Just wanted to pop in to say hello.
Fern is sleeping right now, but has been feeling under the weather today.
We actually had a scary morning…Woke up to her loud, wheezing cough on the baby monitor and rushed into her room thinking she was choking. It sounded super scary and by the time I got to her room my heart was racing a million miles a minute.
It turned out to just be a cough that had turned wheezy during the night. Her poor, little labored breaths were heartbreaking. I immediately remembered all the commercials I’d seen during my pregnancy about whooping cough and began convincing myself that she must have it. She isn’t vaccinated (that’s a story for another day), so it’s a possibility.
I called the advice nurse at her pediatrician’s office and as it was before office hours, they suggested bundling her up to take her outside to breathe in the cold air. I did this and after about 15 minutes she seemed a lot better.
She’s still pretty wheezy, but after researching whooping cough more online and also looking up croup, I think that what she has seems more like croup than whooping cough, but it could just be a regular sickness, maybe just different than anything she’s had before.
I guess we’ll just wait and see what happens over the weekend. Prayers that she’s feeling better soon though!
This is why there were no blanks this morning. But, I wanted to pop in to say hi and leave you with this picture of Fern from our little photo shoot the other day. I just love this girl. (*Feel free to catch up on some of her adventures as of late here)
