BOTH of the boys have RSV! Kanyon has been feeling bad for a few days and it kept getting worse. We were scheduled for Quinn's 2 month well check today so we took them both in. qsp started getting horse and congested last night so I figured he had it too. We suspected RSV because its kinda going around at our church. So, the Dr. confirmed that they BOTH have it. I'm so upset, frustrated, discouraged, sad, annoyed, and scared. Ever since klp started acting like he had a cold I kept them away from each other and even changed shirts when I held each one, doing my best not to cross-contaminate them. I didn't want Quinn to catch his cold (or so I thought) I think klp is gonna feel better in the next couple of days, but this is always scary for a kid with Chronic Lung Disease. He's had a rough 2-3 days! qsp on the other hand is just getting started and they said that the younger they are the harder it is on them. I am so worried about Quinn. He's just too young to be this sick. He is horse and congested and has a cough. So far no fever and no wheezing (both which we have to immediately go to the Dr. for if they start to happen). We are supposed to start them both on breathing treatments today, so hopefully that will help them both.
This is particularly frustrating because I've tried so hard not to be super germ paranoid this year. This is my first winter since Kanyon was born to be "out and about" and not on house arrest. I've tried really hard to wean myself off of the mindset I was in for 2 years to avoid ALL germs at ALL costs. I really wanted to be balanced about it. Having a baby in the winter made this even harder because while I was feeling like Kanyon could handle sickness, I now had a tiny baby to keep healthy. Well, I'd say I FAILED my first winter out. Its gonna be hard for me not to go into hiding until March once we get through this. I'm going to have to start over in my germ paranoia rehab.
This probably goes without saying, but please keep these boys in your prayers. I'm pretty sure me and Kory both have it right now too (no big deal to grown ups). My mom is here (we'd already planned on her being here for my shower and to keep klp while I took qsp to his appointment) so this has been a LIFE SAVER. So far, she doesn't have it. Pray that these boys can fight this thing and that little Quinn's doesn't get much worse and that pneumonia doesn't happen. I'd like to keep him OUT of the hospital!
We'll keep you posted. THANK YOU for your prayers!
