Was I the only one who Didn't Know that: Otoscope

We've had our first ear infection of the season and while I was filling the antibiotic prescription I spotted an otoscope for home use made by Dr Mom. I've always wanted one of these as I thought it would help me catch ear infections earlier, but I had no idea anyone made them for home use. I bought it and now I'm practicing looking at all the boys' ear drums trying to get a sense of what a healthy one looks like. Very interesting.

While I was at it, I also picked up...

Immunity booster vitamin supplement

Vick's foaming hand sanitizer

Fever reducer

New scanning thermometer

I hope we stay well, but if not, we'll be better prepared next time.
