Meds Shouldn't Make Things Harder

So Asher has bronchitis. He was pretty pathetic for a few days but after a couple nebulizer treatments, he's back to kicking his big brother's ass. Aidan said he wishes Asher was sick again. And ya know what? It really was peaceful while he was down.

Oh pipe down, Anonymous. Remember what we talked about last time? Kthanksbye!

I am in the middle of a letter to whoever the hell makes Prednisone liquid for kids. It's going something like this...

Dear Makers of Prednisone Who Obviously Don't Have Kids,

Have you put that shit you created in your mouth? Apparently not. It is raunchy! I tried putting it in applesauce, in juice, in peanut butter, and in Nutella. NUTELLA! And he spit it back in my face. Dude, if Nutella can't cover the nastyness of something, there's a serious problem. In short, you fucked something up. And thank you for that because I've got 9 more doses of this shit to get into him. He already won't eat or drink anything I've had my hands on because he's terrified I've slipped some of your poison medicine in it.

ThankyouverymuchforNOTHING,
Mom of a Dissatisfied Customer

Haha love the letter. It made me giggle.

When I was a kid I bawled my eyes out as my mother forced me to drink my medicine. I was positive that anything that tasted that bad would kill me.

My mother 1, me 0.

That is some nasty medicine. I had to give it to B once and he was totally out of character once he was on it.

Oh man - I haven't had the pleasure of having to use that yet. This post made me flash on when I had to put eyedrops in my 3 year old's eyes for pink eye. She was like the Incredible Hulk everytime we had to do it. I say 'we' because it took two of us to catch her and hold her down. I feel for you!

Huh, (scratching head in puzzlement while, once again, thinking back to the tweezer, scrotum and seed tick epidose). Seems so inconsistent, somehow.

Man, you can't disguise it in Nutella? That is REALLY bad! I used to make predisone for cats when I was still working as a compounding pharmacy tech. I was able to give it a tuna flavor and the cat loved it... so there should be a way for them to flavor it so that kids would take it easier. Not to mention, the pills are so small, it might be easier to hide those in a mouthful of Nutella.
Hope he feels all better soon.
