Thankfully I got a whole new batch of sick days this year. I’ve used 14 total (with Ivf, a death in the family, stomach bug and Ava’s sickness).
Last Friday it was diarrhea (4 at daycare, none at home). Monday was a holiday, Tuesday the phone call came in the afternoon and hubby left to pick her up. Wednesday my mom was nice enough to call in sick so we didn’t have to (I did just take 2 days last week for the stomach bug). And low and behold Friday I got the call at 10am. So for $250 a week, Ava went to school 1 full day and 2 half days. The joys of daycare.
We went to the doctors. I was hoping it was just her molars but it was the dreaded DOUBLE ear infection. She’s doing pretty well, not eating much and slept 3.5 hours. On a low note, she’s down to 23.5 lbs when she was over 25 at an appointment in December. So we have another weight check in a month. They aren’t overly concerned but don’t want to wait until June for another check.
So alternating Motrin and Tylenol with amoxicillin twice a day. Hopefully she starts feeling better soon!
