greensad.gif sorry to hear that.  haven't experienced it myself, but one of DDS's buddies had it when he was under a year old and wound up in the ER cuz he was so wheezy.  hope she's doing ok...nerve-wracking when they're so little and they get sick.

Oh, no!! Wishing her a quick and easy recovery, and as much rest as possible for you.

Oh no!  That must be scary.  I'm glad she is eating better and hope you are all back to normal soon.  What were symptoms you noticed?


StephandOwen 11-22-2011 09:43 AM

Oh no! I hope she's feeling better soon!!


nicolian 11-22-2011 05:22 PM

Thanks, guys. Her symptoms were pretty obvious - coughing, wheezing, chest retracting, runny nose, labored/fast breathing, less interest in eating.

 

We had another ped appt this morning and were admitted to the hospital. Her blood oxygen level was coming in at 89. She responded very quickly to a small amount of oxygen though. So, here we are. sigh She just had a good feed and is sound asleep on me. <3

I'm so sorry to hear that things went downhill with her. Many hugs to you.

DD1 never had RSV, but had a lot of wheezing episodes when she was smaller, but not so small as your LO. So, so scary.  I hope she is on the mend & feeling better soon!

Thank you. :) It is pretty scary but at least now I can look up at the monitor when she seems to be doing terribly and see that her O2 is good. Unfortunately, if the little nose mask even comes off for a minute her level drops very fast. It drops when she cries too. :( We have to have her stable on room air before they will let us leave. So.. seems like that probably won't be today but I guess you never know. These little ones can be so tough!

 

I am so tired that I don't even feel it anymore. The past 4 nights I have slept maybe 3 hours each with no good naps. It has to end sometime, right? I can't last like this forever.

poor little girl! (and, her mama). I hope she is all better very soon.


Rosemarino 11-23-2011 06:41 AM

oh, nicole. all my best wishes for both of your recoveries.


~pi 11-24-2011 08:42 AM

Nicole, just a note to let you know that I am thinking of you both and hoping all is going well. I hope she is stable on room air soon! Hang in there.


starling&diesel 11-24-2011 02:58 PM

Thinking of you and your wee one!  Healing vibes: dust.gif

How is Calliope doing, Nicole? And how are you holding up? Thinking of you both! hug2.gif


Amy May 11-25-2011 01:17 PM

Nicole, thinking of you and Calliope.  I hope she is feeling better very soon!  Hugs to you, mamma!


penguintattoo 11-25-2011 09:22 PM

Hoping she is doing better and you are getting some rest!

AKislandgirl 11-25-2011 09:28 PM

How is everything going Nicole? Sure hope you are all feeling better.


starling&diesel 11-26-2011 05:40 PM

Thinking of you, Nicole!  (And worrying a bit too, to be honest.)


Katico 11-26-2011 05:59 PM

yeahthat.gif  I sure hope you're both doing better!  You've been in my thoughts  xo


nicolian 11-26-2011 06:42 PM

Hey, ladies. I'm so sorry to leave you hanging! We were able to come home Friday evening! Calliope is doing SO much better and I have even gotten some good sleep. Thanks so much for the thoughts and support. I think it all really helped. <3


dollyanna 11-26-2011 07:13 PM

So glad to hear that Calliope is doing better & is back at home!


starling&diesel 11-26-2011 11:53 PM

Phew!  So glad to hear the good news!  Yay for a healthy Calliope!


AKislandgirl 11-27-2011 11:23 AM
