difficult child told me the other day her throat was awful, tonsils were very swollen and she couldn't swallow. She made an appointment through the clinic where she got her insurance but they couldn't see her until mid March. She was going to just wait until then and suffer. I looked up the insurance info and told her they had urgent care clinics for walk-ins (they didn't tell her that when she called for the appointment grrrr and she didn't think to ask). They did a strep culture, rapid test negative, sent culture, still negative. They gave her naproxen for pain and a mouthwash to numb the throat. Today she says her throat looks worse, has large green area on tonsils. I told her to go back to the clinic. This time dr. says it looks awful and does a bacterial culture. Gave her a prescription for antibiotics after a secod dr came in to look who verified it looked awful (they are not prescribing antibiotics anymore for most things around here). She has had problems with infected tonsils for several years now and really needs them out but I don;t know how she can take the time off work for that. Since the clinic free pharmacy is closed I told her where to check for cheapest price and she finally found a place that charged $25. After she gets finished with everything and we finish our many calls and texts back and forth I told her I didn't know what you would do without me to help you figure these things out and her response was "I know that's why I have you." OMG she is so funny sometimes. on the other hand she is still totally unprepared to be living on her own.
