My 6 year old daughter Mae has had a slight cough for nearly a month. We had taken her to the doctor then, and they said it was allergies but had turned into sinus infection. Well yesterday she started coughing really bad. I took her to the doctor this morning and they did x-ray and she has pneumonia. We caught it early, but my poor baby is coughing so bad. The doctor said if she got worse to take her to the other office (that is about an hour away) since they are open on weekends.
I know that we probably won't get anything done next week. This is the joy of HS though. At least I don't have to worry about what she will miss at school since all her lessons revolve around us!

Thanks everyone. She seems to be feeling a little better today. I told her that she can't be up much today and that she is assigned to the couch or her bed..lol.
Thankfully the cough medicine worked and we all did get some sleep last night. I gave her medicine around 9:00 and then she didn't need it again until 4:30.
She hasn't had any since she has been up and it is 10:30 here. I really hope that we caught it early enough that she won't get bad.
I am just so glad that I am not having to stress how much school she will miss since our schedule is completely flexible (just as long as she gets in 175 days!
