Ella has a sinus infection

Ella woke up on Tuesday morning with a fever…not too high, but it was a fever.  The only other symptom that she had was a stuffy nose, but she’s had a stuffy nose since Thanksgiving weekend.  She stayed home from school on Tuesday and was just hanging around and resting all day.  Her low fever continued.  Same thing for Wednesday.  Today, I took her to the doctor.  Everything checked out fine – he didn’t think it was the flu, but he said that he thought it was a sinus infection.  This means that Ella has to be on amoxicillin twice a day for the next 10 days.  Ella told me that she wanted bubble gum flavored medicine.  I told her that it was going to be a liquid that she had to drink and that maybe she would want another flavor, but she insisted on bubble gum.  I should have never listened to her.  It took an hour of screaming (both Ella and me) to get her to take it.  Sunny finally mixed it in with chocolate ice cream and chocolate syrup.  What a nightmare.  19 more times to go!  I just want Ella to feel better.
