Sick

I'll give a dollar to anyone who helps me feel better!
Man, I don't like being sick!!
(These pics were taken a few days ago.)

Olivia started getting a runny nose last night and I could just tell that she was getting sick. We were up most of the night. Pray that it is just a cold. . .poor thing is miserable.

4:00 pm - I decided to take her to the doctor since we're coming up on the weekend. She has an upper respiratory infection, although they didn't even test for RSV. Currently, it is not affecting her breathing (other than her inability to breathe out of her nose) and we're hoping that it stays an upper respiratory infection and doesn't turn into a lower respiratory infection. Those born as early as Olivia don't have the strongest of lungs. . .although she continues to surprise us. Her ears and throat look good. Poor thing has a lot of mucus, nasal congestion and a 102 temp. I gave her some Motrin and she took a short 30 minute nap (the longest she can sleep at one time) and seems to be feeling a bit better. I even got a smile out of her when I asked her if she wanted to watch Baby Signing Times. I've been holding her almost constantly since about 11 pm last night and I have to say that I'm enjoying the snuggle time. Please pray that she doesn't get any worse and is feeling better soon!! Oh, and some sleep for all three of us would be nice as well.

Oh, boy. I hope it is very minor and that she gets over it quickly. Before Easter if possible! I know this is hard on you but I am praying that it will just show you again how tough Olivia is and she will be fine.

Big bummer! hope she feels better soon! And just an idea about something that helps us with runny nose/congestion--- we put big huge books under one side of the crib or elevate one side of the mattress and that really helps Charlie sleep and helps with drainage/congestion. Hope she feels better by Easter!
