Carley turned 2 months on November 25. Her two month checkup was on december 2. She now weighs 13 lbs 8.5 oz(97%) 23.5 inches(95%). She gaines 2 pounds 3.5 ounces in 1 month. She's growing like a weed. It's gone by so fast. At her two month checkup I also took Tegan in because she has been coughing really bad. They put her on Albuterol which is medicine that people with asthma may take. The doctor also found a murmur in her heart, but he said no big deal right now, and they'll keep checking it. Carley was a little congested at her appt. but the doc said she sounds ok but just to keep watching her and listening, well we did, and we took her back today 12/3/08 and she is now having to take the Albuterol also. They gave her a breathing treatment at the doctor's office then checked her oxygen level and it was low, so they waited about 10-15 mins and came back. In that 10-15 mins. we were praying so hard that her little body and little lungs would strengthen to get a higher oxygen level, and our Heavenly Father answered our prayers immediately because as soon as they tested her level went from 88 to 93. It needs to be as close to 100 as possible and they take anything over 92, so we are so grateful that it got higher because if it had stayed below 92 she would have been taken to the ER for tests to make sure she doesn't have RSV. So for now she is just on Albuterol every 4 hours for 3 days, and Tegan is on albuterol she takes 2 puffs 3 times a day for a week. This is a very scary time for our family, but we know that our Heavenly Father will watch over us and help us have strength to get through this and we know our girls are so strong that they can overcome their little illnesses.
