Brinson saw the peditrician today. She feels that Brinson is doing better, but the coughing is worse. She changed her Albuterol to Xopenex and added a steriod twice a day. Also she gave her something to help with the cough that we can give twice daily. She vomited twice today, I think it's because of all the coughing. Per the MD her lungs sounded "squeaky" and said she didn't want to be grim, but we are in for one long winter season. (She said the first winter for babies especially preemies is pretty rough). She gave me a months supply of the nebulizer meds if that gives you any clue. We were expecting her to get sick, we just hope this episode passes quickly. The good news is that she isnt acting sick at all. She's all smiles for Mommy and Daddy.
I finally ended up going to the doc yesterday and was put on antibiotics also. I rescheduled her eye doc appt tomorrow because I didn't want to put her (or me) thru the trek to the Med Center again tomorrow.
Prayers and thoughts for our Kenster
