Deklan's Growing!

Lilypie First Birthday tickers

When Deklan was about 2 weeks old, he started to get this horrible cough. We changed formula thinking it was a possible milk allergy, that didn’t work. The doctor treated him for reflux, that didn’t work either. He would cough so hard and was so worn out from coughing that his body was just limp. Finally, the doctor did a simple test and the results showed that he had contracted RSV! They admitted him to the hospital immediately, hooked him up to oxygen and a few monitors. We stayed in the hospital with him for 3 days. The doctor release him but still was not comfortable taking him off the oxygen, so he was on oxygen at home for another 4 days. It was so hard to watch him be so sick, but he was a real champ and made a full recovery.
