A long week...

After multiple trips to the doctor and after hours phone calls too plus a huge gusher of a bloody nose that thankfully happened in the doctor's office (love that timing) and a chest x-ray this morning, we now know that Shortcake has pneumonia.

Poor dear got a double shot of antibiotics in the legs today. I think I'd like a double shot of something a little stronger, thank you very much! Here's to a weekend of better health!

  4. So sorry to hear that! I'll keep praying for her, and you! (I had my own share of pneumonia patients last winter) At least now with the diagnosis you know what you're dealing with and how best to care for her. Encourage fluids and lots of rest rest rest. Hope things start to get better soon!

  7. Darn! I'm so sorry she had to go through that, and mama, too. But, now she can focus on getting better and has the meds to do so. Hang in there!

  8. So glad you have an answer. Im up at 2am checking my own 10yo pneumonia patient...my dd was diagnosed Thurs night. I'll be sure to pray for your fatigue and her recovery. I chuckled to see your post while I'm sitting in the dark of her room listening to her labored breathing and scrolling through my feed reader. You sound like you've had a rough patch, and I so hope your whole household has peace and better health in the coming week. Hope you get your 2 shots of something good soon! God Bless.

  10. This must be pneumonia season. It started with me 3 weeks ago as bronchitis and 5 days later was pneumonia. I'm having a heck of a time kicking it. Off to bed to get some rest. I'll be praying for your little one to heal quickly!
