We had our follow up Dr's visit today... can I just say I LOVE this pediatrician. We are in a group with 5 Dr's and all came highly recommended. The one we chose I really like a lot. Then with this bought of illness we ended up in the office on his day off and got to see another Dr. Oh my goodness - I love her! And so does Megan. She was the happiest little girl ever today. The nurse at the sign in desk did a double take and said "obviously this isn't a sick appt." So if any of my friends in the area are looking for a good pediatrician - I've got one for you!
At any rate - we have had 2 really bad nights and Megan's eye has been watering and a little goopy so I was worried they would say she had pink eye or something. But no - all is well there. Her RSV is much better, but wouldn't you know it that stinker started wheezing about 2 minutes before the Dr walked in. She said that she may have a wheeze on and off for awhile. Evidently the virus clears out in 7 days but the coughing and wheezing can last 4-6 weeks. Oh my gosh! So we are back to breathing treatments a couple of times a day to hopefully get her over that (at least she not contagious so we can go to music class tomorrow). Her right ear infection was clear - there was still some fluid (but no infection).... BUT... Isn't there always a but... now she has a really bad infection in her left ear. And that developed while she was on antibiotics. Great. So now we are on a new antibiotic for the new infection. The really good side of the coin is that even with a bad ear infections she's been a happy happy baby this week (except from the hours of midnight-6am)
All that to say - hopefully she's on the mend (again). I was so sad to hear about her new ear infection and that it looked like it was really painful. But on the other hand, at least that explains our past 2 really bad nights. I was afraid she was still getting used to being back home after traveling. So there is hope for a good night of rest ahead!
