Katie has been sick for a couple of weeks now. First, she started out with just a little sneezing which I attributed to all of the oak pollen in the air around here. Then after about a week, she started to develop a cough, too. Then she started alternating between a stuffy nose and a runny nose. Then she developed a low grade fever and a rattling noise in her chest when she would get up from sleeping.
So this morning, I called the doctor and took her in to be seen. Her regular doctor was not in the office today because it is Good Friday and he is a devout Catholic. So, we had to see the doctor that I don't like to see because she usually tells me that there is nothing wrong with my kids and then I have to go back to see Dr. Bob after a few days and the girls are even worse.
But this time was different. After hearing about what has been going on, and giving Katie a thorough examination, she determined that Katie has developed a case of walking pneumonia. She gave Katie a prescription for antibiotics, and hopefully she'll be just fine in a few days.
I'm expecting Katie to be feeling much better by Easter Sunday, so she should have a great time hunting for eggs.
