This year for spring break we decided to stay home and do fun things around town, including hanging out with our great friends from Weslaco. On Saturday before spring break started we went to Meg's 6th Birthday Party at Bouncin' Around and had a great time. Landrie had been really grumpy all day, except at the party but I thought no big deal. So that night Landrie spent the night with her Nana Banana and the next morning about 10 Sharon called me and said Landrie was running fever and had a cough. Of course she would be getting sick, we were about to be off for a week for fun and time with our good friends from Weslaco. So I took her to Care United here in Forney on Sunday and they said it sounded like croup and that she also was getting an ear infection. Poor thing, they tested her for both flu and rsv, that was awful, she knows what those sticks are for and immediately starts crying when she sees those sticks come out. So we got together with Myra and Jayda while the guys were out fishing and the girls played great. We planned a full day of shopping for Monday since Landrie seemed better and her illness wasn't too serious. Bad choice, once we got to one of my favorite places... Sam Moon, you could tell she didn't feel good, she was whiny and just really sleepy and coughing still when the other times she has had croup she only coughed at night, not during the day. Plus, her fever kept returning every 3-4 hours which doesn't happen when she has croup either. So we didn't shop for too long and we went home and had them over for dinner and let the girls play at our house again. On Tuesday when Landrie wasn't better we decided to go see our regular pediatrician, our beloved Dr. Chinn, who pretty quickly figured out that Landrie had bronchitis, it explains the deep cough, fever, fatigue, length of illness, all of it. So more medicine to get filled, but within a day or 2 she did feel better and I was able to snap some pics of her that are below, she still didn't feel 100% but a lot better. We also went to Six Flags on Friday, but unfortunately I started to feel bad Thursday night but I just brushed it off as allergies. Well I kept ignoring it all weekend and felt worse each day so I went to the doctor finally on Monday and yep, I had bronchitis too! This month is going to wind up being one expensive month for co-pays and prescriptions. Hopefully next year's spring break will be much better!!!
