My Day Off and Doctor Visits

I took the day off from work today to take the boys to the doctor. I had originally planned on only taking half a day and taking the boys to the pulmanoligist(asthma doc), but then Elijah needed a check up with the psych, so I made it a whole day!

Overall, it was a good day. We slept in to 7:30, which was really nice. We had a lazy morning and then Elijah and I left around 9:15 to go and see the psych. It was an awesome visit. We talked about how well he was doing and she noticed a significant decrease in his tics, just from the time we were in the office. I left her the paperwork to complete for camp. It has to be dated for next week, so I couldn't get it today. Elijah and I left there to run a few errands and then dropped off his prescription at CVS. We also stopped and grabbed a pizza for lunch and brought it home.

Our original pulmanoligist appointment was for 2:10, but due to a scheduling problem on their end they called and we moved it to 4:00. We spent the afternoon at home and just hung out. I paid a few bills and just enjoyed the time at home. I started some chicken in the crock pot and cooked some rice! We got to the doctor's office around 4:00 and left around 5:15. This was actually a quick visit and now we just had to fight traffic home. We arrived home around 6:00 and dinner was basically done, so we warmed things up and ate.

I think all of us needed an easy day today. Just a day to not have to do a lot of chores and to relax. The next doctor's appointment is on March 4th to see the neurologist!
