Breathing Issue Update

We got a call from Allison's pediatrician this morning to come in for a follow up to her ER visit the other night. It turns out that after reviewing the x-rays she has early stages of pneumonia. We are so glad we took her in the night we did, because if the pneumonia had developed further it would be life threatening for Alli. It would have been easy to miss because overall Allison's health seems fine - just the one breathing struggle incident. It is uncertain what caused the pneumonia since she has not been ill, but any irritation to her fragile lungs can trigger it. She is now on an antibiotic which should clear things up fairly quickly, but this just shows us how careful we will need to be with the upcoming flu season.
