We went back to the doctor tonight. Thanks to Melanie who held down the fort at our house WITH Isaac, Nathan and Jacob (basically doing my job for me). The nurses wanted Lucy to be seen tonight as opposed to tomorrow due to some concerns.
So (because I often use this blog to go back and "remember" when Lucy got sick, was on antibiotics etc) tonight we changed antibiotics since the amox. wasn't doing a think for the bugs in her nose and her tonsils were still very enlarged. Lucy was also put on claritin as they found allergy cells in her nasal swab. I thought we'd make a quick run to the pediatrician and have him tell us "it's a virus" or "that's how it'll be until they come out" but instead it was blood tests, strep test, nasal swab .... poor Mel, I asked her if she could watch the boys for a quick hour.
Lucy will start on the new antibiotic tomorrow. I gave her a hit of claritin in her sleep (she wakes up a lot on her own accord, but she'll usually sleep through changing beds, and giving medicine). I just hope this helps her for the next month and a half until her surgery. She's just so tired and volitile at time (oh lord I hope the volitility is due to the tiredness).
