Pray for our littlest one please. This is the third weekend in a row that she's had a fever. Tonight it has spiked up to 104 again. She was fever free Wed. and Thurs. and all of today, but tonight before bed she suddenly got very clingy and sick looking again. We will be heading back to the doctor tomorrow morning to see what is going on.
Update: Well...we came out of the office with antibiotics and no answers :) She has clear lungs, alot of drainage, ears look fine, she looks healthy otherwise ....here's some medicine to get rid of the infection!
The only thing he really said was she is the youngest and as you have more children, the younger ones seem to catch more things. He also said in the future we could do some follow up visits to see if her immune system is reacting to her vaccinations or rejecting them etc. He said there really isn't a concern about chronic diseases (she has had 20 colds in 25 months) like tuberculosis or cystic fibrosis because children with those usually aren't thriving physically as well (and we have a very plump, I mean healthy, looking girl!) He said it isn't Mono, and we don't need to worry about pneumonia or chest infection because her lungs sound very healthy, it is all in her throat right now.
What do you do???? I hate seeing her sick sooo often. She never gets just a mild cold either, it is always a croupy cold or deep chest cough...even if the other kids all seem fine.
I'm glad it's nothing serious. She is playful and active today so I'm happy :)
