I'm grateful that there is a medical clinic in our small town. There are no doctors there, just nurse practitioners, but it's run by a very good hospital about twenty minutes away.
On Saturday Chickpea started running a fever and by Sunday night she was miserable. For nearly three days, she had a temperature of 103 degrees. Tylenol made her feel better, but I called the clinic yesterday morning. They were able to get her in that afternoon.
Of course, it's a little weird getting a check-up in a very small town. We know almost everyone there from church. I hope I never have any embarrassing health issues... :/
She's feeling a good deal better today (even without Tylenol) but I'm not sending her to school.
So I'm thankful for the clinic, and I'm thankful that Chickpea is feeling better!
