Better Days

I felt much better this past week and will be finished with this round Monday night. I have an appointment with my doc in Tucson on the 23rd. It is a check in visit to ensure that everything looks good with the treatment so far and to confirm how long he wants me on it. Also, it is time for my next CT scan. I can't believe 3 months have gone by already. It will be scheduled for either the 16th or 17th so the results will be available when I see the doc.

Although I felt better this week, unfortunately Teya did not. She was out of school all week with Croup which is medically speaking "an inflammation of the upper airway that leads to a cough that sounds like a bark". She started off with a "head cold" over the weekend, but by Monday evening she was hoarse and not speaking as her throught hurt. She didn't speak for 2 days, only whispered. It was very quiet around the house and we were glad when she got her voice back. She was really happy and kept singing "I got my voice back!" It was cute. She had to have breathing treatments every 4 hours this week which we gave her at home and as of today she is doing great. She is outside with Todd right now playing in the yard in our 70 degree weather. It is a nice day.

GLAD u are feeling better... and Teya too!!

I go for my next checkup next week in LA...We must be on the same "3 month schedule".. only for me, it's the lovely "bronch," instead of the CT... THINKING CLEAR thoughts for both of us!!! :)

I've been thinking about you, Tina. Glad you're almost done with this round and feeling better finally. Good luck with your CT scan! Croup is not fun, and at times, very scary to watch/listen to. Glad Teya's better!
