(renamed "tender loin" by snarky due to his recent "skinny-ing")
gets this beauty breather every 4-6 hours
at 4am i sat rocking my son in our lazy boy.
this was our second trip to the recliner of the night.
he was snuggled up into my neck.
i didn't sleep a peep last night.
the only time i felt remotely tired was when he was snuggled up with me.
i could hear his breathing.
little darth vader, that's what i kept thinking.
a week ago i did not know what rsv was.
i'd heard about it.
i remember the doctor saying,
"keep him isolated for the first 12 weeks, we don't want him getting rsv."
so this year, i wasn't even thinking about it.
the pork loin turns 1, the big 1!, 1 week from today.
sure, it was on the news,
"rsv is bigger than ever this year."
that's what the "healthy living report" has been saying.
but for some reason i just wasn't worried.
i mean come on, i'm working on not being that overly paranoid first time mom;-)
i surely thought it was never something my child would get.
i knew it was "not good."
there's that pesky term again.
well, my child has it.

Respiratory syncytial virus infection: usually called RSV, is a lot like a bad cold. It causes the same symptoms. And like a cold, it is very common and very contagious. Most children have had it at least once by age 2.
A virus causes RSV infection. Like a cold virus, RSV attacks your nose, eyes, throat, and lungs. It spreads like a cold too, when you cough, sneeze, or share food or drinks.
the tender loin skipped his cereal this morning.
a feat which we all know is out of the norm.
the doc says these are the times he loves those "25 pounders."
hey, a new name!
he's a quarter pounder;-)
geeze, i love this kid!
i hope i don't give him a complex.
so we're headed to the doc again today.
the wheezing is up and the breathing treatment didn't seem to help.
jess tells me i need to give it at least one more try to see if it really helps, so the jury's still out.
the amazing jess was at my front door at 7:30am to help with brennan's breathing treatment.
she's a nurse.
i'm convinced, she knows everything there is to know.
bless you, jess.
thanks for all of the love.
you make us smile:-)
for future reference,
ignorance is bliss.
avoid webMD and alike sites when researching your child's illnesses.
you'll feel much better just knowing what the doctor has told you.
