Back to the doctor

Brooklyn stopped eating and stopped wetting her diapers today.

Her cough still sounded horrible too, so I took her back to the doctor.

Thank goodness I went with my mommy instincts because the doctor said she has pneumonia. Poor baby. They gave her a breathing treatment of albuterol with the nebulizer for 20 minutes, which wasn't fun. She was screaming and kept pulling the mask off her face. (I couldn't blame her really). I basically had to hold her down the whole time, while Jake was restless and kept asking for snacks. Thankfully, he left to watch TV in the waiting room and that helped a little. Then, they gave her a shot of rocephin.

We have to continue giving Brooklyn the breathing treatments every 4 hours for 3-4 days and start another round of medication on Saturday. She has to come back to the doctor's tomorrow for another shot just to see if we can get rid of this pneumonia in her lungs.

Please keep her in your prayers.
