DrT has been attending to all our sniffs and colds since before the children came along. His medications, colourful syrups in plastic opaque bottles. Black for coughs, yellow, green or orange for running nose or fever. Tummy upset, then it's kaolin. A very old-fashion traditional medicineMan. There was a time when his prescription gave me itchy eye(adversed reaction to the eye drop) eldest's eyeball rolling(adversed reaction to the vomit medication) misdiagnosed my cough/fever(on my mycoplasma pneumonia), a hepatitis jab for my mum that left her with a blueblack mark for weeks, and with the latest, oversight, of an acute appendicitis. To err is human, to forgive divine. DrT is in his 60s, a jovial optimistic man. However with the latest episode, we are changing our family doctor.
