So we continued fighting through the weekend with our horrible respiratory stuff that we really should have gotten seen for. Yesterday we were starting to feel somewhat better, but we were both (Michael and I) still having competitions on who could hack up a lung first. My biggest problem was and still is, I cough and nothing wants to come up, even though there is stuff that needs to come up.
Then Allisyn started coughing. We KNEW there was no way she could go through what we had been enduring. So we made a trip to urgent care. She was acting fine and was all excited to be out and around people. Poor thing hasn't really been out of the house since last Monday night. So the doctor listened to her chest and wanted to get a chest x-ray. He said that she sounded like she had fluid on her lungs, but the x-ray was only showing it in her bronchial tubes. He thought the x-ray was behind? I didn't know they could be. So he ended up treating her for pneumonia. Not that big of a deal in the way of medicine, just a baby Z-Pack and some cough syrup. He said it was a good thing we brought her in, because it could have gotten bad very quickly.
It is going to cost us an arm and a leg, because we have an "urgent care" deductible that has to be met. We had no idea about this, but we would have rather gone to the nice urgent care we went to than the ER at Edmond which would have been our other option for our insurance. Can we say AAAACK!! This is going to throw some huge kinks into our budgeting, but the most important thing is, Allisyn is fine and will not have to suffer like her mom and dad did. Which was really dumb of us too, but oh well. What can you do?
