I really don't know how to tell if he's having trouble breathing. I asked the pediatrician what it would look like when he was struggling and she just gave me a blank stare. No help at all.
And then there's Whitney. On Sunday she was super fussy and developed a fever in the afternoon. I'm used to my kids getting fevers when they're teething but she was so not herself I was kinda worried. I gave her some ibuprofen and she took a nap. On the ibuprofen her fever was gone and I thought she was getting better. The next day she was clingy but no fever until about 1pm. I decided to take her to the doctor to see if he could see any signs of infection but really the only obvious thing was the fever. By the time we got in to see him it was 103.8! He told me to just treat the fever for the next two days and then bring her back in if it hasn't gone away by then. Mama no likey.
Our stupid pediatricians office doesn't have any appts available for THREE WEEKS! Um, when my kid is sick what good is that appt going to do?? Does anyone have doctor that has same day appts?
