It has been one month since Emma was sick and in the hospital last....and, guess what! Yes, you guessed it....she is sick again! I should be thankful because this is truly the longest we have gone in 6 months without being on antibiotics (it is usually every 2 wks), and I am thankful that we are not in the hospital....yet! However, I find myself feeling so sad for Emma. How fun is it to be sick SO much? I look at her today and she just looks miserable. She has a 103 degree fever (on Motrin), she's coughing, runny nose, and she just wants to sleep, sleep, sleep...but not drink or eat. I realize that children get sick...but, wow! This is a lot! I got spoiled last winter. She stayed healthy all winter...until March. It seems as if she has been sick ever since March.

Then, I stop and I AM thankful because Mr. Liver is HAPPY!! So, that is good. We take the good, we take the bad, we take them both, and there you have the facts of life:) (can you tell that I am sleep deprived also???)) UGH! Anyway, if Mr. Liver is happy then Denver is happy, so they will NOT want to see us in person....THAT is a great thing!!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Ours was GREAT! Emma did not really start to get sick until yesterday. So, yesterday I took her to our Urgent Care, and they put her on Zithromax. She has had 2 doses today...and she is WORSE!!! Does that make any sense?? NO!!

Well, enough of my gripe session for one day! Thanks for "listening" I feel so much better! Now, I'll just pray that Em feels better soon too!!

Oh, by the way, I changed my options on my Blog so that EVERYONE can post comments, post away...I would LOVE To hear from you!!

Sorry to hear that miss Emma is sick! It is SO HARD to have your kiddo be sick - you do lose sleep and end up getting sick yourself. Don't let that happen!
Lily was in and out of the hospital every other week last winter. She was in for a week up until Thanksgiving eve, then again until Christmas eve. She has been sick for the past week or so however, it seems to lag on because she still has a few gunkies sitting in her throat that she needs to clear (Sorry if that's TMI!)
I will pray that Miss Emma gets better soon and is happy and playing again!

Zithromax Prescription Information said...

My name is Wesley Brown and i would like to show you my personal experience with Zithromax.

I am 45 years old. Have been on Zithromax for 2 days now. I took this drug (generic azithro 500 mg bid) to get rid of an 2+ week old sinus infection that did not clear with decongestants and antihistamines. The drug made a substantial difference within 2 days. I'm a physician and needed to return to work, and the tiredness was just excessive, so I stopped the drug after 48-72 hours. The infection did not return. I would take this drug again if I needed to kill off an infection. I don't expect to feel good all the time. If a drug is making me healthy in a particular way, it's up to me to weigh that benefit against the cost of side effects.

I have experienced some of these side effects -
Fatigue. I just didn't want to move or get out of bed while on the drug; it was a bit hard to figure out that this was an effect of the medication rather than the sinusitis. Otherwise I was fine.

I hope this information will be useful to others,
Wesley Brown
