That's right folks, Big O has the Big P. We are bummed for her, and despite feeling rotten she can't understand why she is stuck inside and can't go outside and play with Zack and her Bouncy House.  Doctor's Orders are to keep her quiet until we can take her back on Friday to have her lungs checked.  I took her to see Dr. S this morning, after a lengthy listen to her lungs we did a breathing treatment and then set out across the street to Chesterfield Imaging for a few Chest X-Rays. I knew it didn't sound good when she mentioned she wanted to get a few films of her chest after the second listen to her chest and back, but part of me still thought there was no way she was Pneumonia sick...little did I know. Her fever is down for the most part, and while she is at least talking today she is still her sick self, very quiet and clingy.  I changed her diaper for the first time at like 2:30 (Mom of the Year I know, but she had been sleeping) and it was dry, that isn't a good sign, so I thought for sure by offering her juice that would take care of the dehydration risk, turns out she feels so bad juice isn't even cutting it...

She fell asleep on the way home and managed to take a 3 hour nap, making up for the fact that she didn't rest well last night either, I was up several times with her, getting her a drink, having full blown conversations, etc.

Lets hope we see some improvement over the next 24-48 hours so that we don't have to entertain a hospital stay, that sure wouldn't be fun considering I am scheduled to board a plane to Boston at 11:22am on Friday.
