On Saturday the 19th of March, Max woke up coughing and wheezing. He was struggling to breathe, and just very uncomfortable. Thomas and I ran him down to the instacare clinic where the doctor determined he had RSV. He sent us home with a nebulizer and instructions for how to make him more comfortable. We were also told to bring him in for a follow up on Monday.
|Soo, sooo, miserable :-(|
|This is how he slept all night. Thomas and I would trade off so we could each get rest.|
|He really does not like this darn nebulizer|
although he usually falls asleep instantly after the treatment.
It just helps him breathe so much better.
We kept the nebulizer for 3 more days, but were instructed to call in each day rather than bring him in. The next day, we got a small glimpse of our happy little boy!
Well, you would think our journey would level out a little after this, but leave it to Marshall to give us another run to the instacare!! He had a small open cut underneath his thumb from pulling off his thumbnail instead of using clippers -genius child ;-) It got infected, and blistered up quite nicely. Look away if you have a queasy stomache.
Well, we are happy to announce that our journey has leveled out. We are all currently happy and healthy and enjoying the prospect of spring!!
And our sweet Max is now healthy as can be!!! We sure love our little monkey!
