Grayson's First Sick Appointment

All weekend poor Gray has just been congested, coughing and has thrown up some nasty grossness so I took him to see Doctor G today. I hate that my little man isn't even 2 months old and he's sick!

After an exam and some tests, Grayson has been diagnosed with RSV. Yuck! To older kids and adults, this is just a cold. But to babies, it can be pretty serious if it gets in their lungs. So I'm supposed to watch for labored breathing. Great - I'm going to have a hard time sleeping - I'm sure I'll be glued to the baby monitor! Dr. G said that he's never had an RSV case that has stayed isolated to just one child in a family. It's pretty much a guarantee that Weston is going to get it. My poor guys.
