Sick Baby Again

It was only a few weeks ago that Morgan had a cold. That one consisted of a runny nose and a bunch of sneezing...that's about it. Yesterday Morgan started producing a very odd sounding cough. It kept waking her up last night and it's worse today with an added faucet of a runny nose (yuck). She sounds a little wheezy sometimes too. I called the pediatrician's office and she has an appointment for 2:30 pm this afternoon.

Lots of kids have been coming down with RSV (a respiratory virus, can't remember the actual name), pneumonia and croup lately. If it's one of these let's hope we caught it early. She's not struggling too bad yet. She's still got some energy and is pretty much "herself", but I can tell the more frequent coughs are starting to make her tired. She's in bed now, wriggling around a bunch. I'm hoping she can get a nap in before her appointment because it will be too late afterwards.

And if you all are wondering, I will continue the "BIG little" book explanation from Wordless Wednesday as soon as we can get the sick baby on the mend.
