Turns out Elyse's cold was bronchiolitis and early-stage pneumonia. So much for some sniffles as her first illness. I think she wanted to do something to capture her parent's attention a little more than that! After the rough weekend, we went to the doctor Monday morning and they were pretty concerned about her cough. They did a nose culture and sent us to the lab for a chest x-ray to test for RSV. Let's just say, I'm glad I didn't know what an infant chest x-ray involves. Picture my baby in this contraption:
My girl is much smaller than this baby and did not exactly look quite so content. Poor girl - she did not like that one bit!

She is feeling so very much better, but still has that nasty cough. Poor babe.
