Through out the day, the coughing got worse and the irritability was rising in addition to the temperatures. We pulled out the Tylenol and humidifier and played the game of ups and downs all night. Saturday we thought things were on a good run. They didn't seem as bad but their temps were still up and down.
When Sunday rolled around, Hope was coughing but didn't have a fever. Savannah was completely out of it though. Her cough was to the point of gagging and throwing up and I couldn't get her fever to break. It was stuck at 103.8. I called the on-call nurse on base and they told me to head to the ER. This girl was so tough. She laid there and followed all the directions they gave her.
She did such a good job she got Ninja Turtle stickers! A picture had to be taken to send to Daddy because they're all about TURTLE POWER!!!
I have never seen Savannah so calm and out of it. She was pricked, swabbed, prodded, and whatever else they had to do to figure out what was wrong. In the end, they decided she had bilateral pneumonia. Not a fun thing to go through.
Mike ended up bring Hope up to the ER too because she was supposedly getting worse. I'm glad he did too. They diagnosed her with RSV and bronchiolitis. They gave her some medicine and said she would just need some rest. Thank goodness!
We're home now and I can't be more happy. I'm ready for all this to be over and for my family, all 5 of us, to be healthy again. Ellie is starting to show signs of the same thing. Coughing, runny nose, congestion. I'm just praying she doesn't have to go to the hospital.
Thank you for all the prayers.
