This is no fun:0(

So, early this morning we decided to take Vaeh in to the ER to be checked. Her cough just hadn't gotten any better, & she was really starting to rattle when you'd listen to her breathe. Something told my 'Mommy intuition' that I should check her sats & sure enough, she was down to low 90's, even dropping to 88%! Definitely not her norm.

So up to Lima Mawmaw, Mommy & Vaeh went. Of course they tried to start an IV (even though she hadn't been vomiting & she'd been eating good) & couldn't get a line. So they finally decided to just go with a blood draw & chest x-ray. Thankfully the blood work came back okay. Her chest x-ray was okay, but the doc said he couldn't compare it because their system was down (darn computers!). From what he described to me, it sounded better. So, after hearing that I had seen her most previous film, he brought this morning's in for me to look at. I don't think I've ever seen such a good film on Vaeh:0) He was quite comfortable with us bringing her home, knowing that I was pretty on the ball with her - FINALLY a doctor who doesn't think that Mom's are stupid! (I need to go back & clone this guy, huh?!!)

So we got back home around 8 AM. Vaeh & I both slept 'til about noon & she acts fine. She is on 2 ltrs. O2 now, but I"m going to try to wean her as I can. I'm also gonna call her card's office on Monday to see if we need to re-schedule her CT scan. She always has trouble after having anesthesia with her lungs if they're not so good to begin with! So we'll see where we go from here.

Hope everyone else is doing well. I promise I'll post those pics I've been promising - later:0)

Oh, no fun at all! Poor baby girl. I hope she is feeling better. Elijah's lungs always have trouble with the anesthesia, too. Please give the sweet girl hugs for me. Stay healthy, all of you! xoxoox
