Kaitlen's Dr's appt

Kaitlen coughed all night long so today I took her to the Dr's and after listening to her chest she said she had wheezing and pneumonia. She gave her 4 puffs from an inhaler to get rid of the wheezing and listened again and yep pneumonia. It is in her bottom rt lobe and a little in her bottom lt lobe. She is on strong antibiotics and albuterol and hopefully this works. She had pneumonia 4 yrs ago and it took 2 antibiotics and 2 months for her to get over it. Oh. walmart was out of the inhalers so i have to go back tomorrow to get hers. We have some from when abbie and matthew had RSV.
Oh, and twice a day i have to cup my hand and pat her back where the pneumonia is to help loosen it up.
