Sickness Strikes Again!

Well it has been 2 weeks since Libby was last sick so it's time for a new illness. This child gets sick so often it's crazy. People keep saying it will help build her immune system later on. Well, she should never get sick again. This time she was throwing up for 7 days in a row. I finally convinced the doctor to see her after the daycare said we weren't allowed to bring her back until we have a written note saying she wasn't contagious. The doctor needed that versus me calling almost every day saying their recommendations aren't working. In any case, when I took her I told them she had been having troubles breathing and has been wheezing a little. Now we have to use an inhaler on her. She gets 2 puffs 3 times a day for 3 days, then 2 times for 2 days and then 1 time for 1 day. We're on day 2 of this process and Libby takes it like a champ. We have to use a mask on her in order to get her to breath the medicine in. She doesn't really scream but looks at you like you are insane. What a trooper! The good news is she hasn't gotten sick since Tuesday. =)
