Daddy's Droopy Drawers and the Shots Heard Round the World - January 7, 2015

Well it seems the constant change in temperatures and environments  (we stayed in several hotels, including ones in NY City while sight-seeing last month), has caught up with us—Daddy is now sick as a dog! With his runny nose, hacking cough, headache and fever, he has contaminated us all!  Mommy is experiencing similar symptoms and I'm not feeling so good myself.  And despite Mommy’s best “Florence Nightingale” efforts for the last week, including her shopping spree of a half dozen over-the-counter medications, she could not nurse him back to health.  Yup, even Nyquil, the nighttime sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, fever, sore-throat, best sleep medicine did not help!

So, Mommy took over the wheel, found a medical clinic in Abilene, Texas, and Daddy is now at his first doctor’s visit in 20 years, not to mention his first experience with Obamacare!  A double-whammy!  Anyway, he just received a diagnosis of severe sinus infection.  Antibiotics and steroid needed ASAP!  Needless to say, he’s not looking too happy with his drawers down at is ankles and two needles being inserted in his butt cheeks!  Ouch!!
We will go to the nearest Wal-mart  to pick up Daddy's oral prescription and camp overnight.  Hopefully, it provides him some relief, and we all get some rest so we can get back on the road tomorrow morning.
Talk to you soon!
