Reanne missed school last Thursday, Friday and Monday, so on Tuesday I sent Reanne to school again. I felt a little bad because she was coughing up her lungs all morning, but I thought she could handle it. At 1:00 that day the office called me to come pick her up. She coughed so hard that she threw up. I'm a bad mom, I know. We bought a humidifier which we turn on every night in the girl's room. Grant gets it if he needs it. But even with our new device, Reanne woke up the other night with more problems. She was screaming and when I went in to see what was wrong she had blood coming out of her nose and mouth. It was quite a shock at first until I realized that she was sucking down a bloody nose and trying to spit it out again. Gross. This happened again last night as well. Poor Sierra is now having nightmares that Reanne is going to throw up or get blood all over her during the night on her trundle bed. Switching her head to the opposite side of Reanne's helped a little.
Tonight we are prepared. Reanne is drugged with cough medicine. We put the humidifier on full blast, closed the heat vent, put Vaseline in Reanne's nose and I think I might wear earplugs.
