 They were coughing and they have been for a couple of days which is normal around this time of year. This morning ones throat was sore and the other had a headache. Well after xrays and all that turns out they have pneumonia. So they are on amoxicillin. And will be out of school for three days.  So its all clear liquids, hot teas and soups here....

Hows your day?

Why the ER and not your Pediatrician?

You didn’t have to. You could have taken them to their regular doctor or an urgent care instead of wasting the ERs time.

I took my kid to the pediatrician for a bad cough today. Sinus infection and allergies. $25 copay for the pediatrician. I don't even want to know what the ER would have cost.

The one time I took DD to the ER for her asthma (she was in the red zone), they diagnosed her with pneumonia. Her pediatrician followed up and didn't agree with the diagnosis. Told me to go to the children's hospital next time.

We were at urgent care on Sunday for strep and scarlet fever. Today he feels great so even though he was off of school he was bouncing off the freaking walls
