E had been coughing and coughing and coughing. He was up at 4 am (yikes!) this morning coughing so bad. He couldn’t catch his breath. I finally got him to fall asleep around 6. We did a little Christmas returns and shopping with my mom and the poor thing just wouldn’t stop coughing. I decided it was time to call the doctor.
Thankfully, I took him! When the nurse heard E coughing in the background, she asked how soon I could get there. We were at the doctor’s in less than 10 minutes. The doctor took a listen to his breathing, confirmed he was wheezing (duh! I knew that) and told me he suspected RSV. After a few neb treatments and pulse ox’s, we were sent home with a neb mask and medicine.
I hope he kicks this soon! Poor thing hasn’t napped in days and is exhausted from coughing.
Two good things came out of today:
1. New shoes for E (thanks Mom-Mom!)
2. First carousel ride at the mall!
