Some time in the last few days Afira found some "bed bugs". She broke out with bits the other day, last night it was pretty bad, I gave her some hydrocortizone which helped a little. This morninbg she woke me up said something about "Apothacary and Hospital" She couldn't take the itching any more. We road our bikes to the nearest apothocary, which was closed on Saturday (of course), I walked across the street to the bakery and asked an elderly woman, she gave us directions to the one that would be open. We had to wait 30 minutes, so we had coffee. The lady there gave her an oral med and a cream, she was concerned that we should get our money back from the insurance. We don't have any... It came to $15.00...That's less ... read more
