Christmas isn't Christmas without an ER visit

Last year I jokingly said we were starting a tradition of taking Princess Ana to the ER for Christmas Eve. This year the tradition changed a bit, but was continued.

The day before we left Aggieland we took Bubba Gene for a preemptive doctor visit hoping to catch any infection that he might have. We got antibiotics for an ear infection that was just starting. Ana had finished a round of antibiotics the day before, so we thought we had nipped the hospital visit in the bud.

Christmas Eve, the day we normally spent in the ER, came and went as did the next three days. The kids were healthy and happy. On Thursday we moved from my mom's house to my grandmother's house and forgot Bubba's antibiotic. Icy roads prevented a trip to get it. The next day he didn't feel well at all and in the evening we finally took him to the ER. His ear infection hadn't gone away. A shot of a second antibiotic and a prescription for a third seem to have cleared things up, so all is well that ends well.

Next Christmas we're just going to ask Santa for gift certificates for the ER of our choice and that the doctor we like be on call.
