So if you’ve read my last post, you’d know how fed up I’ve been with all the germs which has literally knocked down our entire family! Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, Aidan’s cold took a turn for the worst on Saturday morning and was admitted to hospital. It was very scary to see the Doctors reaction when she listened to Aidan’s lungs. She said he had a severe case of Bronchiolotis and a test confirmed he was infected with the RSV virus. I remember reading about RSV in Cindy’s blogpost recently and immediately knew that we would be at the hospital for a while. The effects of RSV are worse the tinier baby is and it hit Aidan pretty badly.
Well, we still here but he is doing SO much better and we will hopefully be home tomorrow if he’s condition remains stable as it has been for the last 24hrs. He received physio therapy , oxygen treatment and a saline decongestant throughout his stay here, no antibiotics – as it would have no effect on the virus. My poor baby 🙁
To add to this, my hubby got sick too and Alyssa woke up one night throwing up all over poor Daddy! She is probably so anxious from all this drama and not having Mom at home. This week has literally been a nightmare!!I miss Alyssa so much and really can’t wait to spend time with her.
My stay here at the hospital has certainly been an experience. The continuous sound of little ones crying is torturous and just makes me want to burst out in tears too. The nurses are so caring though – I really look up to them for taking such good care of the kids, especially my little boy. He is so little and they just gave him that extra bit of care and attention, for which I am grateful.
I just cannot wait for the doctors ok already, so we can be in our way! But I’d rather have him 100% ready than having to come back… But there is really no place like home xxx
