RSV blues

I hate RSV.
Fist Mackenzie got it.
Then 3 days later Wesley got it.
Then they both got ear infections.
Because the super high fevers, constant coughing, running nose, wheezing, etc. wasn't bad enough.

Both have been really really
By far the sickest I have ever seen them.

There's been lots of...


breathing treatments

snot, suctioning and tissues
around here.

My dad came in the house the other day and said that it looked like a hospital ward.

There have also been a lot of
sleepless nights
which leads to naps
whenever and wherever we can get them.

But...the good news is
I think we are finally turning the corner.
It's been a little over a week since RSV butted it's way into our lives and
Mackenzie's finally feeling much better
and hopefully in the next couple of days Wesley will be getting better too.

Ooh, I am so sorry! It's sure rough with both kids sick (we did the RSV gig at our house a couple weeks back, too) Hope they are feeling better soon!

OH MY! Let's hope they get better fast! I am going through the same thing, my eldest son has had pneumonia twice since January, croup last week and a sinus infection this week. My 6 month old just got over an ear infection, cut his first 2 teeth, and is now snotty and wheezy, with what I suspect to be the ear infection again!! I cannot remember the last time we slept - and did I mention that I work a 40+ hour/week job on top of all this! I have decided that naps are mythical things that only happen to good people in fairy tales!!! :) Good luck with your little ones!

Oh your poor babies.
Hey, your breathing treatment looks like a breast pump.
