One Sick Girl & Her First Antibiotics

Well, I'm happy to say that we made it 3 years and 3 months without having to use antibiotics for our big, little girl!  Not bad I think.  Olivia told us yesterday that her right ear hurt.  On top of that, her eyes were discharging yellow and green goobers/mucus.  We cleaned them often but after 30min or so, the goobers/mucus always came back.  Olivia was unconsolable for a couple of hours and kept crying on and off, saying to me at one point: "I chann eifach nit ufhoere/I just can't stop!"  When I asked her what it was she couldn't stop, she told me: "Bruele/to cry."  Poor thing.  

We figured it would be best to see our beloved Dr. Dawood today.  Normally, the waiting time to get in to see her is a few days, but we lucked out getting an appointment today.  My sister from this blog helped us out by coming with us, which made life a heck of a lot easier!  Oh, and we gave the Sarah-Mobil another spin, taking it to the Doctor's so thanks to Sarah!

To make a long story short, Dr. Dawood got me to look Olivia's right ear after she checked it out and it was really red.  So, Olivia is on antibiotics (APO-AMOXI) three times a day for the next 7 days.  In fact, she is begging me for them right now, as her antibiotics are banana flavoured - figures!  

Not sure if it's really a good idea, having banana flavoured medicine - Olivia is having way too much fun with it already!  Any thoughts on that one?
