Pookie is sick
Since Christmas Pookie has had a cough. It has come and gone, so I didn't think much of it. Last weekend she got really congested and was obviously sick. I took her to the doctor on Monday and have been back 2 more times this week. Basically she had a cold, it turned into a lung infection and now she has all the symptoms of asthma. The doctor assured me she doesn't actually have asthma. She doesn't seem that much better, but I am hopeful that over the weekend she improves and we don't have to go back. Apparently a few years ago they would of hospitalized her for a week or two but now they get the parents to do the treatments at home. That kind of scared me. She has to do breathing treatments... which I really don't like. I just feel really upset about the whole thing. Apparently breastfeeding doesn't make you immune to everything.
