KatMom Posted December 30, 2012 Share Posted December 30, 2012 I have 2 granddaughters age nearly 5 and nearly 3..Last July they came down with colds..Ultimately after normal care they just kept getting worse. Upon taking them to the doctor he says the older one has tonsillitus and the 3 year old has pneumonia..He prescribed medicines and over a few months they got better..But they never seemed really well..They are very active little girls and it seemed like they were better.. A week or so ago the oldest one started getting a sore throat and a temp of 103. The 3 year old developed a bad cough..Their mom took them i back to pediatrician and its the same diagnosis as before. the doctor has prescribed steroids and meds for them and twice daily inhalation treatments for the older one and 4 times daily for the younger one..These kids get sick frequently and we are getting very concerned that something really bad is at work here. I just don't think its normal for kids to be sick so much..Has any one of you ever heard of problems like this? Ever had any experience with this. Isn't it odd that such a small child keeps getting pneumonia? Quote Link to comment
