Baby's first experience with poison control - March 7, 2009. I almost made it to two years without calling poison control!!!
I'm not fine, because DUDE what if it had been something more serious?!? I am so scatter-brained and sleep-deprived and always doing nineteen things at once. Elaine has thrush and I've been giving her some prescribed medication. I forgot to put the dropper back on the bottle. And then I walked off and left it. For two hours.
It was only by chance I saw Val under the dining room table and since I know she tends to be sneaky I glanced under there and saw her DRINKING FROM THE MEDICINE BOTTLE.
"Baby drink?" she offered me the bottle as I scrambled for my cell phone.
The lady I spoke with from poison control was nice and calming and assured me that Val would probably only get a tummy ache or indigestion at most. Thrush is caused by yeast which is a fungus and treated topically and so the medicine isn't really ingested.
