I thought RSV season was over?

Brody had another DR. appt yesterday morning at 9:50. He was not doing any better and was still wheezing so bad. So the Dr. decided maybe he should send us over to the hospital to get a chest x-ray and to be tested for RSV. He really didn't think it would be RSV since Brody didn't have any of the symptoms really but the wheezing and RSV season was over. So we headed over to the hospital.... Here is a picture of Daddy and Brody in the hospital room waiting to get an xray...His chest x-ray ended up coming back good but his RSV test came back POSITIVE!!!!!!!!!!!! How did my baby boy get RSV? I had been so careful this winter and so scared of it and I thought we had made it out safe!! The Dr. said he would admit Brody to the hospital if I felt uncomfortable taking him home. But of course I never want to stay in the hospital if I don't have to and they said Brody was probably at the peak ( worst of it) and I had taken care and been doing his breathing treatments so I thought I could handle it. They didn't make him stay because he wasn't really having him of the symptoms, which is what they mainly treat. So they gave him another shot and told me to start his breathing treatments every 4 hours. My poor baby. His wheezing is better but he still has a bad cough and is so irritable. He was up all night and nothing seemed to soothe him. Finally this morning after a few breathing treatments, a good bath, and rocking with mommy he is asleep. I know he just does not feel good. I take him back to the DR. in the morning for another check and I hope the Dr. thinks he is doing better, I'm so afraid he would want to really put him in the hospital if he isn't.



My poor baby boy. I hate that he is sick!!!! Look at him.. he usually just sucks on his paci and lets me do the breathing treatment under his nose but this morning he decided he would be a big boy and put it in his mouth. I have been doing a lot if holding, cuddling, and rocking this precious baby boy to help him feel better!!
Brody turns 5 months old tomorrow and I can't believe it. I guess that is pretty good to go 5 months without getting the first inch of being sick!!
Please get better soon Brody Luke!!!!

Poor guy...and poor mom!

He looks like he's being such a big boy about the breathing treatments. I hope he feels better soon!

I can't imagine what a wreck I would be. I freak out if Blake gets a little warm after his shots!

Good luck.

He is such a big boy for letting you do the breathing treatments either way! Charli Beth just seen his pictures and kept saying "aww he is so cute Momma, can we go play with him?" haha! She is so funny, every little boy she sees she thinks they have to play together and then she cries because they throw dirt in her hair! I'm glad that Brody didn't have to stay in the hospital, those are very scary and long days! I hope he gets better very quick, he will be in our prayers!

I'm so sorry he's having to go through that! Brooklynn had RSV at 3.5 months (it was in January) and it was horrible. She hated her nebulizer treatments! I remeber how bad that chest x-ray was. I'll never forget seeing our tiny baby in that awful plastic tube!
