Yesterday, I mentioned we’ve had a stressful bloody week. And when I say bloody I mean bloody as in full of blood, not as a slang word. But before I get into that, let me share some silly pictures.
Ok, that one wasn’t silly, just in your face.
How about this?
Yeah…so those were taken at the doctor’s office on Monday. Isabelle has been having nosebleeds. Nine so far this week starting Sunday. And last week she may have had a couple, I cannot remember. She has them occasionally so I don’t really mark them. That is until now.
On Sunday she had three nosebleeds, the last one bloodier and lasting longer than usual. That’s when we made the appointment
The doctor checked her nose. It looked a little raw inside. And it actually started bleeding in the office. Isabelle had some blood tests taken. And the results? Some of Isabelle’s numbers were a little lower than normal, slightly. It didn’t concern the doctor.
But what’s wrong with our girl? It may be allergies. This year her eyes have been itchy and she’s been sniffly. With the AC on the air is dry and it’s all affecting her nose. She’s had a bloody nose every single day this week. EVERY DAY.
At the park. At the mall (yee gads I was at the mall this week, voluntarily). At the home improvement store. At home. When she’s sleeping.
Blood. Blood. Blood. We’ve been putting vaseline in her nose multiple times a day. We’ve had our humidifier (which works sporadically) running. But today, two nosebleeds. So, this afternoon we spent a small chunk of time and change buying an air purifier, a new working humidifier, and saline nose spray. Let’s hope the nosebleeds stop. Really really hope so. Every sniffle last night woke me and I’m sooooooooo sleepy. There is a very good chance I’m going to bed as soon as it gets dark tonight.
So. Yeah. Wish us no more nosebleeds and a good night’s sleep without waking to blood.
