How goes the Whoopin'

Edited to add: no pneumonia, yay! (although she does have coarse breathing sounds). If the fever continues tomorrow afternoon, there are standing orders at the hospital for a UA and CBC - maybe we'll get to the bottom of this. She just woke up again drenched in sweat and with a temperature of only 97.2. Can we say it together? "We are the medical mystery family."

After a weekend of a second, stronger round of Zithromycin and 105 fevers, the baby seemed to take a turn for the better last night. She woke up drenched in sweat after a nap earlier in the day and again last night (the fever is down around 101 now, and is hopefully on its way out).

She is still coughing and vomiting whenever she eats as well as when she sleeps; and darn it all, my untrained ear thinks it can hear something purring away in her left lung. Just to be on the safe side, we are visiting the doctor this afternoon to rule out a secondary infection.
