About two weeks ago I posted and told you about how Hailey was sick with pneumonia. Since then I’ve had some emails from people wanting to know how she was doing. First of all- thank you so much for caring enough to email me and ask how Hailey is feeling. That meant a lot to me!!
Anyhoo- a couple of days after starting her antibiotic Hailey was acting a whole lot better. We were still dealing with some throwing up and diarrhea… I’m not sure if it was still the stomach bug or if her antibiotic was bothering her stomach. But, by the weekend Hailey was pretty much back to her normal self. I took her back last Wednesday for a re-check and her lungs sounded perfect. Thank you so much for your prayers!!
Then last Friday Hailey started coughing again, had a stuffy nose and little rash. I waited until Saturday to make sure the rash wasn’t just a skin irritation (she has very sensitive skin) and the rash was still there, so I took her back to the doctor. The doctor said the rash is part of a virus and is nothing to be worried about. Hailey’s lungs still sounded nice and clear but the doctor wants us to keep using the nebulizer treatments.
As of today- the rash is just about gone and doesn’t seem to bother Hailey at all. Her stuffy nose is gone. The cough is still here. In fact last night she woke up around 10:30 pm coughing. When I brought her a drink she smiled at me and said, “I am so hyper Mommy.” She didn’t go back to sleep until 2:15 am. Why can’t they make a nebulizer treatment that doesn’t make her hyper?
So- thanks again for praying that Hailey’s pneumonia would clear up. Please keep her in your prayers that this cough goes away and doesn’t turn into pneumonia again. And also- pray that she sleeps!
