Monday - Anna Update

Have heard the one about my weekend!!!!
Saturday morning we got up and our 6 month old seemed to be getting only worse. That being said we all 4 piled into the car and drove to the doctor. Doctor said she was dehydrated and suffering from RSV and sent her to the hospital to be admitted.
We spent from about 12:30 to 4:30 in the ER being told that they were going to admit her. About 5:00 the doctors changed their mind, wrote a prescription for a Nebulizer, and sent her home with instructions to drink lots of pedialyte.
So Sunday was the battle to Nebulize (she is not a fan) and give lots of pedialyte. She is keeping down the pedialyte. She coughs enough phlegm up after a Nebulizer treatment to compete with a 60 year old life long smoker. She does not seem to have any desire to get much better either.
Right now we are waiting. If she does not begin to recover soon, I assume we will be back at the ER again.
