Miserable Monday

We took Grace into the pediatrician this morning for an ear infection and poor baby has pneumonia also. We were just at the pediatricians office on Friday for her cough, and her chest/ears were clear at that time, but she was put on a cough medicine. Throughout the weekend, she just gradually got worse. Evidently this drastic weather change has really hit alot of little ones hard. The office had already seen 4 other pneumonia cases this morning. The pediatrician put Grace on an antibiotic and we are also monitoring her oxygen saturations closely. I must brag on our big girl though, she sat there and let the doctor look in both her ears, her nose/throat and listen to her chest multiple times without fussing at all. Now the blood draws and x-rays were a different story, but who could blame the girl.

I took the picture below, after setting Grace down with some cartoons so I could call her cardiologist. I was on the phone for about 8 to 10 minutes and this is how I found her after I got off. She was absolutely worn out from all the tests this morning. If you look closely you can see the drainage coming from her ear. I am so, so thankful for the medicine and doctors we have available to us. She is now cuddled up in her bed with cozy pajamas on and fast asleep.
