Danique has a bacteria (2)

Monday 16-Apr-2012: Danique went off to school as usual. Unfortunately things weren’t going as expected. Around 4 PM Ton received a phone call from the day care, that Danique felt weak and was in pain (ear). Things had turned around as we felt that she was doing better in the morning than expected. We decided to visit our family doctor as quickly as possible, he had indicated a week ago that if the situation would change we had to contact him. After he checked her ear (broken cornea) he decided to give her a more heavy antibiotic (syrup) and ear drops to clean her ear from bacteria. The program will have to be followed for 10 days. Danique can still attend school but is not allowed to take swimming lessons for the time being. We need to see our family doctor again on Friday 27-Apr-2012. We hope Danique will recover soon as she’s been running around with this whole situation for almost 6 weeks now. If in 10 days the situation hasn’t improved for Danique, our family doctor will send Danique to hospital for some more specialized research.

Sunday 15-Apr-2012: Although still in pain on her left ear Danique was doing okay. We kept treating her with a mild pain killer and all looked well to let her go to school on Monday.

Saturday 14-Apr-2012: The past week off antibiotics went very good for Danique. The coughing seemed to have disappeared. But today she slowly started coughing again. This morning she woke up with some pain in her ear, which she already started to complain about yesterday. But today the pain seemed to increase and we treated her with a pain killer (special kind for kids). In the afternoon we visited grandma Ensink for her birthday and here is were Danique went into a lot of pain and repeatedly asked us to give her the pain killer. Apparently the cornea in her left ear was broken, which we found  out on Monday when visiting our family doctor (again).
