For the last three months my kiddo has been sick. We've gone to the ped every month with varying degrees of success. The antibiotics seemed to work, but then she was sick again. We were instructed to treat it as asthma, which wasn't effective.
Today we went in for what was supposed to be a check up for the fluid behind her ears only to find out her lungs were bad enough to need a breathing treatment. And chest x-rays.
I don't know if there's a diagnosis beyond 'bad lungs' yet. The ped will call us later with any diagnosis and the plan going forward.
This was not how I saw my day going at all when I left the house early this morning.
Five long hours later, we are home.
I'm wiped. Don't know if it's because I'm not on progesterone this week or if it's just normal 'my baby is sick' stress.
It doesn't matter because the day isn't going to stop. The to-dos march on.
Is My On-call Doctor Any Good?
