    Default RSV! (xp and OT)

    I thought I'd share this here too, for those of you that don't know....

    Cohen has RSV! My poooor baby!!! It's awful! Sunday he started getting really congested. he had what I thought was a "cold"...what he got from the other daycare babies. Monday and Tuesday night he was sooo congested and up all night long. I tried a humidifier, nasal drops, everything. Wednesday morning I knew I needed to bring him in....sure enough as soon as his doctor listened to his chest she sent him for bloodwork and xrays. They did the nasal swab and he tested positive for RSV right away. And he's got some fluid on his left lung . UGH. I feel sooo awful for him. We are doing breathing treatments every 4 hours. They are helping. I'm taking him back to the doc tomorrow to check him again. I've been going to work too....hubby is staying home with him because I only have 5sick days all year...and I've already used 1 1/2. Thank goodness my husband can stay with him and watch him.

    Anyways, it's been a very stressful few days. Sorry I've not been on here much.

    Poor cohen! I hope he feels better soon. My godson got RSV at 6months and ended up spending a week in the hospital. I'm glad Cohen is able to be home with you in a comfortable environment. Prayers for your family.

    I'm so sorry. Alex had it in December but he was much older than Cohen. It's awful to hear babies so sick. Good job keeping an eye on him. Praying for a well baby and a rested mommy!

    I hope he gets better fast! Poor little guy!

    They say that a lot of colds are actually RSV but once we're out of infancy, we handle it better. Natalie had it when she was about 10 months old, but she didn't need any treatments. I sure hope that Cohen won't need treatments for long.
