I am really annoyed and I am not even sure WHY exactly. Jenna has been sick for about a week now. Started out as just your basic Spring cold. Runny nose, cough, no big deal right? Well apparently for a small girl with a compromised immune system it is a HUGE deal. She sounds and looks like crud. Her fevers are running anywhere from 101-103. She isn't hungry. She is EXHAUSTED. Falling asleep in strange places at strange times. *sigh* Finally broke down and called the doctors office this morning. Got her in right away...not much they can do :-( It's a viral infection that just needs to run it's course. I guess I KNEW this already and that is why I waited so long to call. She is being put on an antibiotic just to be sure all bases are covered but it isn't likely to help.
Also...over the last few days her eyes have been bothering her. GRRRRRR! Photophobia, rubbing them alot, saying they hurt, blurred vision. Is it the cold causing this? Is the Uveitis back? WHAT DO I DO?? I feel so lost and confused in all this. So I finally decide after today's doctor appointment to call Dr. Pirone and schedule an appointment to check her eyes. Ready for this? May 6th...yeah...2 weeks away. Seriously?? I want her seen NOW. I guess I am just frustrated. I don't know. What am I missing? Is there something more I should be doing for her?
