Making Hospital Stays a Little Easier (Part Two)

Thanks to Candy for writing in with more ideas about ways to pass the time when little ones are in the hospital or home sick.  She shared:

My 4yo nephew just spent some time in a double hip spica cast and one thing that helped him was putting his favorite doll in similar bandages (iv bandaids, cast, ect.) and give him a little doctor kit. That way he could care for someone and feel in control for a change. Another thing are those little travel watercolor kits that are made for adults with a water brush (a brush that has the water right in the barrel, no need for messy spillable cups). The pigments are bright and satisfying and the cleanup is perfect for a hospital setting.

Great ideas!  We have some of those watercolor pen brushes and they would be perfect.  I also love the idea of giving kids their own little patients to care for.  Thanks Candy!  I hope your nephew is doing much better too.

My Own Little Medical Update

I figured I should post an update on my post from the other night.  It turns out that I didn’t have a bad reaction to the amoxycillin because of Mono.  I have developed a severe penicillin allergy and will need to avoid it and anything related to it for the rest of my years.  I had been on amoxycillin as recently as last spring and have never had the slightest reaction but something just went POOF and now my body is quite sure it’ll kill me!  I’m just fine now, though, and plan to stay a respectable distance from amoxycillin and all of its friends and family from here on out.  🙂
