Dear RSV, I hate you.......

I am so sorry I have been MIA this week....and completely SLACK in posting the winner for my giveaway!!!!!
Last week the Georgia belle had been fighting what we thought was a bad cold....and we thought we were on the mend until it went to her chest. For all you mamas out there, you know the heartbreaking sound of your child not being able to breathe. So we took her in, and sure enough, it was RSV. I immediately broke down because as a mom all of the what if's entered my head....should I have brought her in sooner? Would that have made a difference? I feel like I did the best I knew how to do at that moment in that it started out as just a cold. And Raymond and I have determined NOT to be the parent that runs to the doctor every time. I just can't live my life holding my breath every time she sneezes. We have been so fortunate that she has only had one cold and she's almost 8 months, so it was bound for something like this, I guess!
So we've been doing the breathing treatments- which by the way- are PURE torture for a child. Thank you Dr. Delaney, my baby hates me now! I have had to go online and refresh my memory on every lullaby and nursery rhyme known to man and while Raymond retrains her and gives her the breathing treatment, I sing and dance and kiss her forehead and wipe away the tears. We have finally got her back sleeping through the night, so Step 1 in the right direction! Except, with much warning from the doctors, Raymond and I have come down with some of the same symptoms....ahhhhh!!!! We need a coffee break from life right now.
So- that's my sob story of the day. Wish us much healing and strength as we get Georgia back to 100%!!!

We're off to Rock Hill this weekend for Raymond's brother's wedding so we will have many pictures and I will post my winner of my giveaway this weekend!!!!
