Amy is in such a good mood since the antibiotics have started working. The Dr was pretty useless last week and said that her ears were slightly red but the snotty nose could be teething as could the waking at night. She suggested I “keep an eye on her” for the next couple of days and if she didn’t improve then I give her the antibiotics. Great, so now in addition to being a childcare executive, a home supervisor and a wife extraordinaire, I have to be a Doctor too.
Despite keeping an eye on her (she is my child after all!) I couldn’t assess whether she was better or worse because I didn’t know what symptoms to watch out for other than ordinary babyness such as crying, grumpiness and irritability! So I gave her the antibiotics and she is much happier all round!
