Pneumonia & Pink Eye

The ever so sick child.
Thursday, January 21, 2010 Alexa started
showing signs of not feeling being she
refused to eat all day and didn't drink much.
Friday, January 22, 2010
In the middle of the night Alexa woke with a fever.
This fever continued thru Monday when we went to
the doctors. We were told a viral infection. Along with
the fever, she has a horrible cough and
very bad runny nose.

Viral Infection
22 lbs 7 oz.
(In case you have forgotten, we were at the
Doctors back on January 2, 2010 with a
viral infection and she weighed 22 lbs 8 oz.)
Thursday, January 28, 2010
Another trip to the doctors because Alexa still has
the fever, horrible cough, and nose running
like a faucet...since last Friday.
This time she weighed 22 lbs 5 oz. Since Sunday
she has started to eat dinner but still no breakfast
or lunch. Again we were told probably a very
bad viral infection but if she still had a fever
tomorrow then we would need to go for
a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia.
Friday, January 29, 2010
Sure enough, Alexa STILL has a fever, horrible cough,
and runny nose. So it is off for a chest x-ray.
After reviewing her chest x-rays, we were told she
has two pockets of fluid on her lungs. Both are in
the exact same spot on both films. We were told she
has Pnemonia and they would start her
on Omnicef to begin treating it.
To add to the mix, Alexa also started showing
signs of Pink Eye...which she caught from Ayla.

Now it is Sunday night and although her fevers are
gone during the day, she is still having them at night.
So, a phone call to the doctors once again tomorrow.
