My five year old is sick.
She's had a nasty, wet cough for over a week.
A fever on and off.
But yesterday she didn't eat much and then threw up at 5am.
So, I called our ever trusty pediatrician, Dr. Brooks.
A Medicinal Saint in my book.
And I'm not even Catholic.
We got right in to see him this morning.
Her Co2 was a bit low.
He heard a bit of crackling and "wetness" in her lungs, upper airway.
Beats cancer, though.
Zoe was 5 when she was diagnosed with cancer, so 5 makes me apprehensive.
I know it's irrational.
But anytime one of my kids gets a rash or a fever or a cough or a headache or a bruise, something in me internally cries "no, no, no."
So for me, bronchitis seems okay...
