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.

Oh my goodness! I don't know if swine flu is worse, but seriously, praying for God's healing in your house!
