Jaylee

It's been an exhausting 2 1/2 weeks at our house and three doctor visits later. Yesterday I took Jaylee back to the doctor for the third time because she has had a really nasty cough and her breathing treaments havent seemed to help. The doctor listened to her and said it sounded like she had pneumonia but he also wanted to test her for whooping cough. So off we went, first to a lab where they did some tests on her blood and then to EVDI to have xrays on her lungs. About 20 minutes after we left the imaging place the doctor called and said that Jaylee does have pneumonia (not whooping cough). He perscibed her a mixture of 200mg of Amoxicillin & 200mg of Augmentin and she has to continue with her Pulmicort and Albuterol breathing treatments. She sounds terrible but she still has a smile on her face.

Darn I hope she gets better. Landon has an appointment with a ear, nose @ throat specialist on the 26th of this month and he thinks Landon will still have the croup and that 3 weeks away which means he will have had croup for almost 2 mo. Hopefully they find what they need to so that he doesn't get more sick down the road. I'm glad Jaylee didn't have anything too serious.

I'm glad she is doing better today. I hate it when these little ones are sick. You just feel helpless. They'll all be better soon.

Hope she feels better soon. Sophie also got pneumonia when she was little.
