I HATE allergies!

Warning: Major vent and "feel sorry for ourselves" message to follow....

As I mentioned on the other board, Emily likely has pneumonia. She had double pneumonia exactly 2 years ago. The pedi thinks that the cough she started with was likely due to allergies. That cough then developed into pneumonia. Ggggreeeeaattttt.

When she is better, I'll make an appointment to talk to her allergist to see what we need to do in the Spring now. Is the poor child going to end up with pneumonia every Spring now because of seasonal allergies?

I know I can handle it, but I DON'T THINK I CAN HANDLE IT! When Emily got up yesterday morning, her temp was 106.5. (Yes, you read that correctly.) I freaked.

I know things could be worse, and there are tons of kids that have it much, much worse, but I feel so sorry for Emily right now. Her spring break is ruined due to @#$% allergies. She is miserable, and the thought of dealing with this every Spring is upsetting.

Sorry for the vent, but I do feel better after typing that all out. I just need to keep on, keeping on....

{{HUGS}} mama. This truly sucks. 106.5 is a terrifying number!

Both you and Em must be really tired. Sorry spring break is ruined - that is a total bummer too.

Sending you a virtual bowl of chicken noodle....hang in there.

I wrote a big long response before but it did not post. Anyway...I hope she is feeling better which by now she should be. I hope they are able to find a way to control the allergies somehow so she doesn't have to go through this every single year
