    Default My baby is sick -- Regina caught a bad cold

    So because the universe is testing my resolve (I'm sick and on antibiotics, we're moving to Florida in 3 days and are packing like crazy....) yesterday I woke up to Regina coughing and snotting. She had a little bit of a runny nose for the previous day but she seemed fine otherwise and I thought it was allergies maybe from dust getting kicked around from packing up the house. I called the vet's office and they had no open appointments. I begged and luckily the vet knows me and loves Ruckus and Regina, so she said she would give me an antibiotic if I brought her in Monday morning. I started giving her the antibiotic yesterday. I think she might be worse today. I woke up to her wheezing and gasping for air, poor thing. I'm guessing maybe she caught a cold at the park.

    I'm freaking out about driving with her sick and worried Ruckus will catch it. I just don't know what to do. We can't really postpone the move, we could maybe leave Thursday instead of Wednesday.

    Hopefully the meds will kick in and will help soon. You can also put her in the bathroom and run a hot shower and the steam should help or use a vaporizer. Hopefully she will be better by Wednesday. Hopefully you can get her to the vet tomorrow if she is not better, so they can get her on the right meds. I would still travel with her, as they usually just sleep in the car anyway, just keep an eye on her.

    @g8erjackie I would get her back to the vet tomorrow(Mon.) and have her checked out. Certainly try what @Davidh recommended with the steam. When one son was little,he was always sick,and that's what we did so many times. I am sorry to hear that Regina is sick. Life always throws curve balls at every one. We will all be praying for you and your family,that it will work out fine,and you and that little girl will perk up and have an easy trip.

    Just saw the vet. Regina is doing much better! Still some projectile snotting, but the coughing has subsided.

    So glad to hear she's doing better. Okay, is that a real bulldog?? It almost looks a like doll!?

    My whole heart, Tyson.
