A pleading post to see if you prayer warrior sistas (and brothers) could please pray for Sophia. We found out today that she has come down with pneumonia. Please pray with us that she'll be healed quickly and protection for the rest of the family from coming down with it. Praise God with us that they found it so quickly and that she is still at home getting breathing treatments and antibiotics at this point.
Sophia has had a fever for a few days and woke up this morning with it again. She had no other real symptoms other than being pretty lethargic on Sunday afternoon where she sat on the couch and barely moved for over an hour - very strange for her. So when she wouldn't eat this morning and still had fever we called the pedi to see if we should take her in. They got her in quickly and heard some congestion in her chest which prompted an immediate visit to the diagnostic center where they took x-rays and blood work. By the time we got home, they called with the results that the x-rays proved a small infection starting in the lungs and the blood count test also came back with some concern. So back to the pedi's office we went to get an antibiotic injection. We are able to treat her with further antibiotics and breathing treatments every 4 hrs (followed by light patting on her back to try to get the mucus to break up).
This is so disheartening for us. It's RSV Season and we're hunkered down like every other family with a preemie who is still younger than 2 years old. We stay in our little cocoon at home, take walks protected in our stroller, occasionally go to the park to swing (which means I clorox wipe the swings out before they ever touch them). Still, with all of the precautions we can't protect our kids thoroughly. We know that God is taking care of them and are so thankful for His protection. It's still hard to take and feels like somehow there was something more we could've done to prevent this.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support. We'll keep you updated on how she's doing.
