He had a fever starting Friday PM, and a little cough...I though that it was his teeth bothering him, but as the weekend progressed he got worse and worse. He whimpered & cried in his sleep all night last night and by this morning he just coughed and coughed and coughed.
The Dr gave us strick instructions to watch that his mouth doesn't turn a blueish color or that his chest doesn't get sunk in or that he has very rapid breathing. If we see any of those we are supposed to take him to the ER ASAP. He is on a nebulizer every 4 hours and anitbotics. The Dr. said that it could take a while for him to kick this thing...up to a month to loose the cough! UGH!!! My poor little baby.

Oh SAm....RSV is nasty! Joey and Robbie both had it. And, it was awful. The nebulizer treatments definitely help. But, it's soooo hard to hear your little one breathing and coughing like that. Luckily, you caught it and he's being taken care of so that he can get better. He'll be on the priority list for flu shots for many years
I hope he feels better soon. Give him a big squeeze from me. And, KUP as to how he's doing! I'm soooo sorry he's so sick poor little guy.
Those Nebulizer Treatments work wonders!! Cecil's breathing is sooo much better after he has a treatment, but....for those mom's that have BTDT, did your dr give your lo an adult dose of albuteral?? Cecil is WIRED after a treatment, and I know he still doesn't feel good, but he just goes and goes and goes until he falls down exausted.
I'm sorry poor Cecil is so sick Sam. I hope he gets better soon. The nebulizer is wonderful. I had to use one on Haley before Tyler was born. Tyler has already used it also. It kind of makes Tyler space out for a while.
