Yesterday afternoon, Mike and I took Noah to the pediatrician. He had been wheezing and he was not able to keep down his bottles.
Dr K said that Noah has bronchiolitis caused by a really nasty virus, most likely RSV. There is not much you can do except wait for it to run it’s course. We have to watch out for really fast/hard breathing and dehydration.
Since Noah is not drinking much milk, we have started feeding him smaller amounts more often. We also tried to give him some pedialyte, but he hated it! So we gave him some little sips of water instead. He did fine with that.
Noah seemed to sleep better last night. We were up a few times, but not nearly as often as the night before. He did not throw up today so that is another good sign.
Hopefully Noah is on the road to recovery. I hope he sleeps even better tonight and starts to get his appetite back tomorrow. Dr K said his cough could last 2-6 weeks though.
Emily seems to be feeling better today. She still cough some, but seems to feel better otherwise. I will be glad when this bug leaves our house for good!
Yesterday was our 9th wedding anniversary. We went out to dinner at one of our favorite mexican restaurants. It was nice to go out just the two of us again, but it has hard to leave my sick baby.
Last night when we were getting ready for bed, we talked about what all we remembered from 9 years ago. Our wedding ceremony that Mike happily chomped gum throughout! The cold weather and snow that day. Our awesome cake at our wedding reception. Our honeymoon to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Coming home to live together in a one bedroom apartment. And so on and so forth. And here we are 9 years and 2 kids later.
Love you babe! Here’s to the next 9 years!
