It's been so nice to have Brianna home this past week but also a bit nerve-racking as well. She came home feeling pretty good but within a few days went down-hill quick. The congestion returned and her breathing became labored. We were a bit worried to say the least. On Sunday we were torn between taking her to the Emergency Room or waiting until Monday to see her pediatrician. Because she seemed to be holding her own, we waited until Monday and took her to the pediatrician only to find out he was on vacation. So we made a decision on our own and that was to withhold one of the prescriptions she was sent home with from the hospital. Our thought was that one of them was affecting her. We were correct. The steroid nose spray was causing (at least this is what we think) aggravation of her sinues and causing severe swelling and congestion. By Tuesday afternoon/evening, the Brianna we know, was coming back. Oh, I can't tell you the relief.
Check out her new photo. She was enjoying "reading" her book with her best friend, Chrissy.
