Update on Bethany- she is doing ok! We saw the pediatrician this morning. Her oxygen levels are still off but not alarming. Her breathing is also too fast but again, not alarming like it was before and she''s not wheezing. We can keep doing what we are doing here at home with the suction machine. He told me to only breastfeed (we had started solids and a cup awhile back) because that is most important for her right now. She lost 4oz since Saturday and the doctor said it''s not uncommon for them to lose 10-15% of their body weight from this illness. Infants and RSV just don''t mix!
The good news is that she isn''t completely miserable because she will play for short periods of time on the floor. She has started scooting towards things she wants! She really likes one of Wyatt''s new trucks and tries to get to it. Maybe she''ll grow up playing trucks with her brother like I did. Although sometimes Dan allowed me to work my barbies into the truck/lincoln log play.
