The Advantage to Having A Brother Who's A Dr.

We went to Boise for the weekend to visit my brother. We had not been there for a while and since my b-day was on Saturday we figured it was a perfect excuse. We had lots of fun visiting with them. My neice has 2 rats, which the kids all think is pretty awesome. I on the other hand, think they are totally disgusting. I think it's the tail, it looks like a huge, fat, nasty worm.

They took us out to eat Sat. afternoon to T.G.I.Friday's. We had a yummy meal, and I got a birthday dessert. It was a very nice day. The kids ran around outside and then decided to put their bathing suits on and jump on the trampoline with a hose on underneath. Now, it was nice, but not that nice. They lasted just a few seconds in the water before they were back inside like little frozen icicles.

My poor brother always has to deal with all of our problems. Ever since he became a P.A. he's gotten numerous calls just from me, and I know I'm not the only one who calls him with questions. But, he's a pretty good sport about the whole thing. Before we started our fun on Sat., we took a trip to his office so we could all have our little "procedures" done. S had two warts that needed to be burnt off. He didn't like getting the shot, but once that was done he watched the rest of it. He had it burnt and then it needed to be scraped out so that there were no little roots still in there. So gross. Then DH had a couple skin tags cut off and an aging spot frozen off of his forehead. My SIL had 2 spots frozen off. I had a skin tag cut off and then I had some weird bump on my nose that was really bothering me. He numbed me and then burnt it off. Getting a shot in your nose is NOT a fun thing. It hurt pretty bad and made my eye just water and water. But, once that was over it wasn't too bad. I think skin stuff is pretty gross. I don't know if I could treat all that disgusting stuff all day long. But, I sure am grateful that I have a brother who can take care of all that fun stuff for us.

That's cool your brother can do that for you. My bro is going to med school and gets calls from me all the time!
