Well, if anyone has been wondering where I’ve been, we have a little baby at home with tonsillitis. This diagnosis comes only AFTER taking to instacare on Monday morning –only to pay $50.00 for a quick strep culture, and a general cold diagnosis (ignoring her 104˚ temperature). …This is completely asinine, and believe me, there is an ugly complaint sitting on the manager’s voicemail right now.

So we hit our Dr. office the next day after Mia's fever wasn't going to go anywhere (mind you, we've been doing baths throughout the night trying to keep her temperature in check). The doctor asked me if instacare even looked at her throat... So, we have our tonsillitis diagnosis, we have our Augmenton drugs and hopefully we'll have a healthier baby sooner rather than later.

Poor Mia! At least she still has a smile on her cute little face. I'll keep her in my prayers (you, too). xoxo

Ugh. I'm so sorry. Sometimes doctor's offices drive me nuts--how they can ONLY do something about the symptoms, and if you (or the child) isn't showing anything at the moment, they won't do anything. Something has to be giving her tonsillitis, and just because it's not strep, doesn't mean she doesn't need antibiotics. What a big pain. I hope she's feeing better!

So sad! Sweet girl was even trying to be sweet while she was sick. I remember the days and days in the doctor's office in Panguitch, especially with Sarah and Dave. Only to be told nothing is wrong and finding "ear infections" only a few days later. What does a mother know? and to top it all Sarah suffered for YEARS due to multiple misdiagnosis. UGH!!!
