Sam deserves as many naps and as much pizza as he wants.

He’s home, everybody ... AND HE’S ON DRUGS. I’m referring, of course, to Sam, who spent all morning in the emergency room at Baylor Medical Center in Garland [see previous post] and came home with a diagnosis and four prescriptions. He has an acute allergic reaction to a number of insect bites all over his body and a nasty one near his right eye that caused it to swell shut. Sam is taking Prednisone, prescription-strength Diphenhydramine (Benadryl), Cetirizine Hydrochloride and using Mupirocin antibiotic ointment to treat the nastiest rash in Texas.

At the moment Sam is unconscious in the family room because he’s thoroughly miserable and deserves as many naps — and as much pizza — as he wants. Please click here to send him a get-well-soon email. It was mighty sweet of you to think of this.
