Little Friends

Hello again! I just wanted to show you all the pictures of Olivia and her friend Sophia from her daycare. Miss. Angela took some cute pictures of them on their deck swing. (Olivia is half asleep in a couple of them!)

And on another, separate note. I wound up taking Olivia to the doctor's this morning because she hasn't been able to get over her cold (it's been about 2 weeks) and her coughing is just getting worse. Well, they think she has croup, which is a virus that affects the throat and larynx. So they gave her an oral steroid at the office to help prevent her throat from swelling up. That is the big worry - if her breathing sounds whistle-y, then we have to get her into the bathroom with a hot steamy shower running so that the steam can open her up - if that doesn't work, then we may have to take her into the Emergency room! Fun! So, hopefully the steroid will do its job and we won't have to worry about that! AND if the cold doesn't clear up by the end of the week, they are going to call in an antibiotic for her to help fix/prevent a sinus infection. So, at least she seems to be feeling ok most of the time. She still is really playful and seems to be doing fine. (other than when she get into a coughing fit!).
Other than all of that, we are doing fine. We'll keep you updated on how she is doing.
