She doesn't look sick at all does she? Well she only has a cold but she is major congested and miserable with she tries to sleep. Which every mommy knows what that means right? Mommy is exhausted!!!
But i don't mind being exhausted at all i just really want Ava to feel better. She is such a happy baby no matter what she is feeling. Sometime that scares me because i feel like its a guessing game on what is major and what is not. She acts about the same no matter what. Granted she has not had a very serious problem to date. And we pray that she never does. but she acts just as happy with a double ear infection as she does with a common cold. So i worry that i may miss something. Which makes me want to run her to the doctor everytime she coughs or has a 100.1 fever!
But i also will call my mom so she can talk me down when i feel like a doctor visit is necessary. But today is day 4 of her being congested and coughing and her decongestant is not making things better she also has nose spray and that does not seem to be working. We have sat in the bathroom with the hot shower running and steam everywhere and that was not working.
So this morning after night 3 on the chair with her in the living room and three times up that night, i decided it was time to call the nurse and see what she said about it all.
They normally don't want me to come in if i don't feel it is nessesary or they feel it is vital that they see me. Well i called and explained to her everything and how what i had was not working and that i needed some answers. she told me that if the over the counter things were not working that maybe it was time to have her checked to see if there was something more to her cold.
So at 11 this morning we headed to the doctor and we did not wait at all. I loved it! we did not get to see her doctor today we saw a lady doctor and she was wonderful she did patty cake with ava and she loved it. Well after listening to her heart and chest and in her ears and mouth and so on. She decided that it was just major common cold and what i was doing needed to stay the same just up the dosage of everything because she now weighs more than she did last time she had this so she requires more.
We left with the answer that she will get over it and that it is not serious and is not in her chest just her head and nose. She is ok to fly when we leave this weekend to go see Des family in Memphis for Lesa's birthday(Mother In Law) So we will up the dose and pray that she will get over it fast!
