Super tense...not happy being sick

Reagan slept well last night and woke up this morning still calm. However, as the morning went on, it was clear she was very agitated. Very bitey, lots of swiping at her face/nose. We're having to keep her arms in restraints to try to keep her from rubbing her poor little nose raw (it's already very red). Poor baby. She's miserable. Her nose is runny (even a little bloody) and her cough is constant and she's just not happy about it! We've had to give her meds off and on today to try and help her sleep. That's the only time she's calm/relaxed. She's so tense, in fact, that she's only had 2 pees all day! One was the one she woke up with and the other we had to use the warm water method to finally get her to go! Tonight I tried to hold her and she was just thrashing and flailing all over the place! I was just trying to hold her to give her a different position (since she's pretty much been in her chair all day today), but it was impossible. Daddy had much more success. He came and picked her up and took her downstairs. He was able to hold her in a more secure way and she finally relaxed a little for the first time all day! She's asleep in her bed right now...hoping she can stay that way. Whew! What a day!
