It looks like winter has officially arrived in these parts!!
We woke up to a few inches of snow this morning and it is still coming down. I believe the forecast is calling for about 8 inches, so we most likely won't be going anywhere today, which is good, because we are still trying to get Miss Reagan well.
We went back to the pediatrician yesterday, and while her oxygen levels have improved a few points over the last 5 days, he said that her lungs are still "crackling" when he listens to her chest.
So what does this mean? The nebulizer is staying for the next five days.
He feels that we might be dealing with something that is called Bronchiolitis.
As he explained it, it's caused be a viral infection in the lungs and we have to let it run it's course, but we need to watch for things such as a high fever or if her breathing starts to become more labored and we notice a lot more wheezing than we see right now.
I do think we are on our way to recovery, it is just going to take her little lungs some time to rebound from all of this. The good news is that Reagan is getting used to the nebulizer and we are not needing to fight with her as much as we did earlier in the week to take the treatments. We took the mask of the end and we are using a mouthpiece instead and that really seemed to help.
Okay, I just thought I would update everyone and let you know we are still plugging along.
Now I need to find a few more fun things for the girls to do...... we are beginning to climb the walls. Cabin fever is definitely setting in!!
To all of our China friends....
Happy Chinese New Year!!!
