Ringing in the New Year with Sickness

31 Dec

This guy, my little Clark Kent, the kid who preferred a Swiffer duster to any of the toys he received for Christmas, is sick.  Really, really sick.  It started with a cough.  Then came the runny nose.  Wheeziness.  Fever.  Symptoms kept stacking up.  I was going to take him to urgent care on Sunday, but then he was better.  Only the runny nose seemed to remain, and he was playing hard.  But then that night, the fever spiked, he was wheezing when he breathed, and he’d lost his appetite.  The appetite thing worried me the most, as this boy loves to eat!

I took him to the doctor this morning.  Poor baby tested positive for both strep and RSV.  He has three prescriptions now, and we’re working hard to get him to drink enough and try to get well.  Not exactly the way we’d hoped to spend New Year’s Eve.
