So Sydney has been rather unlucky in the health department. She was born with jaundice, which the doctor failed to treat effectively so she spent the first week of life recieving heel pricks. Then she was treated for thrush. Two months and three medicines later we learned it was just fat deposits from breastmilk. So we're now on to pediatrician No. 3 and things were starting to look up...until September came.
Sydney went to the doctor September 15 and we found out she had an ear infection in both ears. We gave her amoxicillin like it was going out of style, but on October 4 we went back and she had an infection in her left ear. So we moved on to medication No. 2. Then we went back on November 4 and she has an ear infection in her right ear. Now she is on Augmentin, but the doctor upped the dosage, so hopefully we can get over the infection for good this time.
She's such a sweet girl, so it is so hard to see her sad and in pain. Her dad has been helping out a lot more too, but it is still hard for her.
So third illness, third doctor, third ear infection...hopefully the old saying is true.
