doctor, doctor, give me the news...


Poor Naomi was hospitalized over the weekend for RSV. We took her in Thursday night and she was released Saturday afternoon. With all this sickness going around, it was inevitable the bug would bite Naomi. She is doing much better and luckily, we didn't have to bring her home on oxygen. Poor kid was put through the ringer though. She hated having a nasal wash and blood drawn. The IV had to be placed in her head since her little chubby arms and legs disguised her little veins. The respiratory therapist suctioned out her nasal cavities a few times, which she also hated. I thought her eyes were going to pop out of her head. The coughing alone was enough to drive anyone crazy! After many prayers, hugs and kisses, she slept and slept and slept.





Dan and Mason came to pick us up Saturday afternoon from the hospital and she was very happy to see him. He hopped on the bed, gave her a kiss and took her toys. She didn't mind though. She continued to smile and stare at him. We are grateful she is home with us now and doing much, much better.

Oh my goodness! The poor thing with the IV in her head...glad that she is doing better and out of the hospital. Hope you are recovering as well -- I am sure it took a lot out of you. (She is so cute by the way!)
