Ha, wow. Totally forgot to update this, as I usually kept the chat room up to date. My bad, but I'm here to apologize and post what did eventually happen.
Both girls ended coming down with whatever it was. My youngest actually had it WORSE. We did end up having to make one ER trip, when her fever spiked to 105.9 while she was still on a dose on a Motrin.
Turns out, they got a really, REALLY bad upper respiratory infection, and both were put on very strong antibiotics. Youngest's actually spread somehow to her eyes, so she got put on eyedrops for that too.....
And then...they prescribed Prednisone, since the oldest's cough was so bad. Oh. My. God. Oldest was literally running in circles around the house with that stuff.
Thankfully though, both reacted well to the meds, and it cleared up a little over a week later. I'd say we were over the last of it just a few days ago, in fact.
Was a crazy, CRAZY ride, but thankfully, everything turned out alright, and it wasn't pneumonia after all. They thought right up until the ER visit that it was, though! :|
