Just when we thought we were over Kelly's illness, it sprang back. Jean called me at work to check what Kelly's temperature had been this morning. It was normal, and I sent her off to school. But she got home and had a meltdown, and her fever was back. I came home early to go with them to Kelly's doctor. Turns out she has walking pneumonia. According to Dr. Hoffman, it responds well to Zithromax, which is why it beat off the effects of Amoxycillin and made a comeback. So Kelly's on Zithromax now; the regimen is three doses over three days, and then the antibiotic lingers in her body for around ten days, killing off nasty bugs. I've got my fingers vigorously crossed this time.
