Today was an ambitious day. Ford woke up in same position he was in yesterday. Whiny, clingy, feverish, eye drainage, and really congested. Today we have added a symptom of Diarrhea. I am pretty sure he has a petrie dish of illnesses going on. If you ask a Dane, which I did, the remedy is to go outside and continue herbal tea in eyes(once again, rolling my eyes). So we attempted to take Ford out of the condo and experience Copenhagen from a locals perspective. It took us 30 minutes of pure hell for everyone involved, until I convinced my husband that it is time to go back to the condo, where we will remain for the rest of the day.
Thankfully, in the meantime, we have been calling his mom, who has been continuing to call her doctor and explain our concern with our sons eyes. By 4pm, we had a prescription at the Pharmacy!! I thought to myself, how hard can it be to go to "pharmacy" and pick up a prescription? Well, it is not like the US of A. Against my sons desires, we left the house, kicking and screaming, to the pharmacy which took 3 attempts at different stores. We then took his mothers(CPR-which is our SSN) to pharmacy to get prescription. I had to carry stroller up the stairs while Ford screamed bloody murder and everyone looking at me. They weren't looking at me because my son was crying, they were looking at me because I brought my child in the store out of his stroller!! In Denmark you leave children in stroller outside of cafe, restaurants, errands, etc. All I could think was, somebody is going to smother my child because he would be screaming so loud. Certainly, not worried about anyone stealing him. ( I love you Ford!!) They didn't understand what I was asking and I had to call Rasmus on the phone and have him explain it to them. Needless to say, both attempts out of house on my own, have been epic fails, but I'm not giving up!! Always tomorrow. Insert palpitations in my chest and fear of doing anything, but write a blog safely indoors!!
