At least pediatricians have good job security…

We had to cut our Christmas visit short. Who knew that kids get sick so much? I’ve been battling a juicy cough and a raspy voice myself, for two weeks now and on Christmas Eve, Bri started coughing too. So on Christmas Day we packed up our things and headed home. We didn’t get to visit any of the Hubby’s extended family as planned. That turned out to be a smart choice when we found out the next day at the pediatrician’s office that Bri has RSV. Did I mention, that I’m not a big fan of RSV? It’s a virus that your body just doesn’t make a good immune response too. Even people like me who have fabulous immune systems (and I’m not exaggerating here, just ask my Mom) will still catch RSV over and over again. So it definitely would not have been a good thing to bring it over to Christmas dinner.
Luckily, she has a fairly mild case. She isn’t wheezing yet. But that may come. She seems pretty happy too. She eats and smiles like normal. Although we’re napping a lot more than usual because we seem to be up even more frequently in the night. All in all, I think we’ve seen Bri’s pediatrician more times in the last three and a half months than I’ve ever seen a doctor in all my 25 years. Well, except for my own pediatrician, maybe. And my medical school professors. But seriously, who knew kids get sick so much? And why didn’t you tell me?

  1. Oh, no! So sorry to hear that everyone is still sick and over Christmas too. Poor Bri. Having a sick little one makes you feel helpless and nobody understands until they have kids. Sorry you had to figure that out so early. Please keep us posted on how she is doing. Hopefully she will fight this nasty virus off quickly.

    An FYI – NHL was very sick when he first started daycare. After 5-6 months he had an amazing immune system and still seems to battle back from things quicker than most children, if he gets sick.

  2. Yeah, I think it’s probably daycare that is the culprit! Whenever kids start daycare or preschool or whatever, they always seem to get sick about 800% more than they did before, whatever their age. Kids are carrier monkeys! 🙂 But at least Bri should build up her immunity to a lot of crud early on. I hope she gets better quickly, and you too.

  3. sorry to hear it’s more than just a cough- but glad you caught it quick. Get lots of rest!
