Lily's First Virus?

Well, we won't be traveling anywhere this weekend. We had a delightful day of firsts yesterday- the first time Lily threw up on her Mama and Baba at the doctor's office without any extra clothes... the first time Lily got to be out in public with only a pull-up on... the first time we got to wear throw up clothes for a few hours... Lily's first diarrhea also took place yesterday evening...

We could not wait to get home and take showers! Bless Lily's heart- she handled the whole situation really well. She just kept pointing in her mouth with a horrible expression. She would say, "Mama- Baba- (and point in her mouth)- I wanna go."

When we finally were able to leave, the doctor said that she probably has a virus that will last 4 or 5 days. However, it could just be allergy-related with all of the snottiness, congestion, and coughing. Who knows? So, we got 3 types of medication to cover everything. We also have to take Lily back as soon as this passes for chest x-rays, etc. to find out why she is coughing excessively every night when she is sleeping. Could be asthma or just the fact that she is Asian. She may need her tonsils and adenoids out soon. The good news is that her bloodwork came back perfect. So, that made us feel a little better.

Please say a prayer for Lily. I want her to feel better as soon as possible.

Oh bless her heart! (and yours!) I remember the first time this happened to Savannah. Unfortunately (and not to worry you!) but Adam also got and then me. Steve ran to the store and got plastic gloves and a mask and managed to escape it. It was like World War 3 in our house. I never cleaned so much after it was all said and done! I hope it is a speedy virus and she heals quickly and the you all are back to normalcy very soon!!!
