Well, I just wanted to update everyone on Jack. He is doing a lot better. The steriods he is on make him really hiper. And get this, they are for the inflamation in his lungs to stop the wheezing, but... when he takes them he crawles around like the energizer bunny and gets so worked up that he starts wheezing. I don't know if they are helping or making things worse. Anyway, the doctor said he didn't have a bad case of RSV and that he may not get any worse than he is now. So far he hasn't and I am very thankful. We have only had a couple of scares. Last night he was really congested and wheezing and the combo got him a little strangled. He got his breath after just a few seconds, but we never let him out of our sight because it could happen anytime.
I had a hard time the first of the week when we learned what he had. I felt responsible, since I had been sick and I knew I gave it to him. I hated to know I was the reason he was going to have to fight this stupid virus. I know it isn't productive to beat myself up, but I guess that is just the overprotective mother coming out. I just wish it were possible to protect them from anything hard or painful. If I feel this way now, I know the next 18 years are going to be tough!
Well, we miss everyone and hope to be back this sunday if all goes to plan. Hope you are all having a great week!!
