Tonsilitis, otitis, sinusitis, everythingitis

Today the kids and I paid our GP a visit.  I believe in letting a cold run its course but after a week I reckon it is time to help it along.

In summary:

I have otitis (ear infection), sinusitis, throatitis and coughitis.

Wouter is pretty much as I am, so I guess he has the same.

Carien has serious bilateral otitis (both ears are badly infected – bear in mind that she finished antibiotics for the same a week ago), severe everything-above-the-neckitis and to top it off, her chest made the GP roll her eyes.  She didn’t even comment on it.  To keep with the theme for this post, a dodge chest will henceforth be known as chestitis.

And then we get to Boeta.  Boeta has a runny nose.

I am on a 5 day course of hyper-strength antibiotics, cortizone, stuff to stop the coughing, stuff to stop the throat from clogging up and a couple more.

Carien is on a 10 day course of antibiotics (since the previous stuff didn’t work we are really getting out the big guns now), some megamix of stuff that the GP mixed up and a lot of love.

Boeta is on Rinex.  Because he likes taking medicine when everyone else does.

So here we are.  Our “sick” chid turns out to be the healthiest of us all.  Wouter tentatively advanced the theory that Boeta’s immune system is compensating for all the months that it was inactive and he was neutropenic.  I can live with that.

Ethan has tonsilitis and general upper respiritory infection.  But mostly tonsilitis.
