I was going to take her to the clinic immediately, but #1, we hadn't had lunch yet, and #2, the clinic person has to take a mandatory lunch break from 1:30 until 2:30. We got to McDonald's around 2:15 (across the street from the clinic), and ate quickly. We had to wait 45 minutes when we got to the clinic at 2:45. She was in tears the whole time we sat there .... it was pitiful. We were finally seen and the prescription was sent to our pharmacy. The good news there was that the medicine was free.

The doctor/nurse practitioner was going to give Jaydin liquid medicine, but we asked for pills. She, then, was going to give her 2 pills in 1/2 the dose so that each time she took them, she'd have to take 2. She thought the normal pills were too big for Jaydin to swallow. I assured her that it wouldn't be an issue. When she called it in to the pharmacy, the pharmacist questioned whether Jaydin could swallow them. When we got to the pharmacy to pick it up ... they asked AGAIN. LOL!! Jaydin swallows them without a hitch. She's done the pill thing for over a year, so it's not an issue for her anymore.
Don't your doctors know yet to listen to you. Poor Jaydin...I hope the pills worked quickly.
