Whine, whine

Cave! Here comes a bit of <parent’s self-pity> I don’t want to be one of *those parents*, but seriously, wtf whyyyyyyy does an otherwise always healthy kid has to suddenly develop a debilitating painful limp (coxitis fugax, two weeks ago on a friday evening, just fully recovered yesterday) or a sudden feverish tonsillitis (today) on either holiday or weekend (or in our cases, friday afternoon just after all regular doc’s offices closed)? And in our case it’s definitely not that I was too busy during the week to notice a sick kid… since I had to stay at home all week already! We actually did go to the pediatrician yesterday, and the fever didn’t pop up until yesterday night… in the morning it was down again, only to return with monstrous tonsils this late afternoon (again, ironically, on a friday). I don’t want to go to the ER again tomorrow, especially not with a kid who isn’t critically ill (I just know that I’ll feel like one of those patients who come in with literally nothing and who could have gone during regular office times but deliberately waited until evening/weekend), but the family’s own doctor guy with the prescription pad is working out of town/district. 😦 Next week is supposed to be my last week of the practical year… I can’t be out sick again (or in this case, ill by proxy since the kid needs someone who takes care of him at home)! Damn you, Mr. Murphy and your evil law. That is exactly why most med students with kids choose pediatrics as voluntary rotation, but I didn’t want to be one of *those parents* either. Boo, hiss. </self-pity>
