Just wanted to share an update on Penelope with everyone. She was admitted to Sick Kids yesterday with what appears to be an aspiration pneumonia- something many of you know I have been worried about happening ever since we got the swallowing problem diagnosed. She had been sick with a cough and cold with a bit of vomiting thrown in there last week, but was doing very well until she aspirated some vomit over the weekend. She went downhill a little while after that, and I brought her to the ER yesterday. She was seen and treated by a doctor very quickly, and we have been receiving wonderful and attentive care. She is getting oxygen and IV fluids and antibiotics, and hopefully we won’t have to stay here too long. 


So my Easter weekend wasn’t the greatest, though we did have fun with the Easter egg hunt for Charlotte on Sunday morning and the nice weather on Saturday morning.

  1. I am so sorry to hear about Penelope. Take care of your sweet little muffin and let me know if there is anything that we can do. I know a couple of wild little men that would love to play with Charlotte if she could use an outing. We will be thinking about you guys!
