Bringing in the New Year with RSV

With the New Year, we've unfortunately invited RSV into our home =( Claire was just diagnosed today after a trip to see Dr. Gulde. He heard crackling on her bottom right lung and then after a nebulizer treatment, he heard it in both lungs so it was off to the hospital for a chest X-ray and an RSV test. Thankfully it's not pneumonia. Our challenge is now to make sure Eden doesn't get it because it would be that much harder on her. Claire was amazing during the whole thing but it might have been the promise of a Sonic grilled cheese and tots!

She had a lingering cough for about three weeks but it got really bad starting Friday. Saturday night she coughed so hard and so much she threw up all over her bed - poor thing and yuck! She really didn't have a fever. 99.2 after she threw up but nothing other than that. Fortunately, the throwing up kept us from taking her to church Sunday morning and lifegroup Sunday night. She really hasn't been around anyone for a long time so hoping she didn't expose anyone else to it.

Hope your New Year is off to a better start!
