A few years ago, Lizzy started getting sick a lot. I noticed a pattern to it, where she would run a temperature and then be fine after she was on antibiotics. But as soon as the medicine was all used up after 10 days, she would start getting sick again. She was seeing a pediatrician through all of it. We ended up going to an ear, nose and throat and an allergist. They both could not find a thing and we decided to get a second opinion, once again nothing.
At some point the pediatrician brought in another parent, and tried to have this other mother, tell me how much her child was sick and was at the doctor almost monthly. I remember at one point, Michael even questioned me. I knew something was wrong, I just knew. There was a pattern and I saw it and even though they couldn’t figure it out, I knew something wasn’t right.
When Aubrey was a baby, from the very beginning she constantly had ear infections. I began to know her symptoms and knew once again, she has another one. Most of the time I was right and she eventually had hearing loss and had to get her tonsils out and we thought she may need ear tubes. Since her surgery, she was just like any other kid.
This was completely different, Lizzy was never sick. Not until this started happening. Anyway, I remember questioning myself, I’m not really sure but I remember talking to either my sister Debbie or Michael’s sister Barb and explaining the pattern and me asking am I crazy or something. It was really even causing Lizzy to miss so much school too.
Well I finally decided to go back to the ear, nose and throat, that did Aubrey’s surgery. Within 10 minutes, he found the problem, she had holes in her tonsils. Food would get stuck in there and then it would start an infection. Tonsils out, back to a normal kid, sick once in a while with colds, and flu. Moms always know! Sometimes we have an intuition about things, or people, that can’t be explained. I really believe sometimes we just know, what we know.
