My oldest dd (6 yrs) has been sick this weekend. Just looked like a head cold. Low grade fever, no green snot, stuffy nose sore throat kind of stuff. This morning she woke up feeling better. Fever is gone. About 6 pm she started complaining her ear hurt. I gave her Motrin and she went to bed a few hours later. Then she woke up crying and it hurt real bad. I cleaned it with a qtip (did not shove it in, just barely put it in and was gentle) and it was bleeding. Called the dr and followed their instructions for relieving the pain. She is sleeping comfortably now.
Now the problem. I need to take her to the dr tomorrow and i know she will need meds. I have literally no money until Thursday when we get paid (dh and I both had health issues that required hospitilization at the beginning of the year so we are drowning in medical debt along with still dealing with debt caused by my ex husband- long story that isn't relevant). I know the dr will let me pay him when I get paid. But cvs will not extend the same courtesy. (Duh).
Does your pedi carry samples of antibiotics in his/her office? I'm praying that it is a common practice for most pedis.
