Home from the ER

Thankfully, we are now home from the ER.  We thought that there was a good chance we'd have to stay at the hospital.  The chest X-ray did not show pneumonia and instead the doctors suspect that Isabella has some sort of viral infection, probably the same one that Nathaniel has, who has been sick the last couple of days.  Isabella is now on oxygen at home to help her breathe a little easier.  Since her body is working hard to fight off the viral infection, she has extra mucous in her throat which is making it difficult for her to breath.  In addition, the constant coughing tires her out.  We hope that the extra oxygen will just be temporary until her body can fight off whatever viral infection she has.

And even though Isabella has yet another tube sticking out of her, at least we're home now, after quite a scare earlier today.
