doctor doctor gimme the news

We found a doctor and she's great! She was respectful, kind, and competent. We will be returning. She is fine with our weird selective vaccination plans.

Trixie does indeed have asthma, as I feared. She was prescribed Singulair, which blocks leukotrienes. I am almost certain the Federation fought the leukotrienes along the edge of the Neutral Zone, so I'm really glad they won't be in Trixie's lungs any longer.

(Also daily fluticasone propionate (Flonase) and albuterol as needed.)

Gloria's bizarre rash is healing and merited no treatment. The doctor said to bring her in if it comes back though.

And last but not least both girls were immunized today against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, and polio.

I hope this brings the Saga of Medical Discontent to an end.
