Ahhhh, poor babies! The kids have recently suffered a bout of illness. Ava had pneumonia just after Christmas, then Aiden was rushed to the hospital for trouble breathing...and has been there twice since. He has some sort of respiratory illness, treated with steriods in his nebulizer. Ava also had a recurrence of the raspy lungs and was put on the nebulizer. She has had 4 ear infections since Dec. The two latest being double ear infections and she has been on 5 different antibiotics. At her 6 month check up she weighed 15 lbs. 2 oz. and was 26" long. That same week, she was back and had fevers of 103 for 4 consecutive days. Finally, I left work early last Friday and took her in, that was the second diagnosed double ear infection, but he was suspicious of roseola. He told me she may get a rash and if she does her fever will break. Sure enough, Saturday morning, no more fever and little red patches everywhere on her back and belly. Poor baby. Ava is on a waiting list to see the ENT in Hershey that did Jaxon's tubes on March 10. Hopefully, we won't have too many run-ins with ear infections until then! It sucks, knowing that a week later he will schedule her for surgery and the tubes will be in place. Jaxon's have been in for a year this month, and (knock on wood) not one single ear infection since. Hurry up March 10!!!!!
