Its been over a week...

and she is still sick...YUCK!! I mean, who knew that "Croup" could last so long! I posted here about Avery not feeling good and she is STILL not feeling good! It all started last Thursday morning (well it started long ago, but the latest sickness was last Thursday) when we were driving to Denise's house. She had this horrible cough, like she was getting chocked on something! I went ahead and left her at Denise's house and told her that she was coughin alot! I picked her up and she seemed okay Thursday night...just the usual fussy, cranky, whiny that she has been for a week! All through the night she had that same cough and Friday morning when I got her out of bed, she had 102 fever...UUUGGGGHHH! The day never starts good when your child wakes up with fever that high! Ray HAD to be in Jackson for a meeting, and I HAD to go to work...Our Office Manager was out and no one else in the office knows how to operate all of the computer stuff...SO I get both of them in the car and you can tell that Avery is miserable...I ask Denise if I can leave her for just a few hours to get things at work in order and then I would come back and take her to the doctor! I get her to the pediatrician and she says, "Yes, It looks like she has viral croup, lots of liquids and alternate Motrin/Tylenol" UUUGGGHHH! I am not for medicating my child when its not necessary, but it is so frustrating to have a child that is that sick and not get anything to help her! So we leave there and head back to my office to finish out the day and then out to the country! We had large plans for the weekend...none of which came to pass because of my sick baby girl! Chad (my brother) met me in Michigan City (Mississippi that is!) to pick Brenly up so she could spend the night with Baylee (and watch the Hannah Montana Concert



...in which she feel asleep half way through!) Sunday we were going to get up and try to go to church...Avery hadn't have fever for 24 hours (so the doctor said she wasn't contagious!) However on the way to church she gets chocked and starts coughin real hard and throws up everywhere! UUUGGGHHH!!! So we get home and decide that it would be best for us to stay put for the day! Chad drops Brenly off with Nonna (Jenni, my cousin) so that she can got to swimming lessons this morning! Ray stayed home with Avery again today and I am praying that she will start feeling better! I Hate it when my babies don't feel good, esp. when it lasts this long!

I am so sorry Kim!! I so know how it is with a coughing baby!! Gabrielle's horrible cough is back, but we never know whether to blame it on her lung disease or what?! Maybe she has what Avery has?? And it just makes her lung disease even worse?!?!

I hope Avery kicks it soon and starts feeling better!!
