Sami The Seal


Well, the girls have been sick on and off for about two months.  Shawn and I and I'm sure the girls are sick of being sick!!!  Last Thursday the girls woke up with a bad cough and I feared the worse, they're sick again!  Shawn and I both went to work thinking they have only another virus/cold.  Unfortunately,  they were worse than we thought.  Adisyn was really struggling to breathe.  Shawn called their doctor and she was unable to see them.  She recommended Phoenix Children's Hospital Urgent Care.  We enjoyed our visit nonetheless.  Adisyn had a high fever and low oxygen saturation.  The doctor we initially saw was having a hard time determining whether  to give her a breathing treatment or get an x-ray and determine if she has pneumonia.  We ended up getting an x-ray and sure enough she was diagnosed with pneumonia.  Yesterday the girls were getting worse again so Shawn took them back to the doctor.  This time we feel that they received the medication we were finally comfortable with... Albuterol.  They each got a really strong antibiotic to help with the infection if their lungs, eye drops for the infection in their eyes, and Sami.  I have a feeling this blue seal will be in our lives for awhile.  Sami is a at home albuterol breathing treatment.  It's possible the girls will grow out of asthma or needing albuterol, but with Shawn's history they may not.  We are just so happy they are getting what they need to get better.  These restless nights remind me of having twin newborns again.

This is the sickest my angels have been, so for me this was extremely difficult to see.  Fortunately I have Shawn through the hard times.  He has been such an amazing Dad.  The girls even talked Daddy into painting their nails.  He tried but did not do a very good job, so we'll see if they ask for a mani/pedi today from Mommy.

Oh poor girls... and parents! That is no fun but I am glad that you guys have figured out what the problem is. Your girls are adorable and if anyone can look cute in a breathing treatment mask it is them! Take care Deleon Family! xoxo from Alaska
