Thankfully Christmas was great. Everyone felt okay but not 100%. Fisher finished her antibiotics last Monday for her pneumonia. She still had a nasty cough all week and started having multiple nasty dirty diapers a day (like 5-10) when we’re used to maybe one a day if that! So I called the pediatrician and we went in Thursday to see what was going on.
Sure enough they wanted to do another chest X-ray and see what was going on in there. The doctor confirmed that her pneumonia was worse than before and was now in both lungs! 😩 They decided to put her on a different antibiotic for another 10 days, then reevaluate her again. They also did a viral swab to send off to see if she had any viruses. The doctor also said it was time we do another swallow study to see why she’s aspirating.
So another 10 days of antibiotics (we’re down 4 days already and no improvement) then talk with GI and Feeding Therapy about the swallow study.
Please pray our Fisher girl starts to feel better soon. The last couple days have been extremely hard and she’s been miserable/in pain/not sleeping/crying/screaming. I just need our girl feeling better soon, so prayers are greatly appreciated!!
Here are some pictures of our sweet girl from Thursday-today.. obviously lots of short naps on mom 😊
