Limeade and Directions

The past couple of days Eric complained about a pain in his abdomen area, especially when he drank the limeade that I purchased for him. I took him to the doctor today. Questions asked, answers given. We were walked across that hall to the gastroenterologist who asked more questions. He asked them fairly quickly. Questions like, where does it hurt? When does it hurt? Does it hurt when you eat? Are you taking medications? A couple of presses on the abdomen and the big question, have you dry swallowed any pills in the last week?

The answered was yes. Eric asked, are you talking about the one that says “Take This Medicine With A Full Glass Of Water.” The doctor let Eric know that he needed to follow the instructions on his medications and to never dry swallow pills.

The consequences of not following directions, and ulcer and the wonderful need to take some liquid medication every 4 hours to coat the stomach along with and antacid once a day. No fried foods, chocolate, caffeine and of course no limeade for about a week. He assures me that he will pay more attention and follow directions.
