Beach Babe

Here is a cute picture a friend took of Carys hanging out at the beach watching her Dad play volleyball with his friends this last Sunday. The day before she and her Mom flew down to Maryland for a couple weeks. Carys is on a medical referral while she is down there to see a lung specialist. She has been sick for about 7 weeks now and was not getting better. The poor kid hasn't been able to sleep through the night for quite some time because of her coughing. It wasn't until last week that the Pharmacy got a stronger cough medicine for infants that actually helped her. Chest X-rays indicated her lungs have inflammation and tests showed her oxygen saturation levels have dropped. The Doctor said it is most likely a viral infection in her lungs or asthma.
However sick and tired she is, it still doesn't seem to dampen her spirits. She's such a happy little girl.

Please let us know how she is. She sure is cute laying there with her legs crossed. Looks just like she knows what's going on!

The specialist thinks she has asthma. She has to go on steroidal inhalers for a while to see what happens.
