Acetaminophen (039/365)

 2010 02 08 IMG_4265w
“The desire to take medicine is perhaps the greatest feature which distinguishes man from animals.”

Sir William Osler (1849-1919), Canadian physician. Quoted in Harvey Cushing, Life of Sir William Osler, vol. 1, ch. 14 (1925).

TIME:  4:52 PM
PLACE:  Kitchen
SUBJECT:  Children’s medicine

DramaQueen and StellaDella stayed home from school today due to illness.  SD had a fever last night; DQ’s throat is sore and she has a cough and general achiness, but no fever.  SD keeps wanting me to phone the doctor, but she’s not sick enough to warrant a call.  Her fever and other aches can be controlled by the store-brand acetaminophen, thank goodness.  I’m hoping that in a day or so she and DQ will be over whatever they have.  Man, am I ready for winter and the sickness that it brings to be over.
