Emma woke up coughing

Despite our efforts to keep her separate from the other kids, she still woke up coughing. Please join us in praying that it's just a result of her ongoing congestion (she has had that a while but hasn't had a cough) and not the virus that the other two are hosting! Will update later.

  2. make sure you ask about her sleeping tilted up a bit (head and chest raised) so that doesn't settle in her chest. Do you have a mister she can sit by to keep it running thin? I am so worried.

  3. Amy- unfortunately this kid is ALL OVER so tilting her mattress will only result in her head being down with her feet in the air! I do have a humidifier in there for overnight and nap times. She's not had a runny nose AT ALL today, which I think is weird since she's had one for about 8 weeks. But... the cough. We'll keep an eye on her!

  4. Hi Meredith, whenever PJ is congested, he sleeps in his bouncy seat. It's the only way I've found to elevate him (that or his car seat). Have tried to elevate his matress, and he just rolls and slips to a heap at the lowest point. He sleeps good even strapped into his bouncy. (A gift from Eileen, which has turned out to be PRICELESS!)

  6. We will be praying for Emma. She definitely does not need to be sick right now. Hope all the other kids are doing better. Give them all a kiss from Grandma.
