Long day today for easy child/difficult child. She has not been feeling well for about 9 or 10 days. I had called the doctor the other day but the nurse said to wait a few days and see if she started feeling better. She seemed to be getting worse so I took her into urgent care this morning and they said she was dehydrated and did a chest x-ray. They tried to get her started on an iv but were unable to and after 5 tries (they poked her 5 times) they sent us to the E.R. Turns out she has rolly (sp?) veins and that was making it very difficult to get the iv in. They did get it in and the x-ray showed pneumonia. She is now on antibiotics and at home. Hopefully she will start feeling better soon. Hindsight being 20/20 I wish I had taken her in earlier last week. She lost at least 8 pounds and is down to 102 pounds right now which for her is o.k. but I hope she doesn't lose anymore. She really hasn't been eating much at all or even drinking liquids (thus the dehydration) due to how lousy she has been feeling.
