Is This the Apocalypse?

Photo taken as I wrote this post
Since Friday night:
Benadryl - every four hours. Around the clock.
Hydroxyzine - a prescription antihistamine. Twice/day. On a dose higher than given to adults because it knocks people out. She has no effects.
Prednisone - a dose high enough to make her doctors worry she could suffer long term effects. Twice/day.
Albuterol - three times/day. Also, every 4 hours as needed for breathing problems.
Advair - twice daily.
Epi-pen - as needed.

We. Still. Have. Hives.

Where - on that list of medications - is xanax for me??

Although I'm not sure which, I am sure this is going to kill one of us.

Nothing is worse than a sick child. Hang in there Mom. Time is on your side.

Jen said...

Oh that poor little kid. There is nothing worse than a sick child and one getting all that medication must be really scary. Hang in there, I hope she feels better soon.

Ann said...

Wow, poor kid, she must be miserable, well when she's not knocked out from the drugs that is. It's probably you that's miserable all day and night. I'll be thinking of you both. Hang in there.

Oh my God! How awful for both of you. I'm so sorry you both have to go through this. My thoughts are with you for a speedy recovery so she can get off some of that medication.

OH MY GOSH ~ That poor baby. I can't even imagine what your going through. Just remember that Jesus is the GREATEST physician of all time, and he's STILL in the healing business today. I will pray for her recovery, and you hang in there and know that God is with you every step of the way... Many Texas hugs ~ Jody

Poor dear! Hope she (and you!) get some relief soon!

OMG hives, that's awful. She looks awful. I bet that's being really awful for you. Hope they go away soon!

I started to post something sarcastic, but what you are going through is no laughing matter. Although, I admire you greatly for wanting to keep your sense-of-humor going. So, if it helps, I am rather miffed that you may be having a more miserable time than I am now. For I just don't like the idea that someone else may be more in need of sympathy than me.

Ann said...

Just popping back in on you to say I hope your daughter is getting better.

Jude said...

I hope she is better today, what a nightmare this must have been, take care and let us know how the poor baby is doing.

Lin said...

Oh, gees. Let's hope this goes away FAST. Sorry this is happening. Hang in there.

That's really unfortunate. She looks really sick and tired here. I really hope that you guys can get through this.

I hope she's a bit better now.

But are you sure these are hives? Are you really sure???

OMG - Poor thing! And poor Momma Queen having to play nurse. I hope she's feeling better now!
