And MORE adventures in the ER...

This time it was Jack. He has continued to feel yucky all week long, and we finally took him to the pedi on Friday where they said he had a cold and put him back on Albuterol for his wheezing. By Friday night his breathing had become really labored, so Mommy and Daddy packed him off to the ER. I think we normally would have rode it out with the nebulizer, but I just feel so paranoid after Katie ended up in the hospital last time. So after a few hours of waiting in the ER he ended up testing positive for RSV. Sigh. He had RSV last winter, as well, and we were really hoping to avoid it this year by keeping him on the Pulmicort when he developed a cold, but that didn't seem to work. I swear, if there's a bug within 25 miles of Jack, he will catch it.

We are keeping Katie quarantined in the master bedroom until Jack starts feeling better. Which means Mommy is in exile a lot of the time, but at least she's getting some sleep! We will keep Jack out of daycare for a brief "vacation" while we try to catch a break for a short time. I really hope this winter won't be as bad as LAST winter was! Thank goodness Nana is still here visiting -- I don't know what we would do without her!
