Last night around 8 pm DD started coughing. When I say coughing I mean a dry, horrific cough over and over again and would start gagging from all the coughing... My mommy instincts immediately told me something was wrong. She had another fit of coughs around 11 p.m. and as soon as DH got home from work I told him that I needed him to hear her coughs because something was making me feel like it wasn't just a cough.... At about 3:30 this morning DD was rooting and as I was about to start feeding her she began the coughing fits which led again to her gagging and then she went rigid. Her face turned red and she stopped breathing. I thought maybe she was choking so I began hitting her back, as if I were burping her. She began breathing again but I was already frantic, yelling, and DH had already grabbed her from my hands freaking out... We rushed to ER where they contributed it to an upper respiratory infection... We thought maybe whooping cough but there isnt a test to rule that or croup out... So basically we got sent home hours later and have been told to "watch for more symptoms like her turning blue". More coughing fits later, baby and mommy crying were still just hoping its a minor respiratory infection.. We have the humidifier hooked up and are having tons of cuddle sessions... Scary night. I have never been more frightened about anything in my entire life.
