(sorry these are all cell phone pictures so quality is low-but wanted to share my girl)
Friday seemed to be really good for Aubrey and we thought she was still going in right direction. Her healing process is very slow and we know that, but she acted better and actually played and ate a good dinner.
At 2:30am she woke up coughing and vomiting. She had a 102 temp and was breathing really hard. Her pulse ox was 67-70. For those who know that is REALLY low, but I don't think it scares us as much since she LIVED int he 70s for the first 4 months of life. We did rescue inhaler and a nebulizer and got it to 80, but it was clear that she needed to be seen again.
So baby got her BAR CODE back!
X-ray explained: they think that maybe she is at the beginning of a bacterial infection or pneumonia since it looked the same. If she had a virus and was mucusy, the spots on the x-ray would have looked different and have moved around.
Once they cleaned out wax in her ear....they found an ear infection as well! And because when it rains at the Smith's it pours....Emelia came down with an ear infection yesterday too and was running fever. Sympathy sickness:)
Emelia was up three times last night, so it was a good thing that I stayed home instead of Dad-she would have been kind of MAD at him! (still nursing her) Hoping she gets over the hump today since Dad will be home tonight.
Thank you to all who had prayers in church for us today and have been praying all week. We can't thank you enough. And thank you to the Sarah and Amelia who are helping us out with babysitting a bit so we can switch locations and get people to school this week. You girls ROCK!
They don't like to even guess at when she will come home, but the respiratory therapist said he wouldn't plan on anything before Wednesday. So we are planning out our lives daily til then and hoping she gets better faster.....
Dad will be at hospital all day again, so my updates are limited, but I will be back for a sleepover tonight and all day tomorrow.
