So Far This Has Not Been a Great Day

My daughter woke up this morning and said her ear hurt. She has been having a cough for a little over a week, so I thought it was just from that. I decided to let her stay home from school. And to call her Doctor so they could check her out.

While I was waiting to hear from her Doctor, I got a call from my sister. My sister told me my mother is in the hospital. My mother went to the hospital yesterday because she was having chest pains.

So I tried to call my mom in the hospital but the line was busy. Then I got an appointment for my daughter at 10:45 this morning. Went to the Doctors. The Doctor listened to my daughter's breathing. Then she looked in her ear. She said she has a slight pneumonia! And her ear was swollen and red from that! I couldn't believe it! She will have to take antibiotics and it should clear up. And we have to go back in 10 days. I'm just glad that I actually did call the Dr.!

Then I got back and finally got through to my mother. She has had some tests, they are not sure what it is yet. They are keeping her waiting. You know how hospitals are. Don't know much yet. She hopes to go home today. Not sure if that is going to happen. I hope she's ok.

So that is my day so far.


  1. Hope things get better soon for mom and dd love.

    Oh and BOO.

  2. Hi Sue,
    I hope your daughter gets to feeling better now. It was a good thing you did take her to the doctor. I also hope your mom is ok. I was having chest pains also and I finally went to the doctor. He said my heart sounded good and my blood pressure was great. He did send me to the hospital for a bunch of tests. Come to find out that I have, a small case of Acid Reflux. (heart burn) This was making my chest hurt. I was so happy that my heart was fine. My mom has this too. I just need to watch out for certain foods that I eat.

  3. My mother did come home yesterday. And they do think it is Acid Reflux. They gave her some pills. I don't know why they couldn't figure this out sooner, because she has been to the hospital at least 2 other times over this. I hope this is the answer. And my daughter seems to be doing better too. :)

  4. Sorry to hear about your day. I am glad to see that Mom and kiddo are doing better. I have some viral, throwing up thing and a double ear infection over here. Of course, right before Halloween too!
