DD ill again--it's not fair

DD has just got over a horrible stomach bug which turned into a temporary lactose intolerance. I stopped all dairy products, she was fine for a few days--and now has suspected UTI. sad
She has been ill all weekend with high fever, has stopped eating, is hardly samiling, has been doing a LOT of crying and just wants to cling like a sad little monkey baby. GP's given me antibiotics but I sort of want to wait until the UTI is confirmed, as it could just be a virus, in which case she will be taking antibiotics for no good reason...

Oh Arabica, poor dd and poor you sad.

If you do give the antibiotics, you can give her that powder stuff (mixed in yogurt or whatever) which offsets the worst effects - can't remember for the life of me what it is called but they have it in the health food section of FResh and Wild - tis expensive though. Probiotic something or other I think.

Thanks 6-spot. Yes I have some (expensive) acidophilus left over from the last infection which needed ABs. I suppose it's particularly depressing because she spent her last winter being ill with one thing after another, and lost her appetite.

Oh yes, that's the stuff.

It is very depressing when they are ill, isn't it. DS3 was very poorly at the beginning of the summer holidays and as a result stopped eating the only "proper" cooked meal he would have (pasta with ham, vegetables and sauce).

Sorry to hear about DD. Poor her and poor you. Hope she gets better soon!

Thanks. She has had a few spoonfuls of soup, but she's still very droopy. Let's hope the ABs do some good.
