Alex had a severe asthma attack on Thursday and our ped. sent us to the ER. He is now on oral presidone (misspelled), amoxicillin and 4 hours breathing treatments. I am having a horrible time figuring out how to give him the medicine by myself. The little stinker already knows how to lock his teeth and spit it out. I have tried to put the amoxicillin in milk and it is not working. He is two so there is really no bribing him.
Any suggestions? Also, why does the ped. bother prescribing grape oral medication or bubble gum tasting Amoxicillin? Alex doesn't care. He is not going to take it anyway. He glares at the medicine spoon and immediatly clamps those little toddler teeth.
Kristi-who wants one month to go by with no ER visits or at least become a secret shopper of ER's so I can earn some money from it!
