Here is how our week has gone....
Monday & Tuesday=Daycare
Tuesday night Mia started sounding stuffed up and woke with a mild temp. We kept her home from daycare and sent her into KUW, while there the nurses said when Mia was sleeping she had a cough that sounded like Croup & we should just keep the Tylenol going to keep her temps down.
Wednesday night I heard what sounded like a rooster with something stuck in their throat crowing from the upstairs bedroom....Mia was sitting up in her crib crying and crowing. Her fever was up and once again we gave Tylenol and she went back to sleep.
Thursday morning it was off to KUW again but midday Mia's temp spiked up to 105.3 and she wasn't sounding any better so off to the ER we went. (I of course left work immediately...partner understood still not quite sure my Battalion Chief did but he said ok.... (me) ummm yea I'm leaving) You all know I'm a Paramedic BUT when it's my child everything is waaaaaaaaaay different, your child I can be comfortable with treating---- MY child NOT SO MUCH.
Diagnosis: Tonsillitis with mild Croup
Treatment: Antibiotics and steroids.
Today, Mia woke with no temp :) and Gordon just called, he is up at KUW having lunch with Mia who just happens to be running around the place like she is on crack. Guess she is feeling better :)
Even with a temp of 105.3 yesterday this child of ours is still a happy girl...maybe a little grumpy but I would be at the least grumpy.
Here are a few photos to catch you up on our Mia.
Some strange pose she now does when I follow her with a camera
