Just wanted to give y'all an update on Earl. (Sorry to interrupt the coversation. )
You guys were right, he has walking pneumonia. Our Dr. is so awesome - when she realized that we are self-pay, she gave us all the meds from her samples. Well, everything except some cough syrup with codein, but that was only $11.59. He is now on antibiotics (Omnicef), two inhalers (Advaire and Proventil), an expectorant (Liquibid-D), the cough syrup and tylenol for the fever. He's sleeping very well right now.
She also gave us a discount on the office visit, which still ended up running $90. (Ouch!) But with all the drugs she gave us, it could have been much, much worse.
She did question a bunch about West Nile Virus, and said he may have it but there's nothing that she can really do about it if he does, save the 'scrips she gave him already. She said to watch him and if he takes a nosedive to take him to the ER. God I hope it doesn't come to that!
