My kiddo
« on: April 06, 2015, 05:42:03 AM »
I just got home from spending a few hours in the emergency room (A&I) with DD.  She has bronchitis that seems to be trying to turn into pneumonia.  They gave her antibiotics, Tessalon, and an inhaler and send her home, so she should be okay, but she really did not need this.  She can't breathe if she stretches out flat in bed, and she's coughing up nasty stuff, and she feels like absolute crap.

So please pray/send good thoughts/whatever for her to get over this as quickly as possible.

Thanks!

Of course. Poor love. If you can get oil of Eucalyptus, put a few drops in a basin of steaming water, get her to lean over the basin with a towel over her head and inhale the steam that should help. So speaks a chronic asthmatic

Absolutely, DR! I hope she feels better soon.

Do you have a comfy rocker-recliner, like a Lazy-Boy or a Barcalounger?  Put her in it and find the angle that is most comfortable for her.

She has some kind of steam treatment thing she uses in the shower sometimes, and yes, there's a recliner she can rest in.

Thank you all.  :)

So late in the season. Sending warm thoughts that she will be able to breath easier soon.

My thoughts go out to DD to hope she feels much better soon.

Yeah, it's odd to get this sort of infection in spring.

Thank you again.  :)

Poor kiddo! And poor you. Neither one of you needs this. Sending good wishes for her feeling better post haste. Coughing that hard is physically exhausting, too. I also recommend breathing in the steam. It brings at least temporary relief. Hope she feels better soon!

Update:  After a couple of doses of antibiotics and the Tessalon and the inhaler, she is starting to feel better, but very tired (understandably, coughing that much will do that to ya).

BTW, Tessalon is a cough suppressant in a sort of capsule form.

Thanks for holding her up.  :)

And now I'm getting the crud.  Joy.

Kiddo is feeling better, but she's very tired still (and who wouldn't be?).  They gave her some cough syrup with codeine that seems to be calming the cough.

But I woke up this morning with a sore throat and a productive cough.  Yay.  /sarcasm

I called my doctor's office as soon as they opened and got an appointment at 8:30 this morning; my nurse practitioner said to treat it as viral (aka treat symptoms) unless it doesn't go away in about a week or gets worse, so I'm sipping orange juice and taking Tylenol and cough medicine.  (I can't use the codeine cough syrup because I'm allergic to the whole codeine family.)

So please continue to lift up DD and add me to the list.

Thanks, y'all.

That's not fair at all, DR!  Hoping you feel better very soon, and DD stays on the mend.

Oh dear! I hope you both feel better soon, and I will keep up the prayer support.

Darn... DR!  Mothers are supposed to be immune to their children's illnesses. Tell that viral bug to go away.
I hope you fell better soon.
