Penny update

Husband here...

Well, the new stuff the GI prescribed Thursday did NOT work so well. After a weekend of not eating and occasional puking, plus some labored breathing, fever, and dry diapers, Penny's spending today with Mommy going on a round of doctor visits. Right now they're at the hospital, getting her some blood work and a chest x-ray to check for pneumonia...or something.

A visit to MGH's pediatric GI/ENT team for a second opinion is in the works.

Meanwhile, I can't even help Wife deal with it all because I'm stuck in Delaware for a meeting that probably isn't happening.

Expect more updates as we get new info.

---UPDATE---
Wife says I was worrying you all for no good reason--sorry about that. No pneumonia, no dehydration, no infections...everything's fine. As fine as last week, anyway.

Oh, I'm sorry this is happening to that sweet little girl. Here's hoping Penny get's the medication she needs today and NO pneumonia.

Poor little Penny - Take this worth a grain of salt but perhaps you should talk to someone besides a GI person? I just hope there is someway to find out what is going on. She seems to happy, but the whole eating/puking/difficult breathing issue has to stop! She is so sweet too!

Yikes. What a scare. Sounds like Mommy, Esq. needs a night out. Oh wait! She's getting one ;) See ya tonight :)
