Home with sick child

Ok, the little one is sick and this is the pits. Took her to Dr. on Monday, they say she has the flu. Fine I will deal with it. Tuesday her Asthma kicks in and her fever spikes, call and they want to see her again. So went again today. UGH!!! They say to up her inhaler and increase the times I give her Tyonol. Then her Pedi comes in and asked how long has this rash/blisters been on her lower face. Since Tuesday I told him, well at that moment my little decided to heave and the poor Dr got a nice bath. I was so embarressed. Well the rash/blisters are spreading and she is now itching all over, so an appt tomorrow with a specialist. Am I tired of going to the Dr's already. I know that it isn't thier fault, but I have gone to one clinc on Monday, another site on Wednesday and now I am having to drive 30 minutes to the main hospital to see a specialist. Am I just a little concerned? YES!!! I know that I am one of these moms that takes thier child in more than most, but that is due to watching my little turn BLUE several years ago and I swore never would I wait if I was concerned. I am very lucky I have a very low co-pay for her to visit the Dr. or even go to the hospital, which with this one it is more than I personally wish I went. The Dr's in the emergency room know my little one and me by name (that is 1st basis). It is really sad.

Anyways, that has been my week so far. So I will get off my soap box and pray that tomorrow is a more informative day.


  1. :( I hope your baby is feeling well soon:)

  3. Praying for your little girl. I'm sorry she is sick. We are on first name basis with all our doctors and ER team as well. I will pray that your week gets better and she is better soon!!


  4. Kathryn, I am so sorry that you and your li'l one are going thru. I hope your DD gets well real soon.

    Hugs to you!!

  5. Oh, that poor little sweetie! I do hope she'll get well soon -- it's awful when your children are ill!

    And, NO!!! I don't think you're over-reacting at all. As a parent who loves her child, you exhaust yourself doing everything you think possible!

    I praying for relief for both of you.

  6. I hope your little one gets better real soon! It sux going from doctor to doctor. It is the story of my life. This week alone I have gone to urgent care, missed my physical therapist, pain magagement tomorrow and the list just goes on! Try to get some rest when you can and this will all be over soon. Good luck!
