Sydney in her "sick-bed" She was diagnosed with Pneumonia the next day, almost 2 weeks ago and put on Omnicef.
She continued to be lethargic, and her cough got more and more crackly. Fever returned after a few days.
We went back to the doctor exactly 1 week after her initial diagnosis. She prescribed Zithromax and Tylenol with Codeine (so she could sleep...the coughing was keeping her up nights). We were also told that if she was still having trouble on Monday we would need to have some chest x-rays done. 2 days later...
She's back! Not 100%, we know we have to take it easy with her for at least a month. But antibiotics, the right ones, are miraculous! We are so grateful for modern medicine and it's power to heal.
(she took to licking around her poor lips that would dry out with the cough and now has a red rash all around them that I'm trying to keep cream on....she LOVES that...not.)
