Father's Day -- never a dull moment
Our day started out nice enough....some presents for Vic and then he went on a nice bike ride with his buddies.
He got back and we all went up the Community Centre pool for Sophie's friend Cami's birthday.
We left at around 3:30pm for a trip to Vernon so we could take Dad out to the White Spot for dinner (photo via iPhone). On the ride home Sophie started wailing that her ear was sore -- really sore. By now we were close to Salmon Arm and I told Vic that we should take her to the emergency room at the hospital since the walk in clinic isn't open on Sundays (grrrr). Vic droppped Sophie and I off and came back 25 minutes later and we were still waiting...and waiting....finally at 9pm, Dr. Phillips saw Sophie (she is the mom of one of Sophie's classmates). I was glad we came in to get it checked out because she had a huge piece of wax that she removed that was obstructing the view of a very red ear. She didn't think it was caused by swimmer's ear since it didn't have some of the usual signs, but still, who knows if all of her swimming the past 2 days caused it. She inserted some drops and a strong dose of Tylenol settled it down and before we knew it her and Fynn were doing their silly penguin walk in the ER.
never a dull moment around here.
