    Ziva has only been home a month and...

    Advertisements
    is already back in the hospital. She started sounding congested with a little sneezing and cough so I decided to take her to the doctor in case it was something that could get worse. Well they swabbed her nose and a little bit later the doctor came in and said it was RSV She said she was going to send her to the hospital for a couple days to be watched and see if she gets better or worse. She said every baby is different some just get better and some get worse and she wants to be safe. We got to the hospital and they had to draw blood. I thought ok they are just gonna stick her foot and that will be that...NO they had to put a needle in her tiny arm like they do adults. Baby girl cried and screamed because the guy I guess missed the vein and moved the needle around until he found it. OMG it was so freaking heart breaking but as soon as they were done the nurse gave her to me and she instantly stopped crying. She just nuzzled into my chest and went back to sleep. She is doing well right now and sleeping a lot with lots of gas going on

    It just sucks I tried to be as careful with her as possible and she still gets sick. Guess it was bound to happend with two other kids in school. Poor baby girl has a stopped up nose that I have to suck the boogies out and she does not like that. Please send good vibes and prayers that she gets better soon. She is still eating good and having wet diapers so I hope we caught it early. I almost didn't take her to the doctor because I thought it was gonna be nothing but boy am I glad I did.

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Ziva had to stay another night last night and to be able to do that she had to have an IV put in. The nurses came in looked for a vein (took 10 minutes) found one in her hand so they tried and it didn't work. It was the most heart breaking thing to see my baby screaming and nothing I could do to make it better until it was over. They looked for another vein and then were looking at the ones in her head They called for another nurse and she said they may have to use the one in her head. I started to cry so she looked again for a different spot and found one in her foot. She got it in first try but Ziva still screamed and cried which made me cry again. We snuggled and watched some tv after that then she got fluids and was sent home this morning. She had at home breathing treatments and a few other meds. She had a follow up with her doctor next week and I am going to try to get her sisters into the doctor tomorrow or Friday.

    This was snuggle time after the IV:


    Fell sleep (after fighting it) listing to her favorite song "good bye girl" by bread:
