All I want for Christmas is a nebulizer

Harper and I have spent the last 5 hours at the doctor, pharmacy, and on the hunt for a nebulizer. She has the dreaded rsv virus and my poor girl is not feeling too hot. Her lungs were wheezy so she got a breathing treatment at the doctor's office and we have to continue giving her treatments every 4 hours for the next 3 days, including waking her up at night. She sounds a million times better after the treatment but I absolutely hate giving them to her. It's definitely not fun holding down a screaming baby while forcing a mask over her face...even when you know it's for their own good. Here's my poor exhausted baby girl after she finally gave up the fight:

Speaking of viruses, our laptop is dying a slow and horrible death from the one it was infected by last week. I have lots of pictures to share from our Christmas weekend with Rick's side of the family, but until our computer is fixed I'm limited to blogging with my phone (this is my first attempt so we'll see if it even works or not)

Please pray for Harper to get better soon. It's so hard to see your baby sick.

Poor Harper... that picture is so sad! And BTW, how are you blogging from your phone and posting pictures? Are you using a special app?

No! That sucks big hairy monkey balls.

Sorry, but I've been there, LOTS of times, and it does. It really, truly does.

Did you find a nebulizer? We have one if you can't get your hands on one.

It isn't any fun at all to have a sick baby, but forcing them to endure breathing treatments is really horrible. I hope once she's over it, she'll never need it again. All three of mine have had breathing treatments at one point or another, and Christian will forever need them or inhalers, or a combination of the two.

Praying for you!
