And oh what fun it was We had to take Rach to a dermatologist there b/c no one local will take BlueCare. Sunday after church we put $15 of gas in the van...on the way down there we put $10 more in, then on the way back we had to put $20 more in! GAH!

Anyways, left for down there about 1, dropped Issac off with MIL. We got down there about 2:30 or a little after...drove around looking for a parking place, almost everywhere you could park you had to PAY! At a HOSPITAL! Well we finally found a free parking place and walked into the office. Fill out the paperwork and wait at least 30 minutes to be called back (yes we were early). Call us back then we wait for the Dr. She comes in, she's very nice. Tells me everything about eczema, like I didn't already know, ya know? She prescribes Synalar, a steroid, and Elidel for maintenance. we use the steroid twice a day on her for 2 weeks, plus we can use the Elidel on top of it if we want to. We're supposed to take her back in a month. I felt like it was all a waste of time and gas really...all she did was gab and give us an Rx...the Ped could have done that himself and it's only 15 minutes away! We'll see how her situation is next month I guess...I'm not wasting my time and gas if all that's gonna happen is talk and prescribe!
