Dr. Update...

Bad blogger Mama. I was sick and really stressed last week, so this is a bit late.

It was the funniest thing, when we walked into the Doctors office to see it all decorated in an African theme AND I was wearing a shirt with a zebra on it, Well AND not to mention...I was holding the REAL and cutest thing to come from Africa lately :) We all laughed. I asked Baby girl if she liked it ;P
(yes I am a bit biased LOL) All Ethiopian babes are perfect. You know I believe that :)

The train and the murals were really neat. Even the bathroom was fancy.

My son came with us, and played trains to entertain baby girl. She actually was pretty happy, until the nurse weighed her, and the dr touched her :( she weighed in at 18.6 My itty bitty girl :)

We still dont have any real answers. They ruled out the stridor, and a small trachea. Ruled out asthma. Chest xray fine. Sinus xray showed irregularities (?) so we are on nasonex and singular at night. plus a strong antibiotic to clear up a possible undiagnosed sinus infection. Dr thinks the noise is coming from the sinus area. AND since the little cutie only sleeps for 2 hrs at a time, he wants her to have a sleep study (oh fun times.) hopefully to rule out adnoid issues and any other sleep issues.
Honestly I left feeling frustrated. I dont like giving her meds on top of meds when she is so healthy otherwise and NONE of them make a difference.

I was sooooo tired this week with migraines and a bad sore throat I finally moved baby girl to her crib. She went to sleep like a champ and wakes with a smile. EVERY.2. HOURS.

Off to bed :)

I hope it all gets resolved soon. That must be very frustrating. She is so cute in her sleeping pics too! I love her doll...where did you get it?


Mandy said...

Oh Maria! That is so frustrating. I know what you mean about not wanting to give her so many medicines, especially when you can't see a difference.
She's such a doll. I'll keep praying for you guys. And I hope she starts sleeping longer soon so you can get some rest!

What a cool theme for a doctor's office! I hope everything gets cleared up soon!
