I have 2 very sweet children. But they are both really under the weather. Coop’s fever from 10 days ago has gone, but it stayed long enough to create the perfect storm in Mini’s little system. After a few days of high fever for her, combined with a bad cough, trouble sleeping and labored breathing, my Mommy’s intuition told me I might have a case of pnuemonia on my hands. The Doctor confirmed my fear this morning. Sweet girl has a bad case of pnuemonia and is ‘very contagious’. So, this finally beautiful, warm weather finds us stuck inside. In theory…I’d feel bad for Coop….being stuck inside..but he has a little something to deal with as well. The rash he developed on Tuesday…well…it spread and spread….so it turned out to be good for him to visit the Dr. as well. I was worried it was an off-shoot of his recent virus..but apparently, it is eczema. With what little knowledge I possess of the condition, I thought it was a bit localized, but apparently it spreads easily and will continue to do so if you don’t stop it. So….I am developing a whole new routine to help my little guy. And, tonight, I have a date eith WebMD to learn more about this condition. Dr. says it is allergy based, but I can’t, for the life of me, figure out what triggered the start/spreading. But, clearly, something did.
So…it is the end of June..we are confined to our home until Delaney’s fever is gone + 24 hours….hopefully, I can get Coop’s poor skin under control! And hopefully, Coop doesn’t get the ‘very contagious’ pneumonia!
