It’s been hurting my heart lately to see so many families with kiddos down with the flu. Lilly and Gracie have had so many friends out for days on end the past few months, so incredibly sick with the flu! My own Mama was down for al ost two weeks over Christmas. It’s awful this year. When Sally and Gracie began to show signs of getting sick, I started to panick that I’d have to take them both out to the doctor risking even more germs especially for baby Olive. We’d much prefer to be all snuggled into bed together resting and relaxing, avoiding the pediatrician, med express and God forbid the ER. Sometimes, though, seeking medical attention is absolutely necessary. Luckily we can spend many a sick day remaining cozy at home thanks to UPMC AnywhereCare. This fantastic new app from UPMC Healthplan is such a good tool for parents to have in their arsenal to fight against the flu this season. We can quickly and easily access quality medical advice from professionals right from any device we have the app hooked up on. That means less running around to last minute doctors appointments and offices and more time snuggling little ones and helping them rest and get better. Anyone who downloads the UPMC AnywhereCare app now through March 5th will be entered to win a digital thermometer! Checkout this brand new video showcasing this fantastic app and see why it’s such an exciting new way to access healthcare. I’m still just so excited about how convenient this app is for busy parents. Virtual healthcare visits with trusted healthcare providers for symptoms like coughs, colds and sore throats.
I hope all these germs are missing your homes this year. Have a great (and healthy!) rest of your week.
