We went to the doctor today. It wasn't our normal doctor, the doctor who had Saturday sick kids clinic. I was told this is a sick clinic diarrhea should have been scheduled during the week. Yeah and I work during the week, I only get 10 sick days per school year and when they are gone I loose pay.
At first they couldn't find her file.( New office & new doctor) . I gave the doctor the history and she wanted to know what pharmacy gave her Cipro. Our previous doctor prescribed Cipro for her ear infection in June. New doctor said that is for adults and she should not have had it. Good news her ears were fine. Doctor said her temperature is not a fever until it is over 100 degrees.
She had a poop diaper before we left home so I put it in a ziplock bag took it to the doctor office. The doctor said she didn't want to see it.
That we would need to use a plastic urine collection bag for a stool sample. It is hard to gather a good sample from a diaper if it is runny.
She said the celiac test was very expensive and wanted to rule out a virus/bug before doing all these other tests.
Doctor suggested soy milk for a week and see if that helps. So now my little girl has this plastic bag stuck to her butt waiting for a bm.
I have been giving her probiotics twice a week. Doctor said I should give Culturelle daily. I do give her a daily vitamin- The Gummy vitamins.
Thanks for your suggestions. I think the doctor just wanted to go home before noon and not bother with us.
