Coughing, choking, sneezing, oh my

Reagan woke up this morning coughing, I mean really coughing and choking. Not good. She's been very congested and gurgly all day. Sneezing too. You can tell she feels lousy, but she's kept a smile on her face. Poor girl. We took her in to the pediatrician's office this morning and she bumped her antibiotic up to Augmentin. She said there was some fluid in her ears and lots of obvious congestion in her sinuses. We're going to try some Mucinex tonight to see if that helps. Reagan threw up a few times tonight. Each time there was a lot of foam and clear liquid that came up. I don't necessarily think it's because she's nauseous...I think it's because of all the drainage down her throat. Poor thing. Throwing up is SO not fun. We definitely need some prayers for her. I also spoke to the GI doc today and she thinks we can decrease Reagan's feeds down to 40mls/hr for 20hrs a day (about 3oz less than she's been getting). We weighed her today at the pediatrician's office and she was 34lbs (that's another pound since last week)! She's gaining a little too quickly so hopefully this decrease will help. Please keep our sick little one in your prayers...
