Poor Baby

Hopefully, there will only be 7 more doses of antibiotics jabs to be administered on Baby C and that by Tuesday next week, the IV line can be removed from her hand. After the IV line is removed, I will have to feed antibiotics to Baby C orally and that will be another hurdle which I have to cross as Baby C will most probably need to take antibiotics orally for the next 5-7 years of her life until her kidney matures and stops growing (this will be confirmed by the pediatric nephrologist much later). Though Baby C has no problem eating paracetamol syrup, she just cannot stomach the bitter taste of the antibiotics and will puke each time she takes them. Well, whether she likes it or not, I will have to train her to swallow it for the sake of protecting her kidney.
