Poor Sweet Baby

My sweet sweet baby girl is still sick :(   I received a call from our daycare lady this morning when I was working telling me that Ali was wheezing today and just seemed to be getting worse with her cold.  I called the doctor and KK took her in this afternoon.
Turns out our poor girl has RSV, a virus that only babies get that affects their lungs and breathing. First of all, let me say I am sooo thankful to the woman who watches Ali for picking up on her wheezing!  I just thought he
r cold was running it's course... first time mom alert!

The doctor prescribed singulair to help clear her airways, and she is on breathing treatments with a nebulizer every four hours. She has to sleep sitting up, so we will try her in her swing tonight and see how that goes.  Hopefully our little family can get some sleep - after 3 nights in a row of the sweet angel crying and coughing all night long, we are all exhausted!  

Momma is going to stay home with her tomorrow (thank goodness- I'm not feeling too great myself) and Daddy will stay home next week because he has more sick days.  I take her back to the doc tomorrow morning, hopefully they will see some improvement in her oxygen intake, otherwise baby girl will have to be admitted to the hospital :-( 
Please send up prayers for me sweet girl!

Oh poor baby. My son had that when he was little and his wheezing sounded like whining and I was irritated with him until my mom came over and said Uh HM he can't breath. Talk about feeling like the worst mom in the whole world. Well now that you know, hopefully she'll get better quick!
