Tucker started acting sick last night...and sure enough all during the night as well. Fever and clingy, don't put me down, don't even think about getting out of my sight--feel like crap clingy. So, I took him into my doctor (Mercy didn't have any appointments and I was not going to sit in ER and catch anything else) and sure enough red ears and red throat, water goopy eyes and green nose. Man.....the doc I saw today even said "Why don't they put him on a small dose of maintenance antibiotics until you get the tonsil surgery done". Same darn question I have been asking....the answer, they don't want him to get used to and immune to the antibiotics. I understand this however, we are talking a two week time frame at the most of a low dose.
SO, if you dont like what one says, call another clinic. I will put a call into our ENT tomorrow and see if he wants to do just that. We will be on this ammox for 7-10 days as it is, so why not extend it so we can get the surgery....right ? RIGHT. Sometimes it doesn't take a PHD to figure something out.
