Baby boy was released this morning, and is currently napping with Daddy. Thankfully, he improved over his stay, and the doc said it will be a few more days before he’s 100%. Basically, babies can get these respitory viruses which are wicked because like any cold virus, you can’t really treat/attack the virus, it has to run it’s course. And when it’s in your lungs, it’s a little scary. But while he was there, they gave him no drugs whatsoever, and he was no worse than in the ER the day before where they gave him 3 treatments in 3 hours.
The other tidbit she shared with me today is the it’s not uncommon for kiddos to get a bacterial infection a week or two out after he gets better from this viral infection. With his immune system weakened from the virus, bacteria can then move in and cause ear infections, strep or pnuemonia.
AWESOME. Do they sell Clorox Anywhere by the gallon?
