Jujubee came down with pneumonia over the weekend. I have no idea how she got it, although I think I may have messed her up homeopathically which had some affect on this. But, at the same time, I did the best I could, and I do think her cold was different than usual from the start. Regardless, she coughed and coughed and coughed fior two days straight, had a fever that seemed to spike now and then, and really acted sick. I now know that those are the symptoms of pneumonia.
We got to see a pediatrician (the top one in the practice! Thank you, God!) on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. He listened carefully to her lungs, while Jujubee took very nice deep breaths for him, and after he said she had pneumonia, he said, “On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 meaning you’re in the hospital, her pneumonia is about a 3.” That made me feel a little bit better.
The antiobiotics that he put her on are making a big difference. Her cough is no longer continuous, and her cough has become looser, too. I can tell she’s feeling more like herself, although all the coughing certainly did wear her down. But tonight, Tuesday night, she went to sleep with no coughing at all. What a change from the previous 4 nights! I’m looking forward to sleeping well and uninterruptedly tonight, and I hope she does, too. I am SO tired.
