A Viral Infection

Posted Jan 27 2009 6:27pm

Aiden got a trip to Dr. Pediatrician this morning. And after an examination and chest xrays, it has been determined that he has a viral infection. Dr. Pediatrician was boarderlining to put him on antibiotics, but with surgery coming up, he is on antibiotics 3 times a day for the next 10 days.

While we were waiting on the xray tech to enter Aiden's information into the computer, Aiden decided to have a meltdown. He saw the space capsule Pig-O-Static contraption used for taking chest xrays. Aiden hates this thing.. with a passion. I think he remembers it from heart surgery and subsequent xrays.

Immediately following Dr. Pediatrician, we headed to Dr. Pediatric Cardiologist for the Holter monitor and surgical clearance. Aiden fell asleep on the way there which is only 2 miles between the offices.

He started to wake up as we were walking back to the exam room. Where another tantrum began.

I then had to go to Wal-Mart to get Aiden some Motrin, part of Chris's birthday gifts, and my second nail repair this week. (I had my nails filled in on Saturday, but one thumb nail broke Sunday and another one this morning... Serious irritation with my nail tech!)

Aiden wasn't happy with me.

While in Wal-Mart, I got Aiden a few new toys since he's been through so much the past few days. Aiden was then happy with me.
