Bronchitis, Sinusitis, and lingering cold's....boooo!
I'm feeling kind of bad right now, because all this junk started with me about 2 weeks ago. I somehow managed to not only infect my entire family with it, but of course, Rauly's little lungs aren't nearly as strong as mine and she got far sicker than any of us. Last night, Chad was feeling gosh-awful, so he drugged himself and crashed on the couch. Of course, that's when Rauly decided to take a turn for the worse. She woke up around 1am, attempting to wheeze, but unable to even do that...I woke up to her trying to breathe in the hallway - she was so scared and couldn't even cry. I immediately took her in to the bathroom and calmed her down - I figured the more she tried to cry, the harder it would be for her to breathe. Long story short, she quit crying, I gave her otc meds (can you tell I used to do pharmaceutical inventories? lol!)...and she slept on my chest the rest of the night...which means I got NO sleep!
The doc said her left lung was filled with fluid, she has bronchitis and sinusitis. Bless her heart! Chad just told me he thinks he has an ear infection and he's feeling miserable. Shep is also on antibiotics for sinusitis that is lingering. Sheesh luiz...when it rains it pours! Thx in advance for your prayers...we'd like to be back to normal as soon as possible. :)
