Daniel is sick! :(

***** UPDATE*****

Daniel went to the dr. yesterday and we left with encouraging news!! Daniels ears are clearing up and according to Dr. D, Daniel was one of the best cases of RSV he has ever seen for a baby his age. A lot of babies at 6 weeks old end up being hospitalized for a few days, but not our Daniel!! We praise God for his healing hands and for many of you that took time to pray for him. Thank You! We know that your prayers were heard! :)

Are you all digging the battle womb from the Dr.s office today?!?

Daniel has been kind of snotty the past two days, but other than that seemingly feeling good, I thought. This morning I woke up and realized immediately that we had a sick baby on our hands.

I pondered whether I was being a paranoid first time momma by wanting to take him to the doctor so soon and I waited for approximately 15 minutes before I did not care if I was being paranoid, I was going to take him the the dr.

They got me in today at 2:40.

Dr. Cummings checked him out and noticed immediately that he had a double ear infection.

She did a swab to test him for the flu, which came back negative. Then she ordered blood to be drawn to check for RSV (Respiratory syncytial virus) which he has! :(

So, needless to say, our little boy is not feeling good. I pray that this is not the first of a long line of issues that he will have in the breathing department.

He does not have a fever and he acts like he is fine. Just as snuggly as ever! :) So, we go back to the doctor on Wednesday and I would not be surprised if they made me come back again on Friday! I don't care, I just want him to be feeling better!

Will update soon!

That bandaid is almost bigger than he is. Poor baby. Thinking of him and will be praying for him. I know you must be scared but remember who's in control of this. There is NOTHING worse than seeing your baby sick though. Love ya.

I'll be praying for your little man. I know RSV can be serious and scary (my niece came down with it at 2 weeks old), but you have great intuition - glad you listened to yourself and took him in. I still take Cyrus in when in doubt.
