Going to the doctor
Elaina has had a low grade fever since last night, so we're off to the doctor. Her home nurse was here yesterday afternoon, and her temp was good and she said that her lungs sounded clear. (She weighs 10 lbs now!! - yay!!) Sweet baby looks like she doesn't feel good though. Her eyes are red and weepy and she is coughing and sneezing. Elaina still has some upper respiratory congestion (sinus, etc.) so I'm hoping it's not something that will send her back up to Primary Children's. Yesterday she was pulling at her face. She keeps trying to pull her oxygen out of her nose, not to mention her NG tube. I'm almost wondering if she doesn't have an ear infection. Maybe it will just be a normal baby thing instead of something major this time. On a good note, her feedings have been raised to 82 cc's (that's almost 3 oz) every 3 hours. She is still having problems keeping it down, so I'm going to be talking to the doctor about that today while I'm there. Wish us luck! I'll post again later once I know what's up!
