That Was a Long Day

Yes, today was a long day indeed. Ms. A has been feeling under the weather all week and I finally took her into the doctors. Poor little thing. First of all, her weight has dropped to 24.7 lbs (20th percentile) and we found out she has a bacterial infection, virus of some sort, and an ear infection. Her first ear infection, might I add. Once again, poor little thing.

Our day has been incredibly low key with lots of books, snuggle time, and television watching. Anything to keep her from being active.

Our other fun symptoms include - horrible cough, almost vomiting every time she coughs because she has so much mucous in her throat, a fever (the latest addition), and I can't think of what else.

As for her remedy, lots of doses of love, coupled with the following: Vick's vapor rub, amoxicillin, back to using her flovent inhaler, Tylenol to control her fever, a cool mist humidifier, and more loving snuggles.

Yes, it's been a long day. However, we were thrilled with our pediatrician, whom we met for the first time.

She has a follow-up appointment the first week in March for her 2-year appt. Let's hope everything goes better than this last one.
