Little Man has pneumonia. He had it 6 weeks ago. He has it again. Thank goodness for mama’s instinct though. Just like 6 weeks ago when he didn’t seem that bad, I knew something just wasn’t right. So I convinced the doctor that he had to be seen immediately, even though he didn’t look so bad. Even though he seemed relatively happy and playful. I knew this was more than a cold.
Moral of the story? New moms, and moms who doubt themselves (though don’t we all?): trust yourself. Trust your instinct. You know your kids better than their pediatrician does.
