Cross Your Fingers: Evan's first cold!

Evan has his first cold. The poor little thing is struggling with his reflux and now this cold. It started yesterday with his being very irritable, the reflux at an all time horrible where he hasn't been able to eat more than an ounce or two every three hours. His little nose is dry and packed with boogies all the time and shrieks when I try to clear it out. We had an all night scream fest with him last night, and Cameron was not going to be left out of the fun so he joined in too. They ate horribly all day today and this morning Evan's little nose was runny with thick boogies and he hasn't slept hardly at all. Then tonight at the 7pm bedtime bottle he threw up a lot with a lot of mucus in the spit up.

I was hoping our first day in the newly converted den/playroom would be a lot more fun but it was overshadowed by his crumminess.

I'm obsessed, terrified, and freaked out. I'm scared to death that this little head cold will become RSV. It can happen so fast and it's so easily spreadable that it wouldn't take much for Cameron to catch it too. I really hope this little cold goes away as fast as possible. If Evan continues to eat poorly overnight I will take him in to the pediatrician first thing tomorrow morning. If he's lost too much weight and if they test for RSV comes back positive they may decide to admit him to the hospital.

Cross your fingers for Evan and Cameron. My little babies need all the luck they can get. They haven't had too much this year and they deserve so much more.

Awwww....I'm thinking about you guys. But, hey, if Evan's drinking an ounce or two every few hours that's not bad. My daughter once got sick and wouldn't drink a drop for 24 hours. We ended up in the ER. If he stops drinking at all try to feed through a dropper or off of a spoon just to get something in him. Hope the ped. tomorrow can help.

*hugs* to you and to Evan. It is so hard to see our babies sick. I hope his cold runs it's course very quickly.

Oh, I am so sorry for you. It is terrifying, isn't it? My girls are both sick too and I am paranoid to sleep because I am afraid they will get worse while I do. Hang in there. Your little man is in my prayers. (Heather.D/nestie)
