Zoey's First trip to the ER...

Yesterday afternoon just as I put zoey down for a nap, I updated Facebook with a status of "a lazy Sunday afternoon... i love it"... then God laughed in my face...

Zoey woke up coughing and crying because she threw up while trying to nap.. pregnancy and baby throw up.. not a good combo. She coughed pretty much the rest of the afternoon and had a low grade fever.

SO needless to say she didn't nap.. so at 8 we put her down in our bed, after another throwing up incident, and almost immediately fell asleep, after a couple of hours, she was still coughing, having trouble breathing, and spiked a fever of 102.5.

We called the Dr. and she said that 90% of what they are seeing is RSV. So we decided to be safe rather than sorry and take her to the ER. We got there at midnight, and left around 5:30 am! After a chest x-ray, they said she had RSV.

So now we are home for the week, she seems to feeling better.. hopefully she will be after a bottle of tylenol and some TLC.

Poor thing, that is the pits. Hope she recovers quickly.
