Sick, sick, sick

Sage is sick.
It started out as a minor cold-she had a pretty stuffy nose and sounded strangely similar to Darth Vadar at night. Within the last 3-4 days it seems to have gone down in her chest though instead of improving. She's coughing, wheezing, having difficulty breathing and still pretty snotty. Yuck, yuck, yuck.
She only got about 4 hours of sleep last night because she was literally gagging herself awake from all of the coughing and snot. I've been trying to use saline, suction her nose, hot showers, humidifier, vicks vapor rub for babies, etc but the poor kid still can't breathe. She has even slept in her bouncy chair a couple times or with us because everytime she lays down in her crib she can't breathe.
My mother was in town over the weekend and we took her to the doctor yesterday. Doctor didn't give her any type of formal diagnosis but since she is getting worse and not better she was put on Amoxicillan. Doc didn't want it turning into pneumonia or croup. She's been on the medicine a little over 24 hours now so hopefully she gets a better night tonight!

Even though she's sick she had a fun Halloween!
Here are some pictures:

Cutest pumpkin ever :)
