Day 5 of RSV

No comments
I honestly thought when I took Xay to the pediatrician yesterday that she would tell me he had allergies. So after they weighed him (17.3lbs that's like a pound and four ounces more then last month) she came in and had the nurse do a RSV swab in his nose. She didn't expect it to be positive but she said just to be safe. Yeah well when she went to check there was two minutes left on the test and it was already showing a positive. So the coughing, sneezing, and runny nose turned out to be RSV. Thankfully it isn't a bad case yet but she said today would probably be the worst of him and his cough does seem to be worse but she said not to worry unless his breathing changes. I feel so helpless. He is so sick and the only thing I can do is keep him hydrated. This is the first time he has really been sick and it could take up to two weeks for him to get better...we are on day 5.

I called in work. I couldn't make myself leave him. I know I have to go to classes tomorrow because I have to pass but work isn't as important, heck I would miss school if he was worse.

I am laying here next to him typing this on my phone while he nurses and this is right where I belong. It breaks my heart to not be able to just make him feel better but I can give him what comfort I can.
