Update...


Annabel's cough is better but the mucous is still hanging in there. We do have a suction machine but it is at a point that I can't reach. The nurse came Wednesday evening and said she listen to her lungs and she doesn't feel it is in her lungs. Like most times it is just upper airway. The last couple evenings she seems to have much gas and become distended. She want to eat and does, but then becomes uncomfortable. Last night was her best night this week and I am very thankful. Hopefully this will run its course and she will be her smiley self by next week. Thank you to everyone who has called or commented for their encouragement and prayers.

No pictures, no smiles...

Oh well I need to be grateful of the well times. She can get sick very quickly. While at church Sunday evening we noticed her coughing and she had not been prior to this. I just assumed maybe someones perfume was bothering her. Wrong! She fell asleep about 9p.m. then woke up around 10:30p.m. and never went back to sleep until about 6:15 a.m. Precious baby was so miserable and was just choking on her mucos. She doesn't move this very well, it just sits. She slept a few hours in the a.m. then a little more in the afternoon. The tube feedings came in handy and I was able to get her feedings in. Again last night she fell asleep around 9 and by 11 p.m. she was awake and so uncomfortable. The only position was up and on my chest. Needless to say I am tired! Today it looks like the mucos is breaking up and I am hoping for a much better night tonight. Let me not end this without thanking God that we do not have a urinary to go along with this. Usually they go hand in hand and I am thanking God that this is just a summer cold. Hopefully soon she will be back to her smiley little self and sleeping better. Of course, then mom can quit whinning.
