That was some night! Mia didnt stopped coughing for hours... She was tired and sleepy, but the coughing was just too much, so she only wanted to snooze a bit on top of me while being rocked.

After the nebulization of 6am things calmed down a bit, and by 7am she felt sleep. We both managed to sleep until a bit before 10am (which means 2 hours and something of sleep).

She was way better but was still short of breath... I called the ped as promised and she asked me to take her in. A few hours in the ER, and she decided to let us go... The main reason was that there was no room available and I didnt want to go to another Hospital (unless the hospitalization was 100% necessary)... She told me that the main thing is to be nebulized, and that she needs that I guarantee that I will do it no matter what...

She told me that Mia cant go to school tomorrow (duh!) or Tuesday, and that she hopes that she can come back by Wednesday. She also may start the nebulization every 8 hours by Tuesday, which will gives us a more flexible schedule...

Im looking for a nebulizer online, so if anybody knows about a good one, suggestions are welcomed. Click here to see the one that Im using at my mom's house.

Sorry it as another rough night. You all are in our prayers to get better quickly. I assume all these hospitals and trips to the ER are paid for some how? I can only imagine thr bill if they werent, OMGosh, lol!

Thank you for the prayers.... And that is a nice dream about things being paid... Taking around 4 or 6 cabs per day is enough to have us broke.... Thank God the ER is covered mostly 100% and the ped is giving us a lot of sample medicines, but everytime to go upstairs to see her, we have to pay a difference of 20 bucks from the pocket (for each kid, as Mimi is still sick too), and also some more meds.

i can imagine the cab fare. when i gave birth in canada we had to pay for parking at the hospital each and every time we came nd left and since my mom was in town visiting, ze came and left a lot, lol!
But still i paid over $4000 for Tiago to be in the ER for a few hrs in the states. So cab fare seems little compared to that but i do agree it adds up when unexpected.

We buy most of the things online, so I have wishlists to have in one place everything that we are planning (or at least hoping) to buy.
