Evalyn's First Illness

I was very sad when on Sunday Evalyn started getting really stuffy in her nose and then started with a slight cough. It got worse here and there when there was too much for her to deal with. Jason and I took turns staying up with her overnight since sometimes a coughing fit would break out and she's have a hard time breathing. We went to the doctor right away in the morning and they sent us to get a mucus test and x-ray of her chest to see if it was RSV, a respiratory virus. She has it. Since it's a virus there isn't any medication that can give to make her better. She is doing nebulizer treatments to help her little lungs deal with everything. It will take anywhere from 7-14 days for her to get over this. We have no idea where she got it either since we haven't been around anyone that has been sick.

Please be praying for her to get better and us to get enough sleep. Thank you all.

Passed out and sleeping in bouncer for just a little bit.

First breathing treatment with "Bubbles the Fish" mask. (That is the name on the paper it came with.) :-)

She looks so tired of all her coughing. She had just woken up from a nap.

Arrr, we will fight this and win!!!
