Olivia has a super snotty nose right now (not the first time). This snot is what I assume ectoplasm would be like. When she sneezes, it shoots out of her nose then slingshots back onto her face (which she REALLY doesn't like). It's not drippy at all, just very sticky - I can literally pull it off of her face in one "piece". I do not profess to be an expert on snot, so I don't know if this is what all baby snot is like or if this is because she has CF. Months ago, we had to go to the ER for sinus congestion and they recommended we invest in a Battery-powered Nasal Aspirator(which we bought from Walmart for $19.95)
Anyway, she has been coughing all night and tons in the morning. She isn't getting good nights sleep whenever her nose is like this, which in turn has me staring at the monitor all night. If it gets bad, I go in an give her a Xopenex treatment just so she can breathe easier, but all the gunk is still settling in her chest. She isn't breathing well when she sleeps or eats, which can obviously be a problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to help her?
