So... DD has pneumonia... again...
Bloody hell its been a long and exhausting few weeks. No hospital admission this time luckily, just a/b's, puffers (new ones, higher dose) and throat swap to rule out other nasties and a chest x-ray which was a delightful shade of white patches...
Back to the Dr tonight or tomorrow morning to have another check.
She is still coughing her lungs up but responded really well and really fast to her medication. I think they will extend her a/b's for another course though, depends how her chest sounds I guess but she still sounds as bad as she did last week, cough wise but she isnt breathing as hard now. Still a bit lethargic though, would much prefer to laze about watching tv than play.
Her mood is much improved and she finally slept ALL NIGHT last night first time in about 2 weeks!! She is starting to get her appetite back which is great, I hate it when she wont eat.
28 weeks today I think Im prepared for baby, well I dont think I'm un-prepared. I would cope in other words with what we have at home without any more prep so that makes me feel good. I really cant be bothered doing much right now!
Bit concerned about DD's health over the next few months.
Its not even winter yet and she has pneumonia. What is winter going to actually be like... what are we doing wrong????
Nothing... its just her crappy lungs... thanks genetics.
