Well she did it again. Her heartrate dropped and she stopped breathing so they had to breath for her. She has had about every test done and no one can figure out what is wrong. X-ray showed a lot of gunk in her chest though, so they ruled out RSV and are thinking she just has a nasty virus that she is fighting. If she doesn't have anymore episodes today they will probably let her come home back on all her monitors and oxygen. Keeping our fingers crossed.

Well, I'm glad that it is good news on the whole Rebecca but how are your nerves holding up? I would think that all her accessory stuff is enormously intimidating. Do you have any help?

no help here. It's me, my 3 other kids, the baby and all her stuff. I think I really need a vacation or at least some time by myself so I can go shopping for some much needed baby stuff. Anastacia is doing better but still really sick. She's on a ton more oxygen than before. I get to take her to the pediatritian Tuesday so at least I'll be able to get out of the house.
