June 9th, 2009
I had to move Carver's T&A surgery to 7/2/09. Kinnick started getting sick on Sunday and today she was requiring 1 1/2 lt of O2. We've been giving breathing treatments every 2 hours and she's still barely maintaining sats in the low 90's. I took her to the doctor yesterday and they gave her an antibiotic. It doesn't appear to be working, yet. We've been giving motrin and tylenol - rotating every 4 hours. With this, she still maintains a 99 degree temp. So, we took her back to the doctor today - trying to avoid the hospital. They gave her a script for a steroid to take for 5 days and a powerful antibiotic shot. The shot should yield results within 6 hrs. If it doesn't and things get worse, she will have to be admitted to the hospital for IV antibiotics. Anytime she gets a cold, it goes straight to her lungs. We were so close to giving up O2 during the day. Monday was going to be the big day. She was only on 1/8 lt Sunday. I'm so bummed. We should be out of the cold season. Not sure where this came from. Please pray that all of this works and she is not admitted to the hospital.
