Sharing is caring, but lately the only thing we seem to be sharing in this house is germs. Seriously, I cannot remember a another winter when my entire family has been sick so many times. My usually super healthy kids have been passing back cold germs to one another for what seems like an eternity. While hubby and I have an ongoing competition of who needs the sick day more, it seems that the dog has been the healthiest one of the bunch. But sometimes just being sick isn’t the worst part of being sick. Performing the juggling act of schlepping your sick kiddo to the pediatrician’s office with your healthy kid in tow, trying to make an appointment for yourself at your doctor’s office even though you can’t find the time to take a shower, and when things go wrong (as they sometimes do), trying to find the fastest and easiest way to help your kids feel better means you need convenient and reliable help that I’ve found at the Walgreens Healthcare Clinic Washington DC.
So for these reasons, here are…
1. When I needed a flu shot and couldn’t find the time to make an appointment with my primary care physician.
In an attempt to stay healthy this winter, I knew I needed to get a flu shot, but when I called my doctor’s office, the appointment times didn’t work with my schedule (read: I would sooner fight off the flu than take my kids to the doctor’s office with me). So I popped into Walgreens Healthcare Clinic, got the flu shot, and was out in 15 minutes. I was vaccinated, the kids got a few snacks from Walgreens, and visions of my children wrecking the doctor’s office waiting room or making it rain with tongue depressors and cotton balls were just a distant memory.
2. The whole family is sick and I was sick of everyone being sick
Right around Thanksgiving everyone in this house had a nasty cold. We treated our symptoms with over the counter meds and lots of TLC, but a few weeks later all four of us were still snotty messes. I try really hard to wait it out before taking antibiotics or giving them to the kids; however, it was clear we needed a prescription to get over a cold turned into a sinus infection. The logistics of getting both kids to their pediatrician, an appointment for me, and an appointment for my husband, plus a trip to the pharmacy to get all of our meds hurts my brain a bit. I knew it would be quick and easy for all of us to hit up the Walgreen Healthcare Clinic, get checked out by their healthcare provider, pick up the prescription right away since we were inside our pharmacy, grab a few TLC items, and head home to get better. The life of a mom made simple, yes please! More information here: https://antibiotic-store.com/
3. A sick kid in Disney and a snow storm on the way
In what can only be described as “the perfect storm,” my little lady started off our recent trip to Disney World in Princess bliss but ended the trip sick as can be. Here she is meeting all of the Princesses in Cinderella’s castle. How adorable is her little face?
Then all of a sudden her smile was gone and she was miserable in the happiest place on earth. It broke my heart to see her with a fever, body aches, and complaining that her ear hurt. No one should ever be sick in Disney.
Our flight was scheduled to land back home the morning of yet another major snow storm. I knew there was no way we could get off the plane, get an appointment with her pediatrician last minute, and get home safely before the storm hit and had us snowed in for at least a day. So we stopped by Walgreens Healthcare Clinic where they saw her right away. While I grabbed her prescription, hubby grabbed all of the essentials to help us make it through the snow. Teamwork! Then we were back home to get our little lady healthy and wait out the snow.
