The croup monster is back.. A bit earlier this year but its back.
pharmacist said kids under 6 can't have cough syrup anymore?! Did you know that?
Thankfully GP agreed to see us this arvo because There's no more cough syrup in the house & when the dose wears off shell be back to non stop coughing wheezing crying poor thing.
& I know there are children/parents worse off out there & I try to remind myself of that but DD just can't catch a break.
ENT clinic informed us the waiting list is YEARS long! Going to find a remote hospital & fly there or pay for her procedures up front (she has chronic glue ear, reoccurring sinus infections, hay fever & reoccurring croup)
She's not on our health insurance but I am calling them today to add her but still 12mnth wait to claim for her which works out to be a little cheaper then paying upfront for the procedures so I am thinking well skip the waiting period & just pay. She needs it done yesterday.
I HATE that she is on antibiotics all the time, she can't seem to fight infections off. She is only 3 but where's the immunity?
Last year she had croup 5 times, first time took 2 courses of antibiotics to fight off, year before she had it 3 times.
She has a vaporiser & mum suggested liquid ventalin (she doesnt have asthma)
& me.. I work 2 jobs and run my own business & all I want to do is be there for her but self employed = no work = no $.
She got her first Pead app this week.. $340!! Ouch
We need a lotto win. Thanks.
