Elle was in the hospital

Elle and Shevaun have had a tough week this week. We found out on Monday, at Elle's two week checkup, that Elle has RSV. The doctor immediately sent Shevaun and Elle to the hospital, and he made Elle wear an oxygen mask on the way from his office to the hospital. She was there until late Wednesday when they finally let us take her home, but she is still hooked up to monitoring equipment and she has to wear an oxygen tube still. Not so fun. I have placed some pics below, they aren't on flickr, so just click on each pic to see a larger version.

Isn't she so cute, even with her oxygen tubes.

Here's a pic of Shevaun holding the babe.

Another one of her just looking at me.

That is soooo sad but she still looks happy! Glad that you got to go home. How much longer will she be on oxygen? She is looking more and more like her daddy...but who knows they change a lot.xoxoxo

oh, that stinks. i hope that she is doing better. It's hard having a baby this time of year, it seems that everyone I know who has a winter baby ends up in the hospital with RSV.
She is such a cutie though!
