Quoting Jamie & Baby Aria:" What does RSV sound/look like? My 5 month old DD is stuffy and congested, she wheezes a little if she's ... [snip!] ... attempt to bring a friend to watch X in the waiting room-so I don't have to worry about him running around the halls in the ER?"
Quoting regina_margot:" RSV is actually the cold. when little babies get it, it's like the worst cold from hell you've ever ... [snip!] ... assuming that you don't have an on-call pedi you can call? if your baby is running a high fever, you'll want medical attention."
Quoting MelDCraig:" When my youngest got RSV I thought it was just a cold. We took him to the Dr (because he was only 5 months ... [snip!] ... 10 weeks premature so everything scared me) and the Dr sent him to be tested for RSV because he had rapid, shallow breathing."Awe :/ She's a 35 weeker so I get scared about everything too. And I've been watching her breathing but sometimes it seems shallow other times I can't tell
Quoting Jamie & Baby Aria:" We don't have an on-call anything That's why ER is our only option, but luckily any time we go, we're ... [snip!] ... seem like she feels really good, she keeps rubbing at her face and when she coughs she gags and usually spits up quite a bit."
Quoting Jamie & Baby Aria:" Awe :/ She's a 35 weeker so I get scared about everything too. And I've been watching her breathing but sometimes it seems shallow other times I can't tell "
Quoting regina_margot:" ahh poor baby! mine are premies, too, i know how you feel. the thing with thermometers is they're all ... [snip!] ... and trying to keep her as comfy as i can. that's what my pedi said to do. good luck, hope your munchkin feels better soon!"I'm just not sure. I feel like she does, but SO says no. I don't know, her whole body is warm, even her toes and she always has chilly toes like me, even when she has a warm outfit and socks on usually. So I 'm not sure. And I'm hoping that if I do have to go that X at least behaves. And no humidifier :/
Quoting MelDCraig:" Well like I said.....we didn't notice anything more that what seemed to be a cold. I would say that ... [snip!] ... to get her checked out before WAY too much longer if you think RSV is a possibility. Better to err on the safe side of things."Aww, well hopefully we can go soon. X is napping so I hope he's nice and happy for the trip, cause if I wait till I'm done sitting, it'll be dark and its so icy I'm not looking forward to that. Thank you
Quoting ♥K:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Jamie & Baby Aria:</b>" Aww, well hopefully we can go soon. ... [snip!] ... 7 days a week. Or if you call the er and ask for the on call pedi to call they will have them call you within 15 minutes or so"
Quoting ♥K:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Jamie & Baby Aria:</b>" Oh wow I did not know that, lol. Okay, ... [snip!] ... Also if it makes any difference for driving last I went out the roads were completely bare. For now anyway. Lol"Haha yeah, highways are all good from what I've driven on. But side roads in Cal are still not so wonderful lol. But I'm already up here so it isn't that bad, since the worst road is 6th St and then it's probably clear right to Portage haha. But I heard a storm's coming in again so I'm scared to leave after dark, and then leave the hospital in a blizzard. Which would be my luck.
Quoting ♥K:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Jamie & Baby Aria:</b>" Haha yeah, highways are all good from ... [snip!] ... which has been nice the few nights I had to drive lo there in a storm. Why don't you use aspiris er? Just prefer portage?"Haha exactly, and I always go slower just because I'd rather not crash on smurf roads like that lol. But yeah I hate Aspiris, just never good experiences there.
