I've been meaning to update, but....well....I've had 2 sick kids. Kanyon is MUCH better. Other than a pretty steady stream of snot out of his nose and a lingering congested cough, he's feeling like his normal self again. He had 2 bad days Tuesday and Wednesday, but started improving Thursday and was pretty normal by yesterday. He was a very very sick boy, but we are proud of his lungs! They have stayed clear!
Quinn was a few days behind Kanyon and had his worst days Thursday and Friday. I took him back to the Dr. because I was hearing some crinkling in his breathing and he was "pulling" a little while he was breathing. The Dr. gave us an antibiotic (preventative in case of pneumonia) and an oral steroid. I can't believe my tiny 2 month old is having to have all of this medicine, but we're thankful for anything that helps. As of today, I think he's starting to feel better. He is actually opening his eyes, his breathing sounds much more clear, and he's eating better. He was SOOOOOOOO sick Thursday and Friday. It was horrible. His breathing was shallow and he was pitiful, he didn't want to eat, and his voice was gone he was so hoarse. We've slept in the recliner the last 2 nights with the humidifier right near us. I sat him down in his swing today to change clothes and he stayed in the swing for about 10 min. That is the longest he's been out of my arms in 3 days. He would just start coughing if he wasn't upright. He still has a nasty cough and he's for sure not over it, but I do think we're on the downhill slide.
My mom was able to stay all week and there is NO WAY I could've made it through this week by myself. NO. WAY. We've done lots of laundry and we're about to start the decontamination process in the house. We will Clorox EVERY surface and toy in this house. Our Dr. told us the bad thing (among other things) about this RSV business is that you don't build up immunities against it so you can get it over and over.
Not sure when the boys will be able to be around other kids. Kory and I still have it as well, so for now, we're hiding out at our house! Thanks for your prayers for the boys (and us taking care of them!). We're hoping we're DONE with this!
