3 Sick Little Piggy's

1st Sick Little Piggy:
Tyler has had the normal cold which was more than likely RSV since both the girls tested positive for it. He started last Thursday and so now it has been 10 days of snot and coughing. Thankfully he is older and knows how to blow his nose and doesn't require really any extra care than a normal day would require. He has improved tremendously in the last couple of days which is good because his first T-Ball game is Monday night....Go Dodgers!!!!

Sick Little Piggy #2: Poor Haylee is very sick! She was the 1st of the 3 to come down with the RSV. I had her Well Child appt on Friday (2 days ago) and since she wasn't getting any shots it was okay to bring her with the runny nose and cough. So everything looked fine, chest sounded clear and ears looked good. They went ahead and did the RSV test on her to make sure although we were sure she had it. And yes it was positive! Saturday morning she woke up with a fever and was vomiting. I thought oh no, she must have got something else at the doctor's office. At about noon I got her up from a nap and she was burning up. I tried to take her temperature but as many of you know with Haylee that was difficult to do. She fought me and fought me but by the timed she knocked it out it was 103.2 and it hadn't beeped yet. I was afraid it was 104 or close to it so we decided to take her to the ER. They basically said it's just a viral thing and gave us Zofran (sp?) for the vomiting. That has helped so far but she is still very sick. Please pray for her to get better fast and that no one else gets it.

Sick Little Piggy #3:
Miss Katelynn is hanging in there. She still shows all of the symptoms of the RSV but hasn't really gotten any worse. She still has the dreaded cough and her doctor is keeping her on the pulmicort for another 2 weeks because of the RSV she got again. After that we will see how her cough is and we will determine if she needs a pulmonologist. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for the kiddos. Thank goodness it's just 3 sick little piggies and not 5!! :-)

I totally feel for you. I agree with person on face book that said they need to be seen by a specialitiest. They really have been too sick for the last 4 to 5 months not to see a doctor that specialiest in RSV and chest problems. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help!!!!!
