Well here it is tuesday, hes still been screaming randomly & not eatn or sleepn much so we called his Dr n they said bring him n. [btw hes 10weeks] dr looked n his mouth and was like O No! Thats not thrush, he showed me the back of my sons throat, he has 2really big ulcer like blisters! He said they were like fever blisters, only in the throat!! How n the world could that Dr miss that?! My poor baby has been suffering this whole time & we've been thinking it was one thing when it was much worse!

  • And this was at a children's hopsital ER? I'd be filing a complaint!

  • no it was just at a regular hospital ER, but dang when you have a infant screaming bloody murder for hours & NOONE checked on us at all! We saw in a closet size room for about 4hours with him screaming n not one person checked on us
