Stinky Ol' Sinuses!

Poor Emma is still having trouble with her sinuses. She had them drained back in Feb when they took out her tonsils but she is continuing to have issues with them. This morning Dr. Castillo did a face x-ray to see what was going on and sure enough, her sinuses are really compacted with fluid. So once again, another antibiotic! Every week she does an antibiotic and for about the last 3 wks it has been augmentin so we are going back to a 20 day dose of Omnicef. Then after the 2o days is up she will go in for another CT scan to see how her sinuses look at their best. I know this has got to be uncomfortable for her. It just breaks my heart and is so frustrating that she can't get better. She is snotty, coughing, low fever, and nasty poo for the past week. I know some of that has to do with her 2 year molars...her 1st molar has finally broken through and I can see it now. It is her bottom left molar. Only 3 more to go!!

So that's where we are at now. I just really want her to be completely healthy and hopefully with summer around the corner that will happen. We've got a busy weekend but I hope to post new pictures tomorrow night or Sunday.
