I think this was the year when I wanted spring to come more than any other year. I usually enjoy winter but not when everyone is sick and your baby has to be in the hospital twice in one month. Poor baby Michael being the youngest he was affected the most. He got RSV right after Andrew's birthday at the beginning of February but after having some albuterol treatments at home with the nebulizer his breathing improved greatly. The follow up doctor visit confirmed that he was doing better and just when we were starting to get back into a sleeping routine he started to struggle breathing again at night. We took him to the ER where the doctor told us that he had pneumonia. It could have been due to the RSV. Not sure about that though. Sweet baby Michael was trooper and after two rounds of antibiotics he was his happy self again. They let us take him home after a day and we continued the antibiotic treatment for eight more days. Two weeks later I got very sick with body aches, chills, and fever. It was the worst I have ever felt with a cold. I said a cold because they tested me for the flu and it came back negative. Anyway my sweet Michael started being sick also and again he struggled breathing at night. Jeremy took him to the ER Saturday at 2am and they told us that he had bronchiolitis and he was going to be hospitalized. We only stayed one night there and because he improved and did great through the night we were home on Monday. Unfortunately for Jasmine and Andrew they got the same virus I had and went through some miserable days with chills and fever also.
We are all doing great now and for that I am extremely grateful because nothing is more important than being healthy. I think we all realize that when our loved ones are sick.
