My Sick Little Munchkin!

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. Things have been crazy around here, with the in-laws visiting. I'm not getting anything done! Little J started getting sick on Saturday and it's gotten progressively worse. Last night, he started wheezing a little bit, so I decided to take him to see the doctor today. My poor little one has RSV. They gave him a prednisone drink and a medicine you take with a nebulizor. We had to borrow one from the doctors office to continue the medicine for one week, and then they will check him again next week.

I must say, that I am so blessed to have such a content little one. Even though he's been sick, he is still just as playful and content as ever. When we give him the medicine with the nebulizor, he has to sit still for 10 minutes and breath in the medicine. This little guy just sits there and sucks it in. I'm gonna have to make sure to snap a photo of him taking his medicine to scrap. I was just thinking, that this is the first time, we've had to get a prescription filled for him, and leave it to my kid, to need a machine to use it! LOL

Anyway, thankfully, it is not contagious at this point, and hopefully he will get well quickly with no complications. We will gratefully take any prayers for a quick recovery you want to send up.
