whats happening in the clinic, football

this week have been seeing a lot of strep throat
still am seeing a lot of bronchitis      most of it is viral but
some cases have developed a bacteria infection which 
requires antibiotics 
some of the bronchitis cases have been wheezing a lot 
and have responded to bronchodilators in form of 
inhalers or nebulizing treatments

spent a hour with a dad who came in for fatique
but the real problem was his daughter was arrested
for the second time using metamphetamine 
he is devastated      they have spent several thousand
dollars on attorney fees on the two arrests plus has 
had her in drug rehab more than once and has 
used up all of the insurances benefits for rehab

this time she was caught in the county where i practice
thats not a good place to get caught even for speeding 
much less doing met
she probably will not  get off this time without jail time 
she may qualify for a 6 month drug rehab program with 
the legal system that requires incarceration the full 
6 months 

his fatique is all related to the stress from his daughters
legal problems

the same day saw a patient for depression followup who 
has a son that sneaked out at night and wrecked the fathers
car     the son had drug paraphernalia in the car and in 
his room       he is a senior who has done well up to now 
but now his grades are dropping a lot       she is afraid 
they will loose him in his senior year 
they are having him see counseling and has done restrictions 
on his activities
parents hug your kids     be thankful if things are going 
right with them 

well have one more chance for one of my teams to win this weekend
come on razorbacks beat lsu

first the cowboys lost     if you saw the game you know it was
the cowboys game until the end before drew brees blew in
and did his thing
will say the cowboys seem to have the umph again

that now for a year
the aggies did look good though
