Update on My Little Piper Joe!
Well, for any of you that may be curious, here’s the update on my daughter:
We took her back this evening and once again explained the situation to the doctor. At first she said we should wait a little longer for the Zyrtec to kick in, but after a little pleading she decided to go ahead and do a chest x-ray.
I’m so glad she ended up doing this because Piper does have walking pneumonia and bronchitis! If you’re not familiar with walking pneumonia, it’s similar to regular pneumonia, but you’re more likely to be able to move around during the day… which is exactly what she was doing.
The doctor prescribed us with Zithromax. She took her first dose tonight and I’m happy to report she’s already asleep! Hopefully she’ll be able to sleep comfortably throughout the night.
I also wanted to thank you all for the kind words and great advice! Lots of you had mentioned putting Vicks on her feet. Well, guess what she has on her little feet right now?:) Hey, that may be doing the trick more then the Zithromax!
Thanks again and here’s to a good night sleep!
