Yay! So the doctor confirmed yesterday on the check-up visit that the antibiotics seems to have done the trick. The ear, nose and throat infections have all receded, the various swellings are down, her chest is open again – in other words Jessie is back to full health again!
The only minor side affects that we are still dealing with is a nasty little nappy rash brought on by the antibiotics messing with her pH balance (shame, she definitely has her mommy’s sensitive skin), as well as a slightly discoloured tongue due to her vitamins reacting with the antibiotics.
But other than that, all is A-OK, bringing the Lotter household back to 100% seeing as Chantelle is also back to normal.
Of course, I’m sure it is only a matter of time before it’s my turn :(
Anyway, we’re now in the final month of looking after Jessica at home before she gets accepted into the daycare centre, and at this point we really do have to mention just how much of a godsend Chantelle’s parents have been in terms of helping us out here, because without them I simply don’t know what we would have done.
