glad to hear about it...
but the good news is that it is not from RSV (he tested negative) he's on a nebulizer every 4 hours and I'm doing saline drops in his nose and the suction (which he screams). according to the pediatrician his chest is clear.
I ended up calling the doc last night because I wish they could give him something for the cough. I know this is viral and I know he can't have antibiotics but sometimes his coughing goes on and on and on and towards the end he screams cause it hurts... the doctor says I should just nurse him or give him a little pedialyte (cold) after a big fit.
I had forgotten how many times infants get sick!
PS: did I mention we are going to Mass in a bit over a week (doc says he can travel!)
