2 sick girls

Kenley has been sick since last Thursday. She was getting chest Xrays Friday night, in attempts to diagnose possible pneumonia. While the wet read was negative, her horrible cough has been persistent, as has her fever and diarrhea.

This morning, after she threw up on me (from coughing so much), I had to take a “stool sample” which isn’t fun when the child is “sick”.. okay, enough detail there.

When we went to the pediatrician office for the 3rd time in 3 days, big sister Britton wanted her temperature taken as well. When Nurse Leslie took it said looked and me surprised and said, “mom, Britton has a higher fever than Kenley!”. Good gracious.

The doc said the Kenley sounded worse than she did on Friday, ordered samples to test for simanella, roto virus, etc. and sent us home with an antibiotic prescription and diet restrictions. Fun times.

So both kids are home with possible pneumonia, possible parasite (will know in 1 week), fever, coughs, through up.

We had to cancel our sitter tonight- although we did sneak out last night to celebrate Big Daddy’s 32nd birthday.

They stayed in the PJ’s all day- just got bland rice for dinner, baths, and are now watching Sound of Music- my favorite.
