Two different breathing treatments. An antibiotic. Lasix. And a steroid. That's our course of treatment for Morgan Kate's first cold.

Yes, she has a cold. And yes, I have cried three times today. But, that's progress for me. 

Morgan Kate started with a runny nose last Wednesday night. Of course I immediately began to get worried. By Thursday the runny nose was accompanied by a cough and watery eyes. And my worry turned into tears. As of today we have a runny nose, congested cough, watery eyes, ear infection and some fluid in the lungs. Oh brother. We also spent two hours in the doctor's office this morning and we didn't really even have to wait. Most of that time was spent monitoring Morgan Kate's breathing, administering a steroid and taking a breathing treatment.

I know I had promised Part 2 of our beach trip, but I just don't have the energy. It's been an extremely long day. And to top it off I now have a cough, we have a sick dog, my grandmother is at the emergency room with a possible broken arm and it's Travis' 30th birthday. What a birthday for him. Even with a sick baby and a trip to the vet I couldn't let his birthday just pass by. Especially this one. So we grilled steaks for dinner and even blew out some candles on a birthday cake. Just the three of us. Happy Birthday, honey bunny! I love you.

Poor Morgan Kate! I hope she gets over this quickly and I am sure she will. I think it is remarkable she made it this long before her first cold. Good job Mom and Dad!!

Happy birthday, Travis! We're praying for Morgan Kate and all of you!

She will be just fine. She has a great nurse. Happy Birthday Travis!!! If it makes you feel any better we just got back from a LONG road trip to Illinois. Micah fell and pushed back his front tooth after we got home, and Justin just got home from the emergency dentist...he's fine...but what a night!

So sorry to hear that MK has a cold. She has quite a regimine of meds and should be feeling better in no time. Give sweet girl lots of love. That is the best medicine.

Happy 30th Travis. I hope this next year is great.

Sorry your Monday was so rough!! If its any consolation, I'm really impressed that Morgan Kate made it this long before her first cold...good job Mom! It always stinks to have a sick baby though. You wish you could take the cold away from them and have it yourself (no worries, you usually end up with it anyway).

Hope MK begins to feel much better soon! The dog too! Happy Birthday Travis!
Love you all,

Hi Heather! I'm so sorry to read that poor Morgan Kate is sick, and that you are not feeling well either.. but I'm sure you will both recover in just a few days... it's amazing how kids get through sickness in no time..

I can't believe she's already getting her second tooth.. she's going to look sooooo cute... if that's even possible!

I know better than to say this to you.. but I can't help it.. Morgan Kate looks so much like Travis... it's incredible!

I know you probably don't have time to think about this now (or maybe you can't think of anything else haha) but I have been going crazy thinking of a thousand things to do for Agustina's birthday. Have you thought about something for Morgan Kate's Bday?

Anyway, my husband and I wanted to send you guys something, can you e-mail me your address so that I can ship it?

Thanks! Hope you both are feeling better soon!!
