Again, our doctor said, I don't see any ear infections. His throat looks fine. His chest is congested but it is just bronchiolitis. She said she doesn't want to prescribe an antibiotic without knowing what she is treating? That is all well and good, but at what point are you making an 11 month old suffer for no good reason???? Why must it be so difficult to get treatment??? What would it hurt to try an antibiotic?
I gave Owen his first dose of Zithromax at 10:30 am. He then slept until 12:30 at which point when he woke up-- he has not run a fever, he has smiled for the first time in a week, he has eaten something other than just nursing, and he has crawled around like his old self (albeit a little slower than normal).
Clearly, he had a bacterial infection. I am so angry that I had to make 3 visits to the doctor to get him the help he needed.
Am I the only one with this problem??? I do not routinely go to the doctor. In fact with 5 kids I haven't been to the doctor with any of them (except for well visits) for over a year. This last two weeks I have been 4 times (once with Adam and he had double pneumonia) and 3 times with Owen who clearly had something.
Would you be looking for a new doctor if you were me???
We only had sacrament meeting.
We still don't have power -- although 2 crews were here and they have restrung the wires. Now apparently someone has to inspect the line and approve the turning on part. Just another step in the right direction --
In case you were wondering it has been an entire week without power.
Today was hot and humid-- 88 or 89 outside and the same in the house. At least outside we get a little breeze. So Trent and Owen enjoyed the outdoors and got in a cute little nap.
Notice the 2 leaves?? One on Owen's back and one by his feet??? Yes, those leaves just fell on him. I guess that means fall is coming.
Not sure I am ready for that, but oh well!!
