Pitiful isn't it? Bless her heart...Hope has struggled with a little runny nose for three weeks or so. She has been on Amoxicillin for ten days, but her cough has steadily gotten worse. I was baffled because she was on an antibiotic, so I took her to the doctor yesterday.
I knew when they checked her weight that maybe she was sicker than she appeared. In ten days she had lost 8 ounces. Then when the dr. listened to her, she found that there was junk in her right lung and she diagnosed her with bronchitis. Great. We were sent home with a zpack and breathing treatments.
She did great until about 10:00 last night when I noticed that she got clammy and started doing a lot of belly breathing. I called the oncall service and she told me to do another breathing treatment and try to nurse her to sleep. She eventually settled down and we got some sleep.
She already looks so better this morning. Kyle unfortunately has to miss another day of school because he spiked a fever around dinner time last night. So at this point all three are on antibiotics, all three are on breathing treatments, and we are so thankful that God has given us the grace to make it through this LLLOOONNNGGG week:)
BTW, in the picture did you notice that we had to write Hope's name on her mask because we cannot keep them all straight now:)
