This time of year, colds can easily turn into bronchiolitis, bronchiolitis can cause wheezing, and mommies and daddies of preemie babies thank God for the ability to have meds to treat such things. Isaac and Eliana have been very sick this past week, and got worse last night. Thankfully, their doctor has a weekend clinic and saw them right away this morning. In addition to the issues listed above, Eliana has the addition of an ear infection. On a positive note, they both tested negative for RSV which is a major concern in preemies this time of year. After beginning medications today, there is already some improvement. Isabella has fared well with no issues other than a stuffy nose. Andrew and Elijah have had colds but they have been extremely short lived. Please pray by Monday morning when they are seen by the pediatrician for a recheck, this mama can feel better about all that will transpire on Tuesday.
For the reminder of the weekend, we will be visiting with the two wheezers every four hours around the clock.
