I'm so pissed at the daycare right now! And kinda at the poor babies parents too. Last week when I took Emily in there was a baby coughing so hard she was gagging and throwing up and she was doing this the whole time I was there. Obviously something was wrong with her that needed a doctor. I didn't say anything and now I'm kicking myself in the butt. Finally tonight when I went to get her I was told that the baby was confirmed with RSV. So Emily's now been exposed to it for at least 3 days plus the time whenever this baby was exposed to it since it takes a few days to a week for symptoms to show up. GRRRRR. I can't believe that poor helpless little baby went that long before taken to a doctor. And since parents weren't told about it until this afternoon I'm assuming they didn't find out until today.
So all the toys have been taken away and everything that can be washed is being washed but still, I know it'll help but it's kinda too late. I know this is the chance I take when putting her in daycare (I have no choice) but I just don't understand parents sometimes. brickwall.gif If Emily gets sick then I stay home with her. When she had an ear infection I kept her out of daycare for almost a week because I was worried about her and the other babies. You have to think about all the kids not just your own.
I'm so freaked out now. I'm so scared she's gonna get it. I'm going to look up anything I can find and if she starts showing any signs at all we're going to the doctors. Please keep her in your prayers!
Keeping all the kids in the daycare in my T's and P's!
Here's a link to RSV from WebMD. Also, don't get down too hard on the parents of the child with RSV!!!! As a mom of a preemie and having had to have him tested a couple times for RSV -- it can take 24-48 hrs or more to get test results back! Most of the time doctors won't even test for RSV unless pushed and will just blow it off as a horrid cold or bronchitis!
I hope Emily doesn't get RSV! And of course I hope the other babies at daycare are okay as well. It's too bad they didn't get her to the doctor earlier....I'm one of those parents that doesn't run to the doctor for every little sickness (when DH would like to), but I know when something's just not right. And coughing so hard to the point of gagging and vomiting is just not right!
