Well, Hailey got bad again last night.
I was up with her at about midnight, and she was having a hard time nursing. Couldn't catch her breath again. So I brought her downstairs and tried the cool air from the freezer. That didn't do too much, so I just walked and attempted to bounce her for a few minutes to see if she would settle down and go back to sleep.
After about half a minute of that both girls upstairs started screaming because I left them alone. Oh brother.
I called my dad and Yuli again and they were over within a few minutes. (Of course everything has to happen at night while Matt's gone, right?!)
We decided she wasn't bad enough to bring back into emergency, so we all went back to my parents house, and the girls slept with Yuli. I stayed with Hailey on the couch and she seemed alright.
My dad left for work around 4:30am, and almost immediately after that she had a nasty coughing fit that left her almost completely breathless. Keep in mind there is no vehicle that I could use to take her in if I had to at this point. I settled her down, and she went back to sleep.
Throughout the night she had little episodes of bad wheezing, but they tapered off. But eventually, by the time my mom got home, we didn't want to wait any longer. She was wheezing pretty heavy and it wasn't going away. We figured a 40 minute long car ride was too long at this point, so we called an ambulance. They were there in minutes with ventolin on hand, so I'm glad we called them.
The doctor that saw her today was really surprised that the steroid they gave her on Sunday didn't seem to work, so ordered a chest X-Ray. That came back normal, and they gave her another steroid treatment. About 2 hours later he looked at her happy little self and sent us home once again.
He said that it's possible that she could have a trachea infection, but seeing how good she looked he said it was very unlikely. It would be a toxic thing and she would be really sick.
SO, we're home again. Matt's mom brought over a cool mist humidifier just now, so I think that will help big time tonight.
I think the stuffiness in our room has a lot to do with the trouble she had last night. The night she did so well, she slept downstairs with me, so I'm thinking that's it. We'll see how she does tonight! Wish us luck!
