We're at it again

If you recall, at the end of March we were doing breathing treatments for 3 little girls with pneumonia. It is now the beginning/middle of May and we're back to the breathing treatments for 2/3 of the small people in our family. What is the deal with this???

Everyone except me and Dave's mom got sick while we were in Florida. Nora, then Dave, then Ryann, then Dave's dad, then Georgia. It has been this annoying, lingering cold that no one can seem to completely shake. Dave said last night that it doesn't seem to get any better - but it doesn't seem to get any worse. We had one or two bad days/nights with Nora, but she has been coping pretty well. It started at the end of the week with Ryann and Georgia so we figured we would let it run its course like it did with Nora. Yesterday morning I had had enough. Ryann was such a miserable soul - not miserable like she was sick (other than a constant runny nose, you'd never know she was sick - and if you know Ryann, you know that a runny nose is not an unusual occurance for her), miserable like she was so crabby and unbearably mommy-dependent that I just couldn't take it any more. I took them to the doctor last night and the results are in:

Ryann - lungs are not clear, needs breathing treatments every 4 hours
- One ear in fection, needs two antibiotics
Georgia - lungs are not clear, but not as bad as Ryann's, needs breathing treatments 2-3 times each day
- two ear infections, needs one antibiotic
Nora - lungs are clear, needs no medication

So we're back at it. I'm very excited about this. I will post a description of our visit to the doctor later this morning... it was fun.
