Rhett's doctor and her nurses examined him and he didn't have a fever at the time but the cough, wheeze and runny nose still bothered me. One good thing, he now weighs 21 lbs and is 28" long. After many questions and nose swabs it was determined that he was negative for the flu, but positive for RSV. This terrified us both. All we could think about was the poor baby who had RSV when Shelby was in AR Children's Hospital. Dr. Calloway gave him a breathing treatment w/ the nebulizer (which was horrible and very hard to do as he screamed and wasn't having it!) in the exam room and told us that we had to give him breathing treatments for 2 days; 2 puffs from the inhaler (so glad it was an inhaler now and not the nebulizer) every 4 hours and 4 puffs at bedtime as well as benedryl every 4 hours.
They kept Rhett for us while Josh and I gave her some one on one attention Friday night. Her "boyfriend," Weston, had his birthday party at a bowling alley in Springhill, LA and she had never bowled before but LOVED IT! She actually won each game!
