Pneumonia strikes again

Pin It My sweet Olivia has pneumonia now, just like her two brothers. We went to the doctor today and now she is supposed to take medicine through a nebulizer (mask that goes over her nose and mouth and sort of steams medication so it is breathed in easier) four times per day.
Guess how much she loves the nebulizer?


She screams and screams and we literally have to hold her down to administer it.

It truly sucks. But I really hope it helps her get better fast. After all we are leaving for our trip in 3 sleeps. And of course the lovely nebulizer machine will be coming with us. Fun. (sarcasm dripping liberally)
The boys have started to get better (YAYAYAYAYAYYY!!!) and I think I am starting to feel a bit better too. So if we can just convince Olivia not to spit out her prescription and sit still for her mask we'll be good to go!

In other news my dear friends Becky and Cecile took me out for my birthday lunch today. I love them. They are truly wonderful friends. Yep.

:( I can imagine she isn't too happy at the moment. My Katie had RSV & the flu at the same time when she was about 2 months old. She had to use the nubalizer for breathing treatments. At least at that age she couldn't fight with us about it.

Bless your heart..

My oldest son had to use a nebulizer the first two years of his life. The only way we got him to enjoy it was to tell him to pretend he was a dragon and suck in the smoke so he would have some to blow back out. Lame huh? It worked though!

Praying your sweet one is better soon!
