… for everytime a heard a pediatrician say:

  • It is probably some virus;
  • There is something going around;
  • I’ll prescribe some amoxicillin…;
  • It will go away in 6 to 8 weeks;
  • I’ll ask my colleagues;
  • We’ve been seeing that in the office a lot… it is probably some type of infection or virus;

I’d be rich! Growing up in Brazil, there was never a time that my parents took me to a doctor that we didn’t come home knowing precisely what was affliciting me… and nothing that wasn’t cured by some type of shot and a day of rest.

The worst part of taking my kids to see a doctor with questions and hearing the answers above, is having to pay them in the end!
