So much for an easy month of August. I thought things were crazy last week. But then this weekend the shit really hittith the fan.
My six year old daughter, Lily had a stuffy nose and cough for the last few days. Friday night she woke up and said she couldn't sleep cause she was coughing so much. She slept in our bed but was up quite a bit.
Saturday she woke up pale and tired, complaining of a pain in her throat and stomache and she ended up throwing up breakfast. We called the doctor and he came to see her and ordered us to go get x-rays right away, thinking it might be pneumonia.
The x rays came up empty and thank God a pediatrician caught us on our way out and said we should take her to a different hospital quickly (the one we were at didn't have a pediatrics wing). So off we went to the emergency room at a bigger hospital. And its a good thing we did. Because when we arrived, Lily had a sever asthma attack. Blue lips, pale vacant eyes, and so much trouble breathing she couldn't even speak even while on oxygen. It was SO scary.
She was admitted to the hospital and I ended up staying there with her Saterday night and into Sunday afternoon. They woke her every three hours for nebulizer treatment so she didn't get a lot of rest. We arrived home yesterday and now she's in our bed playing hospital (I have to bring her every meal on a tray and say 'bonjour petite dame' when I enter)
She's got an appointment Thursday with an allergy specialist. We just might have to find a new home for the newly acquired Grizzly if it turns out she's allergic to cats but the attack could have been brought on by the virus as well. Guess we'll see!
I'll do my best to visit you guys this week. I miss my dose of daily bloffee.
