Daniel was diagnosed this morning with pneumonia and chest xrays confirmed it. He had been coughing recently but the pediatrician thought it was allergies and we tried allergy medications first. Since that wasn't working, we had a very long morning at the doctors office. I picked him up from day care yesterday afternoon with a 101.5 fever. We made it through the night, but this morning went staright to the pediatrician. They gave him two very large antibiotic shots that really hurt and they said his legs may be sore a while. He cried and cried and held onto me for the longest time. Normally he bounces right back after a shot and will even laugh when I tell him all done. Not this time. I felt so bad for him. They also did a nebulizer treatment while we were there and we had to pick up a nebulizer machine on the way home to help him get the medicine he needs to open his airways. We have to help him breathe with the nebulizer every 4 to 6 hours and we go back tomorrow at noon for the doctor to listen to his lungs again. If they don't sound any better it will be another round of the shots. If he does sound better they can start an oral antibiotic which would make me very happy.
At any rate, please pray he heals quickly - thank you.
