We quickly turned the shower on and stood in there with her so the steam could help open her up some. She started to sound a bit better till we got out of the shower and back to the bed with her. We gave her some guifenesin to help loosen up the phlegm in her chest and rubbed vicks on her feet and chest and had the humidifier going. She ended up sleeping between us last night although I could say we didn't get much sleep. I kept being afraid she would stop breathing and I think I prayed just about the entire night even in my sleep :) She sounded much better once she fell asleep but still was wheezing most the night.
I took her into the doctor this morning and he tested her for RSV which was negative and said that it sounds like one of the many viruses going around or croup. She has started breathing so much better through out the day and seems to be doing okay the night time just worries me because most likely it will be coming back again tonight. The doc perscribed some liquid steroids to help keep the phlegm loose in her chest and hopefully help eliminate some of the wheezing at night and he said to just continue what we did last night with her and it will just have to run its course.
Exciting news: Mina is now up to 17.5 lbs!!! She has gained 3.5 lbs in the past couple months! Horray!!
Please keep our little angel in your prayers and that she feels better and that this little bug doesn't last long.
