Today at the Doctor's Rooms

Megan's been complaining of abdominal pain and tummy cramps on and off for a week now.  Today I finally took the day off and took her to the doctor to have it checked out as I was tired of her whining about it. I thought she was just playin' it up in order to avoid going to school and getting a wee bit more attention.  (Like average 7 years olds will do)

R300 later...the Doctor said her diet is poor (surprise! surprise!) I could've told you that... The damn child eats like a bird!  She lives on crap and doesn't drink enough fluids.  Doc has put her on antibiotics to cover any intenstinal infections she may have and I have to monitor her from here on.  If she doesn't get better we need to take her for xrays.

So bottom line, a change in diet for her and I'm glad she heard it from the doctor and not just her mum.  I get the usual rolling eyes as if to say (what do you know, mum).  Lets hope this pushes her to eat more fruits, veggies and avoid too much white bread and junk!

We fooled around with my phone camera while in the waiting room. We had some side-ways glances from other patients because we were snapped pictures of each other and giggling uncontrollably.  We spent some good quality time together today.

Some of the shots.


Does she look sick to you?

No lollipop for her this time...

Eish girl, I hope it helps. I can give you all the usual advice, but we all know you can give the the healthiest and best of foods - they still need to actually EAT it.

Well she looks happy! Hope the ABs work for her. Great photos - you two had a little fun. :)

Not that she is......but I can remember as a kid pretending to be sick so I didn't have to go to school. I'm sure my parents knew. Hope she feels better. Now mom, make her eat her fruits and veggies.

Glad it's not a serious thing... and gee, just one lollipop can't hurt...

Hope the doc spoke some sense into her - why is it they have to hear it from others before they believe us?

Try and get her onto Low Gi/wholeweat bread - much better for her little tummy workings and all.

Shame man. She looks poorly :)

But sometimes hearing it from the Dr can do wonders!

The good thing is you took her and now know and can correct from here onwards.
Children hate veggies....lol

You are the parent? What is it these days with kids telling the parents what they are and aren't gonna do!
You give her the food......she eats it! Not that difficult is it? No priveleges until it is eaten, sit there until it is. Worked for my parents! And when we were at Junior School was the same, I hated and still do parsnips but had to eat them! YES I sound like an old fart but I am not that much older than you and Janie and things seem to have gone to rot very quickly in the younger world. I can see the battles ahead with young Claire......but she will not win mark my words!

She doesn't look sick to me. Yet again, I consume more sugar than air.
