Just when we thought we had conquered this nasty winter sick season, my poor little Bowen got sick again. I took him to Dr. G thinking he just had some upper-respiratory something, a runny nose and congestion. I was wrong. RSV. Those 3 little letters every mother DREADS hearing. He was on about day 3 or 4, we figured. He didn't ever run fever, although, I could tell he didn't feel very good. Dr. G told us to do breathing treatments every 4 hours and that it would get worse before it got better. She was right. It did get worse. He has been up 6 or 7 times every night. Not fun. I think Crockett got it too, but luckily, it doesn't affect him in the same way. So every 4 hours, one after the other, we do breathing treatments. And we find many ways to occupy our time ALL DAY LONG. It is not so easy when you can't get out of the house at all! After a few cough-filled nights, I think we are almost back to normal. Crockett went back to school Wednesday and I think by next week, Bowen can venture back out. It has been a VERY long month and I have gone a bit crazy, but Chris, my mom and Les have all helped me tremendously! It is hard when I can't get my babies around anyone else's babies! It is no fun with sick kiddos but I am always reminded how fortunate we are for mostly-healthy babies. Now, GO AWAY SICKNESS!!!
