My poor little boy is sick.
Like really sick.
He started sounding congested and having a cough on Friday night. Through the weekend it just got worse and worse and last night he hardly slept due to coughing attacks.
First thing this morning I made an appointment and took Tracker into the doctor.
I have been on edge fearing the worst. Everything completely scares me with him and this has given me some serious anxiety.
After listening to his lungs, looking in his ears all while trying to talk over one extremely unhappy screaming baby. Doctor said Tracker has RSV.
He hooked him up to the oxygen monitor to check his levels which thankfully were fine. Then gave me a laundry list of instructions to care for our sick babe.
We will call tomorrow to check in and see if we need to take Tracker back to have his oxygen monitored again. As long as he can keep that up he can be home but if there is a problem he will need to go to the hospital. I may or may-not have balled my eyes out the entire appointment and have continued to the rest of the day. I haven't put this baby down and have tried my best to keep him comfortable but as the day goes on he is just getting worse and it completely breaks my heart. He is screaming in between coughs and having a hard time eating.
My amazing sister came over to give me some advice and help give him some saline drops and suck out his nose. I just pray we can keep everything under control enough so he doesn't need to go to the hospital. Agh having a sick baby is one of the worst things in the world.
I guess we will officially hibernate in our house until the sun starts shinning and the temperatures get somewhere above freezing. I might brave it sometime around mid-June.
