Down with Pneumonia

Every year I made sure that my daughter gets her influenza shots but I wished there was another vaccine to prevent little people from catching cold and coughs. She was sicked since December. She gets better and turn around catch another germs and get sick again. We have been a regular visitors to the Peds clinic .Doctor confirmed Isabella had Pneumonia. There is infections on both lungs. She is currently on strong meds . Albuterol vials every 2 hours for the last 2 days, steroids pill and antibiotic. It is really hard for young children to get sick that sometimes, I wished it was me and not her. She lost appetite and of course she's down a little weight .

So, I made a decision to pull her out off school temporarily for a whole month. I know she is missing a lot of her friends but hopefully she is going to build her immunity this time. I am loving it ....staying at home with my daughter doing a lot of stuff. I think she is enjoying mommy's company , too! It doesn't happen very often.

Today the weather is very nice. Sunshine and cool breeze. We went walking outside all the way to the mail box. We visited Angel and Bingo ( the horses ) along the way . They kinda did not pay attention to us . Maybe because we did not bring any apples and carrot for them to munch on. Zake and Racoon ( the dogs ) joined us walking . Then we stop by at the pond and enjoyed just throwing rocks in the water. Oh boy! I felt like a little kid again.

We had so much fun today and she really felt better. Less coughing ! thank God.
