Little Stinker hasn't been feeling too good lately. She was very congested and had some retractions so we took her to the doctor to make sure everything was ok. The good news: her heart and lungs sound good, so it's most likely the congestion that was causing the retractions. Poor Annabel is so tiny so even a small amount of congestion can make her breathing labored and lead to her lungs getting sick. Mommy has been on 'snot suction detail' for the last four or five days and now the congestion is getting much better, thank God! Both Stinker and Mommy are exhausted and ready for this stinky congestion to go away! Take a look at Stinker, passed out after yet another round of our 'saline drops in the nose/pat the back/suction the nose' routine.
