Pneumonia

Aah, life is never boring.

Adam came down with a horrible cough, and after a couple days, he went to Urgent Care and got a chest x-ray and it was determined that he had pneumonia. He got a prescription for antibiotics and cough syrup. It was helping a little, but not much. After a couple more days, he made a trip to the ER. They nebulized him and gave him a prescription for a different antibiotic and an inhaler. Again, it helped a little, but he was still coughing pretty bad. So, fast forward to yesterday, Adam made another trip to Urgent Care and he STILL has pneumonia. They gave him another prescription for antibiotics, so I think he is finally starting to feel better now. Phew.

On Sunday, Ally started coughing pretty bad, so on Monday, we took her into the doctor, she got a chest x-ray and strep test. Strep test was negative and the chest x-ray showed a little bit of pneumonia. Dang! So, she's on antibiotics right now (which she loves so much, not!) and today she seems to not be coughing as much, and her nose isn't as stuffed up. She seems to get well pretty quickly, which I'm extremely thankful for.

So, as you can see, our life has been filled w/ pneumonia activities for the past 3 weeks or so. I am just hoping I don't come down with anything. Adam calls me a "freak of nature" cuz I never get sick, or if I do it's not for more than a couple days. I told him that at least one of us has to be healthy.

Hope everyone is staying healthy out there and stay warm please!!! What is this -15ยบ business???
