I don’t really know where to start. Charlotte finished the antibiotic treatment to get rid of the PJP she was diagnosed with in Philadelphia. I really did not see a change, positive or negative which was a little discouraging.
We had to move on to the next plan of treatment, high dose pulse steroids. This would be three 1 hour infusions over three days. Her first treatment was a planned admittance into the children’s hospital. Because of her bipap machine, she would have to be admitted into the PICU. A week before this plan, Charlotte caught a simple cold as did the rest of our family. It hit her the hardest but she seemed to have finally kicked it and we were able to celebrate her 6th birthday with her classmates. This was previously postponed because of our unexpected stay in Philadelphia, so my hope was to celebrate ASAP.
