The Boulevard -- All About Amelia article

Quick update: had a terrible night last night. Fever at 103 all night. Almost went to the ER because of wheezing and high respirations at 4:30am, but she settled down and went back to sleep somewhat comfortably. Of course she woke up every 10 minutes with a cough or sneeze -- but we made it through the night and was able to take her to her pediatrician (civilized) this AM.

We were sent to NYU for a chest x-ray. It showed that her left lung is doing better, but her right lung is still looking not-so-good, so they changed her antibiotic and put her on Prednisone (steroid). Hopefully this will kick it! She seems playful but very pooped out. Cancelled all her therapy except for her teacher today. Figured she could use a little stimulation that wouldn't excert any major energy on her part.

This fall, The Boulevard (a society magazine based out of Long Island), came to our house upstate and did an article on Nestor and his work, play, past and present, life with Amelia and I. We just got the hard copy in the mail today. It really is such a well written, folksy article and I was able to find the online link.

Your daughter is just beautiful! I know how you feel about the "kid in the candy store" feeling in the hospital. When my now 4-year-old daughter had complex pneumonia and was hospitalized for almost 3 weeks, we took home a boatload of extremely helpful medical supplies to help her recuperate at home!
