Poor Baby Blues

when it rains, it pours. I honestly thought we were coming out of this dark, dark hole that we've been in for the last 3 weeks. The hole consisted of all five of us being sick with the flu. The achy, fever, cold chills, night sweats, sore throat, coughing till you die flu. I thought that we had finally pulled through it. But i guess that is what i get for assuming we'd get out alive! Rianne has been fevering up almost every night for the last 3 weeks. We pulled her out of school for a week and a half and thought that everything was ok. She had finally stopped fevering at night and actually got back a appetite that i haven't seen in ages. The last few nights she started fevering up again. We finally took her in to see the doctor, and guess what... my poor little baby girl has a double ear infection, with.... yup...... a strong possibility of strep throat. They didn't swab her because, not only does she have all the previous, but she also has pneumonia. So they give her a breathing treatment at the office, sends us to the hospital for chest x-rays because it seems that the breathing treatment didn't clear anything up. 5 films later and we are back at the docs office to confirm that, yes, she does have pneumonia and that she shouldn't be acting as well as she is for as severe as it is. So, 3 hours later, a trip to the pharmacy and back home again, she is on breathing treatments until this crud clears up and antibiotics for 10 days. We go back again in a few days to see if the treatments are working...... here's hoping they are.

Here's my poor baby blue choking down here breathing treatments
