I'm going out of my mind worrying about her, but at this point it's mainly a matter of being sick and tired of her being sick and not knowing why she is getting sick so often.
Basically here is the run-down, month by month:
January- she basically had a cold every other week. Looking back on it a lot of it might have been allergy induced, but it she also had viruses. She would run fevers, and typically allergies dont cause fevers.
February- Had a bad cold, vomiting on Valentines day. It lasted for two days, then it was gone.
March- She was sick the whole last week of March with an upper respiratory infection. After 5 days, I took her to the ped and she confirmed that she she had an infection and Adaline was given a 5 day dose of Amoxicillin. I didn't resist, since I was about to go out of town, and I didn't want her to be sick.
April- tons of coughing and sneezing all month long. After an evaluation my ped says that she has allergies and suggested we try to give her local food, local honey, bee pollen, and vitamins on the regular. We were already doing most of that anyway, but added the bee pollen and upped the honey to 4 tbsp per day (its pretty much the only sugar she gets right now). She said that we would do testing next spring, but that it looks/sounds like an allergy to outside, not having to do with diet. At this point we had taken her on/off so many different things to see if it would change stuff.
End of April- she had a fever of 103 for two days and was complaining that her throat hurt. I took her to the doc, no visible problems other than her throat was "a little red". No strep.
May- She had a fever of 103 for two days and after another doc trip, it was discovered that she had a uti. DD had not complained about peeing, and had been peeing regularly. I gave her one day of antibiotics. The fever went away, and she was fine, so I stopped. (she had JUST had abx not even 6 weeks beforehand, so I was worried about too much.)
June- sneezy, coughy, but other than that , pretty ok.
July- was diagnosed with bronchitis and a slight ear infection after 3 days of a cold. Amoxicillin for 5 days. Her symptoms never went away, and after almost two days of a high fever, I took her to the ER, where she was diagnosed with pneumonia and two full blown ear infections. They said that she was a "patient fail out" for the Amoxicillin, meaning that it didnt help at all and she developed pneumonia. 10 days of another antibiotic and breathing treatments and she was better. That all ended on July 29.
Today she has had a fever of 102-103 all day long and is laying around either sleeping or just staring at me. Doesn't want to play, doesn't want to eat, etc. She's sick. Again. She's not teething, shes not complaining about it hurting when she pees, or her ears hurting. I'm sick of this. I feel like such a failure because I cant keep her healthy.
