EDITED: Caroline has the beginning of an ear infection in her right ear (on amoxicillin), fever, RSV bronchiolitis (on breathing treatments 4 times a day), and on Claritin once a day, and will be using a saline nasal spray to help with her congested nose. YUCK! Apparently, since she was so sick in Guatemala with RSV, she is more likely to get it again. So...we can look forward to having a rough winter! I think we are going to sell our house and live in a bubble!!! :)
Caroline is sick AGAIN! We just got over being sick. Poor baby! On Saturday night, she would wake herself up by coughing and then would whimper. This has been going on each night for a few days. By Sunday afternoon, she had a 103 fever with a deep cough. We immediately started alternating the motrin and tylenol. Tim had her for a few hours while I was hosting a baby shower and he reports that she threw up (curdled milk) and had two massive diarrheas. On Monday, her fever stayed around 102/103 with around the clock medicine. She didn't want to eat and didn't want to drink. I had to watch her carefully for a wet diaper. She had a little one, so I knew she was taking in some fluids. This morning, she is now sleeping in our bed upright because she can't breathe. I put in a call to the doctor who is working us in for a 1:45 appointment. She is worried about RSV (since she has had a bad history of it in Guatemala, hence part of the running away to get her healthy). I'll keep you updated...
