    Her cold took a turn for the worse when she couldn't breathe well yesterday (she was breathing heavily and you could see her ribs, and she was wheezing). So we took her to urgent care. She is a little trooper with her breathing treatments and meds. She still isn't eating, and is very whiny, but I guess that is par for the course.

    This is her first real illness (first time on antibiotics and prescription meds), so we ALMOST made it to two.

    To those who have done this before, my heart goes out to you. I didn't realize how heartbreaking it could be to watch your little one in such discomfort!

    Now what are the odds that Ben will get it?

    DS Evan has had pneumonia twice this year. It's terrible isn't it? The first time it was with a common cold but this time it was a complication of RSV. The meds seem to make it better within 48 hours. But it's not fun up until that point. DS Grant never did develop pneumonia but my BIL and DH both got it. So start taking you vitamins yourself so you don't get it. In a couple days she will be back to her old self. It is pretty scary at first though.

    Poor little girl! I hope she gets better soon!~

    Josh had his first bout with pneu at 13 months (March 06). It was so scary seeing him so sick [​IMG] But like the other PP said, the massive antibiotics they gave him at ER and I continued 4xs a day at home, helped him improve dramatically within 48 hours [​IMG] But then he got his 2nd case on Thanksgiving Day another ER trip out of State. Again pumped him full of rx and motrin and tylenol. At that point, a recheck with his ped back at home, she noticed he was wheezing ever so slightly. So he is now on nebulizer with pulmacort and albertol when he gets the mucously chesty cold.

    Now Zach did NOT get it back in March. But he DID get in November which REALLLY suprised us as pneu is not contagious per say. It is just how ones body reacts to the cold/bacteria/virus.

    Anyways, hang in there! I hope your other twink does not get it too [​IMG]

    Poor thing. I hope she gets better very quick. [​IMG] It's hard to say if Ben will get it... sometimes mine share illnesses and sometimes they don't.

    Oh Kate, I hope Hannah feels better soon and Ben escapes the trauma. My 3 yr. old had pneumonia in January and the girls didn't get it at all.

    Take care,

    How is she doing?

    Joshua had pneumonia about 6 weeks ago and was in the hospital for IV abx. Noah never got it, but he was sick with a cold. It was hard to have one in the hospital and one at home sick . . .

    I hope all is better soon!

    Poor Hannah. [​IMG] My Emma had pneumonia back in January, and I recently got out of the hospital myself after 5 days in for pneumonia, and it is not fun. Out of the 6 of us, Emma and I were the only ones who got it, so I hope that Ben doesn't get it either.

    I hope she is feeling better soon.

    She is doing better, but HATES her medication and breathing treatments with a passion. If any of you have any tips, I'd love to hear them.

    Carol, it is a treat to see you back here. You have been missed by many. I am so sorry to hear that you too were hospitalized. We were really lucky that it was a mild case in comparison to yours!

    Oh Kate, I'm so glad to hear she is feeling better. I wish I had some tips for you for the breathing treatment. My kids are only now just getting used to doing them. (Ryan does neb treatments for breathing issues on a pretty regular basis). The only consolation is it's actually very good for them to scream their heads off and cry like there is no tomorrow while they are doing them, because it opens up their lungs and gets those meds in nice and deep so they do their job nice and quick. What did help a little was for me to get an extra mask that they could play around with while I had the one on their face during the treatments. I also sat them down to watch one of their favorite shows on TV or tape, but they still cried. [​IMG]

    Thanks so much for the nice words. I've missed everyone around here more than I can ever put into words! [​IMG]

    Hang in there, I hope this passes quickly.
