It is significant to mention here that Mirah had been coughing for a couple of weeks now. Mostly nothing. No runny nose, just a cough, when she would run and sometimes at night. Now when I look at pictures of her at the football game, I can see it in her eyes. She was not feeling well. But it didn’t seem worse than just a cold.
So, when we went in to see the doctor, it was a combined 2 1/2 year visit and check up on the elbow. We were planning on getting her a flu shot that day too. She seemed fine when we came in. I mentioned that she had been sick with a cough recently. The doctor even said, “As long as her lungs don’t sound too crackly, we will get her the shot.” After just seconds after she gave her a lungs a good listen, she said, “well no shot for her today.” He lungs we infected. She had two ear infections. Even a sinus infection.
First things first, they gave her a breathing treatment.
