February 10th, 2011


Sorry that I haven't posted lately. Kinnick and Carver have both been very sick. The doctor wanted Kinnick admitted to the hospital. We managed to convince him that we could manage her just the same at home. We've been struggling since Friday to keep her oxygen saturation in the 90's. At times, I wasn't sure we were going to be able to do it. She's been on up to 2 lt of oxygen 24hr/day. We've been giving her tylenol/motrin around the clock for a fever. We finally got an antibiotic because it went to her lungs. She has pneumonia. Since she got the antibiotic and a super boost shot of Rocephin, she's doing much better. Hopefully, she'll be well by Monday. Carver has a terrible cough and sinus infection. He's been so miserable. All he wants to do is cry. I'm sure it hurts to cough. Neither are eating anything - Thank God for the G-tube, or they would both be in the hospital. Carver also got an antibiotic, so sleep may be in the near future for all of us. That would be nice :o)

There are some nasty bugs going around right now. Hope they are feeling better soon! It's awful to see your kids so miserable.

I'm so sorry the kids have been sick. It's so miserable hearing them cough and feel bad! I hope they both get well very soon... and glad you don't have to be in the hospital.

We are trying to avoid a trip ourselves. Abby has RSV and possibly pneumonia. She's miserable with high fever and now on antibiotics. yuck.

Looking forward to Spring! and Health!
