I would Start her on antibiotics if there is fluid in her lungs.....Tylan 200 or Nuflor and B complex,...lay her on your lap and make a tent out of a towel or blanket over her and use a blow dryer to warm the air...get her warm and keep an eye on her temp...

Rub, rub, rub! I second the antibiotics. If you don't have them, drench her with fresh garlic, as much as you can get down her, until you can get some antibiotics.

Poor baby...It is 1 cc per 25# Im assuming she is maybe 5-6 pounds at best..so I think 1/4 cc every 12 hours for 5 days...
B complex I would give her the same...

Keep an eye on her temp...taking it every hour or so...be kind and use Vaseline;)

Lay her across Your lap with her head pointed down. Then do hard compressions across her back and chest.

I am sorry that happened to you guys, but am very thankful for your husbands fast actions! I hope your baby does well and recovers in no time. I would add giving a little bit of Vitamin C to the mix (powdered vitamin c just a good pinch once a day). I am a strong believer that Vitamin C can do so much good in addition to the antibiotics. Everyone gave you wonderful advise and I hope she does well in the days to come.

Thx all! I gave hubby a huge hug and kiss ( on cheek !!! ) also asking what ever made him do mouth to mouth! For me that would be second nature I am just a freak like that for him mmm not so much he said all he could see was me freaking out blaming him!!!! Lmao I would never! On the bright side he knows how much my kid mean to me and he thinks I have a little empty nest syndrome going on since both our teenage children have moved out in the lady 6 months and I have been a little unstable!
My little girl is still doing well sleeping alot I am sure do to the stress of the evening I don't hear any more fluid gurgling around so hopefully she will be all set with a few days of antibiotics, vitamins, & snuggles
Thank you everyone for the great advise and prayers!!!
