Update on Eden

Thank you to all those who have been praying for Eden. She is finally asleep in her crib....NOT in my arms! I took her to Ella's follow-up appointment on Friday and had the doctor check her since she was snotty and cranky. The doctor confirmed that she was getting RSV and that I should give her the breathing treatments once she started wheezing. So, we went home and went about our day. On Saturday we stayed in all day and she acted REALLY cranky and clingy so I knew it was going to be a long night. I told David to go out and I would stay with the girls since Eden goes to bed at 7pm and Ella not too long after that. Well, he left and I kid you not....Eden SCREAMED in her crib from 7 until 10:05pm. I kept thinking she would pass out from crying so hard but when I couldn't take it anymore I went in to get her and the poor little thing could barely see me through her swollen red eyes. I felt awful!!! Long story short, she had a terrible night. I called the doctor this morning and she said that Eden is too small to just call in a prescription without checking her first so we took her to Acute Kids Urgent Care (LOVE THEM!!!) and had her checked. I figured she had double ear infections because she had started pulling at her ears while crying today but I had no idea that her right ear drum had busted! No wonder the poor thing has been screaming for 2 days. I feel like a terrible mommy.

She's been medicated and will hopefully sleep through the night. Your continued prayers are greatly appreciated.

Quick Update on Ella

Well, we got to the pediatrician's office around 3:45 for our 4pm appointment and walked into a room FULL of waiting patients. Seriously, counting us, there were 12 people sitting on the floor and all of the seats were taken! (I will never do that alone again.)

We were the last ones to see the doc and as soon as she heard Ella wheezing she swabbed her nose to test for RSV. Sure enough, it was positive. They gave her a breathing treatment in the office and sent us home with an antibiotic and a steriod. We're to give her breathing treatments every six hours and come back at the end of the week. (By the way, we left the office around 5:45!!! Eden was going bonkers!)

Please pray for us as RSV is highly contagious and if Eden gets it again, the risk of her having adult asthma doubles. That scares me.
