Up In the Night
Jie Jie has gotten up at night on her own only twice in the 17 months that I've had her. The first time was the night before we were supposed to leave for China. The second time was tonight. Can you guess the reason? Yep, another infection.
I have antibiotics on hand, thanfully, but, after our last Kaiser ER experience, I honestly don't know if I could have made myself take her there again. My neighbor told me I should go out to a different Kaiser in a richer nearby city, but they don't have full pediatric there so I don't know what would happen, possibly a transfer back to my own area.
I hate my so-called insurance. My child has not gotten the care she needs from them. It's a terrible thing for a mother to have to live with.
