It was a crazy day yesterday. I left for the pediatrician at 9 am and didn't get home until almost 4 pm! The visit took a long time and then there was a miscommunication with the pharmacy and the prescriptions so I was playing phone tag all afternoon trying to get the prescriptions filled. Lily was acting tons better with the breathing treatment, but I was dreading nighttime. I was really nervous to have Lily sleep knowing that her coughing would come back. I was also dreading the morning because of the coughing incident that we had earlier that day. It really made my anxiety get the best of me. I was emotional all day after watching Lily struggle to breathe earlier in the day. I asked if Jayden could give Lily a Priesthood blessing before she went to bed. The blessing was very peaceful and I knew that if I exercised my faith in the Lord that I could let Lily sleep soundly and that he would watch over her while we both slept. I had also been sick and was exhausted last night. I slept very deeply and woke up after 4 hours to give Lily her next breathing treatment and she sounded good! After her breathing treatment, we went back to sleep and got a restful night of sleep. This morning Lily woke up with clear breathing and no coughing! Completely different than yesterday. I know that Jayden's blessing helped Lily and I am so grateful to Heavenly Father for helping my baby girl. We go back to the Dr. this morning for a re-check to see where she's at. I'm starting to think that it is just a really bad virus that she has and not pertussis, which I am really happy about. Hopefully the Dr. gives us good new today. We will keep everyone posted!
Even though Lily has been sick, she is still her happy self! She is always so smiley even when she can't breathe. She is seriously the happiest baby.

They gave us a nebulizer to bring home. Jayden was really good at helping Lily with her breathing treatments last night. The seal is the machine, kinda cute!

After having such a long and crazy day yesterday, Jayden walked through the door with these :) I have to brag about him for a minute and say what a wonderful husband and father he is!
