3 More Weeks

Lucy started getting a runny nose on Monday but I didn't really think anything of it. Her allergies can act up sometimes and it's no big deal.

It has actually turned into the worst cold/sickness she has ever had. Fever, inability to breath through her nose, coughing, complaints of itchy ears and eyes, no appetite and sleeplessness. I called her pulmonologist and she is on vacation. I spoke to another CF specialist in the same office and he prescribed her another antibiotic to be taken twice a day for 3 weeks.

Poor Lucy was just taken off antibiotics a week ago and I thought all was healed but it has come back with a vengeance. I told the doc to NOT put her on Augmentin because of the horrible side effects it has on her little body. She is now taking Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim suspension AKA Bactrim.

To top it all off, because she was itchy, she has cross-contaminated her fluids and gave herself pink eye! Her right eye is watery, goopy, itchy and swollen. We are going to the doctor right now to get some drops for that.

I just want Lucy to get better soon so that she (and I) can get a full night sleep and finish off the summer with a bang! The county fair is coming soon and it will be the first time she gets to ride the fair rides! I hate to see my Lucy suffer. Summer colds are the worst.
