Mommy and Me Monday - Urgent Care

Poor Annie got really sick this weekend.  Sudden fever of 101.3+, which didn't go down with Tylenol.  Super deep, chest cough that sounded like she belonged at Pier 39 with the Sea Lions.  With our Pediatrician's office closed, we hiked it up over to Urgent Care.

They did a chest x-ray to check for infection and a breathing treatment and just had us sit there with a cool mist humidifier going.

Diagnosis was Bronchiolitis, caused by a virus.  No meds but Tylenol and Motrin to keep the fever down.  Tylenol wasn't cutting it, so we stuck with Motrin.

She's home with Daddy today.  

Here are a couple shots from Urgent Care on Saturday.

The contraption she was in to stabilize her during the chest xray.  Of her short 11 months, she's had 2 separate sets of X-rays.  Poor girl.

Laying on the bed with the humidifier tube.

Oh poor thing. I was trying to figure out what that device was! Nat has x-rays at like 10 days old because she had a terrible cough (actually, it was on Halloween, too), so, she was like 20 days old, but they had nothing like that, so I had to hold her little newborn body just right.

I hope she's feeling better pronto. I've found the best thing for us is alternating tylenol and motrin...and you can overlap them (so it's like medicine every 2-3 hours), according to our ped.
