In the Czech Republic parents are required to have their newborns checked by a pediatrician within two or three days after the baby is released from the hospital. That could have been a little stressful for us, but not when the pediatricians make home visits!! That’s right! We did not have to leave our apartment. Dr. Ticha, Lillian’s pediatrician came to us! Her conclusion? Lillian is a beautiful, healthy baby!
Dr. Ticha gave us prescriptions for very low dosages of vitamin K and vitamin D to give to Lillian. Jon walked across the street to the pharmacy to purchase these two items along with some rubbing alcohol. When the price came to 35 crowns (a little more than a dollar) for both prescriptions and the alcohol Jon just stared at the cash register in shock for a moment. I guess that makes up for the pancakes we had this morning with the maple syrup I found that cost almost 8$!! HAHA!
