YUK!!!

Poor Mallory has caught an infection from the surgery. I was always told that you get an antibiotic with any sort of mouth surgery, but my Dr. did not prescribe her one. Her fever got as high as 102.99 Saturday morning, and she has been miserable ever since! I phoned the Dr. on-call, and thank God he prescribed her Omnicef that minute!
They are not kidding when they say that it gets worse before it gets better. This is the 6th day, and it has been our worst! I just gave Mallory her meds, so Mommy is going to try and get some rest! I will post an update tomorrow, and hopefully it will be better!

My faith had hers taken out a few months ago. She's 7 and the first couple days she was fine and then about a week after it was the worst...hope she feels better soon!

Hope she feels better soon. Us mommys hate when our babies are sick. I had mine taken out about 12 years ago. Hope it heals fast!

You must be exhausted!

Yes, Im with you on this one. When my son had his tonsils out, he went home on antibiotics! Your poor baby!

I am so sorry to hear that. I pray sweet Mallory gets well soon. We will pray for you too. I am shocked that they did not give her an antibiotic.
