We are pleased to introduce the newest member of the Hythecker crew, Miss Joyanna Beth Hythecker. Isn't she such a beauty!?
As Mrs. Hythecker and her new little one adjust to life's new rhythm outside of the womb, Mrs. Limbaugh will be joining our team. Recently Mrs. Limbaugh left full-time clinic nursing to stay home with her two boys. We are happy to have her fill in for the next few months.

Clear Creek has had a couple of cases of head lice. Nursing staff recommend occasionally inspecting your child's hair.
Head lice. Any parent that has ever experienced a head lice infestation is probably feeling overwhelmed with a sense of panic reading those two words. Those of you that have never experienced head lice in your home consider yourself blessed. :) These little critters can be quite the thorn in one's side.
That being said, the key to eradicating these pests is patience, persistence, head lice shampoo, a metal toothed comb (purchased separately from the head lice kit at any drug store), and good lighting. Follow the directions on the shampoo bottle and then start egg picking. Removing all the nits (eggs) from the hair is the ticket to the end the head lice journey. Happy picking! :)
