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?
