The many faces of RSV

RSV is really annoying. Praise God it hasn't become worse and I'm hoping that it won't. I just tortured him again by sucking out his nose again, which is HORRIBLE! ugghh... restraining your child should never have to be something you have to do! It's awful! But his doctor said that we have to do it, so we do...

I don't think that it has spread to his ears or chest. I'm going to take him back to the doctor this upcoming week to check in with her again and make sure that it's not getting worse. Honestly I think it's getting much better! The snot secretions have become a lot less... though his cough seems worse. But it's one of those phlegmy coughs from drainage and not a wheezy cough from his chest. His birthday party is on his birthday (the 18th) and we don't want him to be sick then!

I took these pictures a little while ago of his sick little self. He's so precious.

Sweet boy! Hope he feels better.
We did Lauren's party 23 days early, and celebrated yesterday! It was so much fun.
Hope you guys have fun too!
Love you!

Keep a suckin'!! The only thing worse than sitting on them to suck their brains out is what they do to them in the hospital if the RSV gets worse.

Those ENT people scoff at such a pitiful little blue bulb. No, they have a giant sucking machine ... and they like to show up every two hours ... round the clock. I hate them. :)

Makes the blue bulb look like a spa day. So, suck away, my friend! SUCK AWAY!

I hate it when babies are sick! I keep praying that Eli won't get any worse and that he'll start to feel better soon!
