I took the kids to the doctor on Friday for checkups. Both have allergies. The doctor prescribed Nasonex spray, Zyrtec and Claritin.
Mikaela was running a low grade fever so he added an antibiotic for her but said to wait and see if she got worse. She was fine until Sunday. She came home from visiting her dad and had a high fever. She had been vomiting and wasnt feeling well. So I got the Z Pack filled.
Shes got a horrible cough. She sounds like a dog barking. I kept her home from school Mon and Tues. I took her back to the doctor yesterday. Now she has croup. So he gave her Tylenol w/ codeine so she can get some sleep and a steroid for the inflammation in her chest. He instructed me to give her breathing treatments as well. He said she wasnt contagious and was fine to return to school. Just not let her go to PE or recess because running around and getting hot makes her cough more.
She was just fine this morning so I sent her to school but had to go get her around lunch. She was running a fever, vomiting and had diarrhea. Her teacher said she coughing non stop.
So I guess she has a few days off.
