Good vibes needed

I think our streak of avoiding RSV or influenza might finally be over. Jax is sick. I took him in yesterday, his chest x-ray looks worse than usual.
Last night during the night I had to turn him up to 2 liters of O2. Then I couldn't sleep because I was debating if I should take him in to the ER. If he goes above a liter he needs to go on c-pap because he will quickly go downhill. This morning he's down to a liter but thats still way above his 1/4 liter baseline.
They did a VRP yesterday so if it comes back RSV than I know this is going to get worse instead of better. Send your good vibes this way that it doesn't get worse. I'm going to watch him for the next couple of hours and see what he does so I can decide if we head to the house on the hill or not.

This is Joyce. I was walking in your shoes just 48 hours ago. We hit the ER at 11:30 yesterday morning. I used to think it was just Ohio, but having this blog makes me realize the suffering is spread across the world. I wish there were millions of dollars available to research why Ds kids seem to have these darn respiratory issues, plummenting O2 sats and such. I sure hope little Jax pulls thru quickly. Prayers and warm fuzzy vibes coming your way.
