I took Samantha to the doctor this afternoon. She was in the health center at school last Thursday & Friday running a high fever. She came home Friday night & has had a fever all weekend. Started coughing yesterday so I thought I better take her in. We ended up going for x-rays. I took the films back up to the doctor & they confirmed what he thought, PNEUMONIA!!!! He said she has a very severe case. A small part of her right lung is collapsed & he almost put her in the hospital! He said a case like hers is usually inpatient, but he would try to treat her at home. He gave her a prescription for that & one for coughing. Told me if she still has a fever or is not doing any better by Wednesday I am supposed to call him. I feel so bad. I had no idea she was that sick. She has spent the weekend sleeping for the most part. Her fever has been as high as 104* at times. I am so glad I took her in. She is not happy about missing so much school, but that is just too bad. I just really feel bad that she is so sick & I didn't realize just how bad.
