31 Days of Life in a Large Family – Day 23

All the kids are getting over their sickness except Elijah. His fever just won’t stay gone. 😦

I took him to see his doctor this morning. The doctor said his throat was really red and swollen, but he had a negative strep test. He has fluid behind his eardrums, but no ear infection. His lungs sound bad, but his blood oxygen level was 99%.

The doctor said a virus wouldn’t have caused him to have a fever for this long. So, he put him on a dose of antibiotics, extended his oral steroids for 3 more days, and told me to keep doing his breathing treatments. If his fever is not gone by Friday then he has to go back to the doctor’s office.

I’m hoping that the medicine works and he feels better quick!
