I should have been a Dr.

It only took a week for me to convince the Dr. that what she had was not a viral infection. She ran a 106 temp for 5 days. By Monday night she was having trouble breathing and coughed with almost every breath. Her left side and shoulder hurt when she moved and breathed. SOOOOOOO I took her right back in. We sat there for another 2and half hours before the Dr. called her back. In that time her temp kept going up. Even with the Tylenol I gave her and the Motrin they gave her when we got there. Her blood ox was good so they were going to say viral AGAIN. The poor thing was miserable. My thinking is kids with a stomach virus that bad don't eat pizza!!! This time it only took 5 min to convince the Dr. to do ex rays and sure enough I was right. The poor baby has had Pnuemonia the whole time. I was so mad, (still am) she was so sick and all of it could have been avoided with 5 min worth of picture time. Why don't they ever listen to the parents? She is actually sound asleep in this pic and crying. It was very very sad to see.

I hate doctors. But I'm glad they finally listened.

Don't you just want to scream sometimes when you know what's wrong with your baby, yet you have to convince the doctor that doesn't care if you come or go!

Poor baby! I hope she's feeling better!
