I wrote up a post for Halloween and set it to post here at midnight or thereabouts but I'm here now to post something in real time, or something.
Yvie's not been feeling well of late but she just had a major coughing fit. About 10 days ago, she had several of these in about a 24-hour period. They're severe enough that she wakes up from a deep sleep, and some have even led to her throwing up. Like the one she just had. I walked into her bedroom and she'd been in bed for about an hour but coughed herself awake and was crying, telling me "I don't want to cough anymore" before the coughing got worse.
We'd been treating it with Triaminic but it didn't really clear anything up. We took her to the doctor about a week later after she got a fever because up until then it was just cough. She didn't have the flu but the doctor said she had some sort of bacterial infection and prescribed her prednisolone and albuterol.
Nothing seems to be working, as she's been taking those for four days now and the coughing is as bad tonight as it's been.
Anyway, have any of you had any experience with this sort of thing, either personally or with your own children?
