Baby Jack gave us a scare this week. It started out as a cold, nothing serious. Stephanie took him in for a check on Monday and was reassured…nothing to be alarmed about. By Wednesday morning he wasn’t eating and his breathing was labored at times. His noon appointment at the pediatrician’s office turned into an ambulance transfer to the emergency room, then a second ambulance transfer to a neonatal intensive care unit. The diagnosis was pneumonia, caused by RSV.
A few days on oxygen and he’s doing better…eating again, respiratory rate is stable again, and hopefully he’ll be released early next week. Rob and I go down on Tuesday, and I can’t wait to see him. This little guy has stolen my heart…well, he had it from birth. And after this week, I’m ready to see him in person.
