Oh crap, its RSV

Thats right, he is RSV positive. Our streak is over. Its now a matter of time before we head to the house on the hill. I'm waiting as long as I can. Right now he is not horrible. He's on 3/4 liter of oxygen, but we are only on day two and RSV peaks on day 8. I am going to probably take him tonight. I know it sounds horrible but I want to take him in when he is a little worse so they will put him where he needs to go. Last time he had RSV they waited so long to transfer him to PICU from the floor that he tanked and we were running to the PICU to be intubated.
I'm hoping that if they can get him on c-pap right away we may be able to avoid being intubated. Keep your fingers crossed.
So I am going to go pack some stuff so I'm ready when its time to hit the road.

We are so sorry to hear it is RSV. Please do not ever feel awful about the decisions you make. You know Jaxson best. All of us with children who are medically fragile do the same thing. We will be thinking of you and hoping for no intubation.

Oh Lacey - we will certainly keep little Jaxson in our prayers.... Please know that you are the most wonderful mom to little Jaxson and that he loves you so very much! I dont know much about RSV, Im gonna look it up (maybe will call it something else in South Africa), so I will go do some reading and then prayer extra hard! Take it easy and look after yourself too!
