This Week at the House {and some hospital tips}

This week there is only 1 goal:

Get my Andrew well again! I am so sick of him being sick. He has a pediatric viral syndrome - which only means that there are no meds and we have to just deal while it runs it's course.We hung out at Children's Hospital Sunday evening from 6pm until 1:30am - I know, right?! I really cannot complain to much. The staff was awesome, the waiting room was awesome, and the doctor was awesome. They even had snacks/drinks for the kids.

He had a high fever over the weekend that just would not go away (and a cough, too...ugh). Finally, I just had to call our pediatrician and they recommended we take him to the after hours clinic. We got an appointment and headed over after having some dinner. If you have kids - always call the pediatrician (even when they are closed)! I refuse to go to the ER with children. The doctors who work there are too quick with you. The waiting room is full of idiots it seems - like the guy who wondered how jumping off a roof onto a trampoline would work out for him. The staff at the check-in are so NOT people-persons. So, moms/dads - call YOUR pediatrician before busting a move to the local ER. It's just not worth the wait time there... Now if you have a serious life-threatening issue, that is a completely different situation. However, if your city/town is lucky enough to have a Children's hospital, then please choose that over the regular hospital.

Anyhoo, I just want him to feel better. He was fine all day today, but fevers spike at we have a fever again.We may go to the park or library if he feels up to it towards the end of the week.

I do have a menu to share, though :)

Monday - Pork Chops and Rice
Tuesday - Chicken, Sweet Potatoes, and Butternut Squash in the Slow Cooker
Wednesday - Skinny Italian Spinach Meatballs
Thursday - Chicken Fried Rice
Friday -  Leftovers
Saturday - Grilled Chicken
Sunday  -  Pan Fried Pork Chops

What are you doing this week? Do you make menus for the week?
