Sick Baby

Lucy has RSV. I’m sure glad I went with my gut and had Joe take her to the doctor today to have her congestion and coughing checked out. I thought the coughing was caused by dust from our ceiling collapse (more on that later), but I guess I was wrong. She hasn’t eaten much in the last day or so, something I chalked up to the trouble breathing through her nose, but I guess that’s one of the symptoms. She’s also been wheezing. So, she’s on steroids twice a day and every third bottle needs to be Pedialyte. If her breathing gets any worse, the doctor said we need to take her to the children’s hospital in Atlanta. Just the mention of that has me freaking out. I know that RSV is common, but that doesn’t really make me feel much better right now.

    It may be common, but it’s YOUR child going through it ~ so it’s scary. Hope she feels better soon!

    I guess I’m the not so bright one here, but what is RSV? I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of it, or I’m too tired to figure out what that stands for! It sure sounds scary though. And I agree with Lisanne, no matter how common it is, it’s something you’re child is going through & it’s definitely scary!
