The Doctor Well, we went to the doctor today. I really do like our ped, Dr. Mercer. Real nice guy. Unfortunately, he didn't have all the answers we were hoping he would have. He did refer us to a pulminologist (spelling?) though. He also xrayed Mackenzie again and found that the sinus infection had not gone away (after 20 days on meds, you'd think it would have wiped it out). So, he prescribed another antibiotic for another 10 days. More meds...yuck! She has been doing 2 breathing treatments a day plus "mac daddy" cough medicine at night with Singular. I think all those meds has really effected her behavior. I know, the sister addition plays into that to, but she is just not herself and I think the meds are causing some of the change. I am taking her off everything (except the new antibiotic) until we see the specialist. Hopefully that will help. We also have another decision to make: school or no school. Mackenzie loves her school and teachers. The doctor said it would be helpful to not have her around other kids until we can get through this. I want her to get better (and stay that way) and be able to kiss, hug, hold her sister, snuggle in bed with us, and breathe on everyone. That is more important, guess I've made up my mind, but it will be hard on her and don't want that now. I just love this little girl so so much! Jeff took her to the zoo today and they had a really good time. At least there are bright spots along the way.
She wanted her picture taken so we went outside and she busted out with a few supermodel poses. This is one of my favorites-
