On Monday the 2nd they both developed coughs. Tuesday we did the whole "wait & see" thing and they got steadily worse.
By Wednesday, I knew it was time to go to the doctor's. Vinnie's RSV test came back positive immediately and was glaring....they said it was the fastest/brightest positive they'd seen! :/
Luke was running a temperature of about 101* and Vinnie's was at about 99*. Both boys also have sinus/upper respiratory infections and "gunky" ear/nose/throat canals/tubes.
Dr. G (the touchy one) prescribed antibiotics to both boys and an inhaler for Vinnie. She also said to keep giving Luke his cough & cold strips & to give both boys Tylenol as needed for pain/fever management.
Luke's fever is raging today. It got up to 103.3* and this mama was pretty upset. Both boys just want to snuggle, nurse, and cuddle, and sleep.
Earlier we went from this (above) Both boys screaming & Mommy at her wit's end...
To this (below) Both boys passed out & in a milk coma....
I'm worried about them. We've been SOOOO sick since October and just can't seem to catch a break.
This is what the little sicklings look like now:
