I've been told multiple times now that I need to update the blog, so here goes. Hope has been pretty sick. She came down with something about 3 weeks ago, but it seemed very mild, especially in comparison to Andy and Mary. It took a turn for the worse this past weekend. She started having coughing fits that were so bad they would make her throw up. Her oxygen needs started getting greater and greater. She has been to the pediatrician 3 times and the emergency room once. She has not needed to be hospitalized, but she's certainly scared us. I'm hoping she's over the worst now, but I guess we'll see. Her chest doesn't sound quite so much like a bowl of rice krispies today and she's down from needing 1.5 liters of oxygen during the day to needing 3/4 - 1. (She normally doesn't need anything during the day and is on 1/8 liter at night.) She's weighing in at 11 lbs now, down from her high of 11 lbs 5 oz. There is a bright spot in all this though. Hope rolled over 4 times on Tuesday from her belly to her back. Way to go, sis!
