Today Miss Olivia is 2 months old!!!
I brought her in this morning as she has been struggling with a cold since Christmas Eve and it had progressively gotten worse. Last night she made me nervous enough to warrant a trip to the Dr who looked at her and sent us to be admitted.
So instead of getting ready for our trip to Minneapolis to celebrate a good friend's wedding...
We are celebrating it in the hospital with RSV.
Wishing this were Wheel of Fortune and I was buying those letters and not a virus for my little lady.
She was pale, lethargic and struggling when we were first admitted...
Thankfully she perked up pretty quickly after IV fluids and some nebulizer treatments.
I am so THANKFUL that we are here and she is getting the treatment she needs.
It has sure been hard to be on the other side of things....as a momma and not a nurse.
I am also very thankful for my mom for taking the boys for the afternoon so Richard could spend time up here and get ready for the wedding.
I am also thankful for my sister sitting with Olivia so I could sneak home and eat supper, see the boys and pack a bag quickly.
I am also thankful for a visit from a few friends and some ice cream and coffee ;0)
Please pray for a speedy recovery and for patience while we wait this out.
RSV is a virus and there is unfortunately no magical medicine we can give her, just treat the symptoms (IV fluids, oxygen if needed, and nebulizers).
