About a month ago, our local pharmacy didn't have enough supply to refill her prescription so we had to go to the pharmacy in the next town over. And then they ran out. Apparently, there's a shortage of bactrim. Who would have thought that possible? I don't know why I'm surprised given how we've experienced cath kit issues. Although, I think that had more to do with the incompetent supplier. So, because of the shortage, Anna's prescription was changed to a daily low dose of amoxicillin instead. I sometimes feel like it's a lose/lose situation. We don't want to risk another infection but who wants their kid on daily antibiotics?
Last Friday morning, Anna had her bi-annual urology appointment at Big City Hospital. Rich and I drove in with her so that we could both attend and then I could head off to work. The appointment consisted of ultrasound scans of her kidneys and bladder and then a follow up with her urologist. The good news is that her kidneys look fine and he did agree to reduce the amoxicillin in-take to every other day. The could-be-worse news is that he wants a VCUG performed, seeing as the last one was three years ago.
Rich drove Anna home after the appointment, worked for a few hours and then drove back into the city for our once a year date night. The Goo Goo Dolls, along with Daughtry, were playing at the outdoor pavillion, which has changed names numerous times, over in the Seaport area. Now that I think I know where my office is moving to, we checked that out too. (Not looking foward to the new commute, unless it's shorter than my current commute, but I have a feeling it won't be.) We grabbed dinner at Jerry Remy's restaurant because it had the shortest wait time - 45 minutes - and then headed to the show. We missed most of the opener - not much we could do about that. Daughtry was good and of course, the Goo Goo Dolls were the best. My kids know who they are because they're my most favorite band ever. The first time I saw them live was December 31, 1998. On a whim, I flew out to Arizona for a New Year's Eve show and the love has never stopped.
I was so tired that I was in bed, asleep by 8:30 Saturday night. Yesterday was Falmouth Road Race Day (Rich ran) and I finally finished the top of Allie's Elsa dress. I thought I had the lace trim that I wanted to finish the bottom but I don't so that project's on hold until I can get to the store. I hope to have some Cape pictures posted sometime this week and maybe some sewing projects, if I can wrap up something (anything!) without needing to go to the store, which I never have time to do!
