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!
