Pneumonia :-(

What a bummer! Miss Sumana has pneumonia. UGH!! We've been working so hard to keep her lungs open and healthy . . . but she still got sick! I knew she was not feeling great yesterday . . . she was literally dragging her feet. Then, this morning she woke up crying. She was really upset about not being able to breathe (I think we would all want to cry!) She coughed and coughed almost uncontrollably. It was so sad.

We got in first thing to see Dr. Byer from Sumana's primary's office. Once again, it's her left lung that's the culprit. He's concerned enough that we go back to see him again tomorrow morning to make sure things aren't any worse. In the meantime, we're going to squeeze in 4 respiratory treatments today and have started on an antibiotic. I also informed Dr. Voter (her pulmonary doc) of what's going on. So, I'll keep you posted.


  1. Oh...I'm sorry you are sick, Sumana!! I hope and pray that you feel better soon!

  2. That stinks Sumana!
    Hope you clear up soon!
    Your cousins,
