Quarantined x's 2

Exodus 15:26
...for I, the LORD, am your healer.

Jenna felt really bad this afternoon. She was unusually fussy and cried if I didn't hold her. Each time I laid her down she screamed. I held her non stop for 2 and a half hours. By the time Joe was home from work, she had a fever of 102. We took her back to the doctor and found out she has a double ear infection and RSV.
Her pink eye, congestion and ear infections are affects of the RSV. She is on an antibiotic for her ears. The RSV is viral so there is no medicine for that. We just have to keep a close watch on her. The worst days are supposed to be day 4 and 5, which will be Sunday and Monday. RSV causes alot of mucus and it can be difficult for her to breathe. Depending on how things go she may need steroids and/or breathing treatments.
This is a first for me, Bethany and Joseph never had RSV. Depending on how she feels, we may not be going to Nashville for the wedding. We will just take it one day at a time. We might be ridiculous to even think about going. I'd hate to get another baby sick.
The rest of us are feeling fine. If we were to get RSV it wouldn't affect us like it does her. My dear mother is watching Bethany and Joseph tonight.
Thanks for your prayers for Jenna!!
