Hospitalization # 3 for Miss Sophia

As usual, it started with cold symptoms last Wednesday. By Saturday morning she was whiny and clingy. By Saturday afternoon she was wheezy and then the retractions started Saturday night. I followed her asthma action plan to a "T", but we couldn't get it under control at home. At the advise of the nurse on our hotline, I took her in and 2 hours later she was admitted. It took 5 nebulizers of DOUBLE albuteral to get her lungs working properly.

This time was not nearly as scary as the first, and much easier than the 2nd hospitaliztion. Just by luck, we have her allergy/pulmology appt tomorrow, so we'll see what he has to say.

I kept her home from daycare yesterday, but did take her with me to run a few errands. She did seem better when we were "out in the world" so I opted to take her back to daycare today. I arrived to the notice that another child at the Center has contracted the Molluscum Contagiosum virus. According to the CDC this is very common, although the Director of her Center has not seen this in her 15 years of owning a daycare. Fabulous.

Honestly, I just wanted to scoop Sophie up and take her back home, but a few deep breaths later, I calmly left. Please GOD let her not get this virus. That.is.all.I.need.!

Another Sophie funny...I called her Miss Sophia last night. Her response? "My not Sophia, my Shoshie!"
