still sick

I have at least a half dozen posts dancing around in my mind . . . but all is on hold as my youngest is still sick. While her fever did break last week, her congestion continued and got worse. Then, she started wheezing and coughing and today decided to turn a bit blue around the lips.

Off to the pediatrician we went (after frantically searching for my keys and calling DH in a panic). The wheeze was confirmed, and a breathing treatment administered. We already have a nebulizer at home thanks to C's asthma so I just needed a smaller mask and a new prescription of albuterol. Both her ears are infected, so a prescription for antibiotics was added. Oh, and ear drops for N as it looks like he is starting an ear infection as well, but we're going to wait on antibiotics since he isn't running a fever.

The pediatrician said L probably has RSV, so we need to watch her in case it becomes pneumonia. The other thought was that this might be her first asthmatic episode. Only time will tell.

I haven't had much sleep lately, and I'm dragging. We'll miss the family symphony concert this weekend and I'm very disappointed. Keeping L home and helping her get healthy again is of the most importance, though!

Both boys have the sniffles and I'm hoping they don't turn into anything more. C's asthma is under control right now and I'd like to keep it that way.
