Well leave it to Magda to pick up on the fact that Savannah was sicker than we knew. Savannah had a cold following New Year's but we just assumed it was due to a week of too much fun with family (we were worn out too). Her cold symptoms came and went except for a lingering junky cough and runny nose. The mama is not one to overreact so thought that too would pass in a week or two.
Apparently Magda didn't agree. Yesterday she "suggested" to the mama that Savannah go see the doctor. So off we went at 8am this morning to the sick kid drop-in hours (March of the Sick Kids is what the mama likes to call it). Savannah happened to wake up 40 minutes early this morning (probably because she didn't feel good) so we got to the doctor's office 10 minutes early and were second in line. Done with our visit by 8:30 with an ear infection diagnosis and a prescription.
The mama has to add that she was only going to the doctor to appease Magda. The mama still questioned the value of taking Savannah to the doctor as we sat in the waiting room with all the other kids sitting quietly not feeling well while Savannah played with the trains and belted out her favorite tunes.
