Our Little Loveday has had a cough and snotty nose for months now. She has seen the doctor about it twice, but each time we were told that she probably had a common cold or general germiness from being in nursery school. It has been going on long enough that decided to take her again last week.
The doctor thought she might have a staph infection so he took a swab of her snot (yummy!). I just got a call back and the doctor said that it wasn't a staph infection. He did say, however, that she has a "bacterial infection in the nose" but that it is "nothing to worry about". He called in a prescription for an antibiotic for me to pick up (for free, of course, since she is under 18). While I'm looking forward to her snotty nose clearing up, I'm mostly looking forward to getting rid of her cough! I'm sure Charlie would be looking forward to it too if she were verbal. Maybe next year.
