Greenvale x 2

It had been a really long time since we had a visit to Greenvale. I was certain that everyone had forgotten our existence and that every last penny I had would forever more go to Dr. Davis.

Julien was due for a re-check on his ears and an updated blue form. The office was unexpectedly quiet, which was awesome. Our visit with Dr. Dudgeon went well. Julien even agreed to routine blood work and two shots and I'm absolutely positive that it had nothing to do with me bribing him either. The monogrammed Florida Gators hat in this post has nothing at all to do with anything regarding any alleged bribery that may or may not have occurred.
Did I just hear a gasp of disbelief when I said two shots? Yes, I agreed to give Julien two shots at one time. Very possibly because he's ten-years-old and healthy and he hasn't had any vaccines in years.

I was off work because of something that I had to do so I told Julien we would have lunch after his appointment. Well, we no more than got to our destination when we ran into Julien's friend. His Mom offered to take the boys to lunch and a movie and I just couldn't say no. I guess that was a good thing, because right after, daycare called.

I knew that Addie wasn't herself because she kept me up the night before. So, I didn't second guess myself when I called Greenvale to see if we could come back in. Addie-pa-tattie does not have the physical composition in order to fight off sinus infections by herself. It is a given that she has to have an antibiotic. Addie really did feel miserable because she didn't say a single word to Dr. Dudgeon. She waved at one of the nurses, but that was it. I didn't even have the chance for Addie to show Dr. Dudgeon how amazing she is. Everyone was so great and it honestly was nice to be back. When we left, Addie had enough boo-boo band aids to last her a week!

Addie has her two-year check-up soon. I already get sick just thinking of it. Although, I'm so stinking proud of Addie for all she does, that doesn't get me out of having to answer "no" to all those milestone questions.
Minute by by day.
