Ready for spring
Ella's illness has been upgraded from the flu to the flu and pneumonia. We were back at the doctor today, in the middle of our snowstorm. She was wheezing a bit and they wanted to see her, and sure enough she's got pneumonia. They gave her some antibiotics which will hopefully bring her back to life in the next 24-48 hours, but said the flu symptoms might hang on for 5-7 days. Ugh! I have to call Drew's doctor tomorrow to see if they want to treat him prophylacticly. Pneumonia is a bad thing for someone with CF to get. He doesn't have any signs or symptoms of getting sick, but I'm pretty sure that the reality of life with 3 kids is that when 1 gets sick, they all get sick. Hopefully we dodge this bullet, fingers crossed. I really just need some fresh spring air and the ability to open my windows and air out this germ filled house. Soon enough.
