Back to the Doctor

Last night was the best night Rachel/we've had in days. She didn't cough at all in the night. But when she woke up she had dried crusty drainage from her right ear. And later complained her left ear hurt. So, I took her to see Dr Berry.

While the ear that had the crusty drainage was not infected, the ear she did complain about hurting, was infected. Therefore she is on antibiotics. Her lungs are still clear. And unfortunately because she's not eaten very much in four days, she is down almost 3 pounds just since Friday. That's a lot on a little girlie her size.

Her demeanor and attitude is good. She's still definitely on the mend and heading in the right direction. Which is all good. Here's hoping and praying she keeps going that way.

I hope she's feeling better soon. Wow, three pounds is a lot to drop so fast. I'll be praying for her (and you!).
