More Drama

As if having th swine flu in our house wasn't enough....

I took Alex to the doctor on Tuesday after school because she came out of school without a voice. The doctor diagnosed croup and laryngitis (sure I spelled that wrong). Ryan was diagnosed with swine flu on Wednesday morning then Wednesday evening Alex was having a hard time breathing so I took her to the ER. After several breathing treatments with little relief they admitted her. They tested her for the flu and other viruses and she had nothing. They sent us to an ENT and he did a scope and found her to have Vocal Cord Dysfunction. Basically what is happening is when she inhales insterad of her vocal cords opening they are closing. She will need spme speech therapy to retrain her vocal cords. Hoping to get into a Speech Pathologist sometime next week.

Swine Flu

Well it looks like we are not going to avoid the flu at our house-Ryan tested positive. I took him into the doctor today because he woke up running a 103 fever and seemed to be having trouble breathing. He is still on antibiotics for an ear infection that was diagnosed on Sunday. So now the rest of us are taking Tamiflu as a preventive so here's to hoping we do not get it. Ryan is supposed to stay home for 7 days, it's going to be a very long 7 days. He has started to perk up a little since his latest dose of Motrin. Here's to hoping he sleeps well tonight for both me and him!
