Mommy Intuition

I am SO thankful for the Mommy intuition!

I KNEW something was NOT right with The Princess for DAYS now. I kept hearing how she must be getting her molars.

I really had a feeling it was MORE. And, it turns out, I was RIGHT!

After dropping The Princess off at daycare this morning and her FLIPPING because I was leaving, which is SO not like her, I decided to make her a doctor appointment. I picked her up from daycare early, thinking it was just another ear infection. Drove our 30 minutes to the doctor.

Ears are FINE. I mentioned her acid reflux and how I switched her back to the medicine we tried last year, but this forgetful mommy kept forgetting to give her on time. (20 minutes before dinner). I wondered if the dosing was still right since it was written almost a year ago. Dosing was fine. The doc agreed that The Princess' mood COULD be from that flaring up, BUT we tested for strep anyway, just in case.

The doctor came back in and was as shocked as I was, POSITIVE! The Princess JUST had strep 3 WEEKS ago! Since she is allergic to the typical meds they would prescribe for strep, we had to put her on a STRONG dose of Zythromax. I am wondering if it did not kill the strep the first time and it never went away? Or she just caught it again since she goes to daycare and The Superhero goes to preschool.

So, another round of antibiotics. And she is staying home tomorrow from daycare.

I also took The Superhero in to get his throat checked, just in case, and he was negative!

So, I just want to say I am SO thankful for Mommy Intuition! Hopefully now my little girl can start to feel better and sleep better!

Maternal instinct is our God given gift as mothers. Listen to it. NEVER allow your instinct to be underestimated, questioned, or blown off.

You are A MOTHER. Hear you ROAR!
