Gracie has been up and down with her sinuses this entire year. She’s had a harder time the past couple of months. Each time she has trouble with them, it can lead to asthma problems for her. It’s been a battle. We’ve been on numerous oral antibiotics just since school started this year.
Right now, we are taking IV antibiotics twice a day. They are wearing her out, she’s just exhausted. She’s asleep right at 7:30 at night and cries when I wake her up in the morning. She doesn’t cry easily, it takes A LOT to make her cry. I’ve sent her to school crying the past 2 days. It’s just heartbreaking. I kept her home today because she is so tired. She’s already back in bed and asleep. This medicine is just doing her in. I’m not one to let Gracie just “skip” school, so this is hard for me. It was a tough decision to keep her home. We missed Church Sunday because she was so tired.
I did call the DR on Monday to see if this was normal and he said it was a strong antibiotic and it would cause fatigue. I’m calling back today because this MOMMA BEAR thinks something else is going on. I’m just so worried about her.
If these antibiotics don’t work, she will have to have sinus surgery. I pray that they will work. I don’t want her to have to go thru surgery, but honestly, I don’t want her to have to go thru surgery after all of this. It’s been rather traumatic for her (and me). Life with Gracie is never “uneventful”.
Please say a little prayer for her, I sure would appreciate it.
