So far, so good

Although the constant wheezing is like nails on a chalkboard for a pair of anxious parents, Bryce is clearly not in too much distress (see video -- turn up your volume if you want to know what I mean by "wheezing"). He slept WAY better than Logan did on his first night with the cold, and Logan seems to be on the mend after only three days. I think it's safe to say this is not the dreaded RSV.

Weak as it may be, this bug gets around. I woke up with a sore throat and mild congestion this morning, and I think Christie is only a few hours behind. So, it seems that we'll be staying at home to keep the germs in, rather than out, for the next few days.

Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, the OT wasn't kidding about favoring his right side. Getting him to lay on his left is nearly impossible and feels more like baby torture than good parenting. Helmets are cool, right? (just kidding) Print this post


  1. I forgot to mention, since it's probably not obvious, that the wheezing isn't a stuffy nose. He does it when he's healthy too, but only when he's exerting himself.

  2. Have you considered asking the doctor for a nebulizer to help with the wheezing?

    I hope you-all kick this cold quick.

  3. Every time Bryce sees a doctor, I tell them his lungs are my top concern, but four out of four doctors (including one respirologist) tell me they sound clear.

    It's not that I don't believe them -- it's just unnerving.
