As many of you are already aware Iyla is on antibiotics for severe bronchitis. After over a week of random high fevers i decided to take Iyla to see a doctor this past Saturday. We were told she needed to take antibiotics to stop the bronchitis from turning into pneumonia. I'm very thankful we caught it in time. We were very scared to give her antibiotics after our experience with Abbey. We are on day 4 with Iyla now and thankfully our prayers have been answered and she isn't reacting to them too badly. She is miserable most of the day, has awful diarrhoea, has some reflux and is basically off all her food but it's bearable. She is still sleeping well at night which is giving me the strength to deal with her during the day. She just needs lots of extra cuddles. There are still another 4 days to go so we are praying hard the symptoms wont build up any worse. Thankfully the antibiotics are doing their job and her fever is gone. Her chest is still very rattly and although she isn't coughing too much when she does it is heartbreaking to listen to. It sounds so painful. Please continue to pray for a full recovery for her.
