allergic to both penicillin and sulfa drugs myself, I can understand how hard that would be for somebody who is allergic to all of the f-ing food additives they stick into drugs.

    Wel, bless his little heart! I hope he’s feeling much better soon! Snuggling in bed and listening to the TV with one’s eyes closed sounds great to me.

    adhd drugs are something that are a part of my life two of my kids – anyway I think lying with eyes shut is a good idea too.
