Hello everyone . This is my first post so let me start by introducing myself . My name is Angela I am 26 and I have two children I have a three and a half year old daughter and a nine month old baby boy . I think it can go without saying that I have my hands full. I am nowhere near a perfect mother in fact I am the imperfect mom hence the name of this blog. I hope that you can find some enjoyment in this as well as hope, laughter,inspiration and maybe even just a way to pass a few minutes time thank you for visiting. I will try to post blogs as often as possible and I’m going to do them on a variety of topics but mostly on parenting and also caring for ourselves . I am also going to make posts about different activities I try with the kids or maybe even come up with. Enough about the future for now lets talk about today, So today both of my kiddos are sick. We made our second (Or was it the third? I really don’t know. Lol.) Trip to the doctors office. This time however, my little girl had a temperature of 104 and of course the doctor was very mad at me. THE IMPERFECT MOM.For not giving my three year old tylenol. Well give me a break lady !Our appointment was at 9:50. We woke up around 9 watched, some Daniel tiger and took a bath and of course left the house five minutes before we had to be at the Dr. No harm came to my daughter having to have a fever for an hour. They gave her Motrin at the office. And let’s be honest, if she would not have had a fever the doctor would have just said that she was fine like they did on Friday, when she was definitely not fine. I don’t know if any of you have this problem but my children have a really great doctor the only problem is that whenever I take them in and I think they are sick the doctors always try to say they are fine and just to take them home give them Tylenol and make sure their noses are clear. This is extremely frustrating especially when I know that there is more than that. I get that the doctors don’t want to just write a prescription for antibiotics right off the bat Because they don’t want for them to be over them I totally get that . But honestly all they do is tell me to come back in 2 weeks !2 weeks! 2 weeks seriously? Let them be sick for 2 weeks then do something about it. I just don’t get it! When a child is sick and they need antibiotics they need antibiotics plain and simple there’s no way around it. Just recently I had mycoplasma pneumonia I don’t know if you all are familiar with that but it is also known as walking pneumonia but it really got me bad I must have had the flu or something and I didn’t go to the doctor. Next thing I knew I kept running a 103 degree temperatures for a few days and then I started have trouble breathing when I finally went to the hospital the doctor said that I was lucky that I went when I did otherwise I could have possibly died because both of my lungs were
filled with pneumonia. Nonetheless I got to enjoy a 3-day stay in the hospital. This was a few weeks ago. I am a pretty much recovered now. My dear husband just went to the hospital this past Wednesday and lo and behold he also had micro plasma pneumonia go figure. So when my children started to act sick I took them to the doctor on Friday and made it clear to her that the pneumonia was going through I told them it was also very contagious. But you figure that they would know this since there a doctor but whatever let’s not get into that. I am happy to report that my son is feeling better he is still coughing a little bit and you can tell he’s congested but definitely better than yesterday so that’s progress. My daughter is also doing better she is coughing less but the doctor gave her cough medicine too and she has not had a fever since this morning so I am assuming the antibiotics are working No in fact I am praying they’re working because I definitely do not want to have to watch my children suffer with pneumonia that would be awful. No mother wants to watch their children suffer with a sickness. Well I’m sure that I have not handled the situation perfectly I’m proud of myself for being there for my kids when they needed me and taking care of them the best that I could. Even if that meant feeding my daughter pretty much just popsicles today because she has no appetite at least she was fed and she ate some chicken nuggets and mac and cheese for dinner that’s good and I have been breastfeeding my son pretty much constantly all day it helps to comfort him. I’m proud of myself as a mom and I’m not going to let anybody tear me down or let me feel like I am unworthy. Each and everyone of you are good mothers everyone parents in their own way as long as you put your children first and you do whatever you can to keep them safe and happy you’re doing a good job keep it up.
