Poor Ray Ray. She has had quite the weekend. If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw I took her to the ER last night. Her congestion and cough took a turn for the worse when she woke up from her nap yesterday with fever, shortness of breath and a wheeze in her breathing. I admit I did panic a little bit. I called every nurse I knew but still wasn't sure if I should take her to the ER. The ER on a Saturday night, when I had taken her to the Dr. two times in the past two weeks (with everything checking out fine), seemed a little extreme.
She started getting worse by the minute so I just grabbed her from Cody and loaded her up. I still wasn't sure if I was going to the ER but I had to do something! I called my friend Elizabeth to see if she would listen to her and tell me what she thought (her son has had pneumonia). She agreed and even called a Dr. friend for me. She listened for a few minutes and said take her. I called my nurse friend who works in the ER and told her I was on the way. She notified the front desk so we were able to just walk right in and see the Dr. HUGE praise!! The waiting room was packed. Her oxygen level was fine. She tested negative for the flu and RSV but her chest X-ray showed pneumonia in her left lung. They gave her a breathing treatment and antibiotic shot.
It is NOT fun seeing your baby so sick and being helpless. I know it could have been so much worse but at the time it seemed horrible. I'm so thankful Elizabeth went with me to the ER. She was a great support and I'm so thankful my friend was working in the ER and got us right in once they saw how bad she was. Please pray her medicine kicks in quickly and she recovers soon! Thank you for praying!
