On the Mend

7 Jan



Alex has still been battling RSV.  (I suspect the strep he also had was resolved pretty quickly once he started his antibiotic.)  But RSV… that stuff lingers!  Alex saw the doctor again on Friday, and she noted that he was still wheezing quite a bit.  She decided to take him off his liquid albuterol and have him start using a nebulizer.  Thankfully, he tolerates it well.  I found a Baby Einstein DVD that someone had given us at one of our baby showers.  It’s about animals, which he loves, so it has kept him quiet, still, and riveted to the screen, which makes giving him breathing treatments a breeze.  Thank God for that!

We gave him breathing treatments all weekend, and now I think we may be able to stop them, or at least reduce them.  For the first time in nearly 2 weeks, I haven’t had to clear Alex’s nose first thing in the morning, and he’s not wheezing.  He’s been running all over the living room this morning, cat toy in one hand, wooden spoon in the other, and he’s still breathing well.  We’re finally on the mend!

But, of course, I’m now sick.

    So glad that he is on the mend. Bless his heart, it is a shame he has been sick for so long and over Christmas too. Now Mom is sick……I hope you feel better very soon.

    I too am recovering…I learned yesterday I had shingles. It hurts a lot.

    Oooh, I’ve heard shingles are miserable! So sorry you’re having to endure that!
