Day Three and Emmett is still fighting this bug. The challenge with RSV is that it seems to be hurting Emmett. Previous illnesses he has been miserable and felt horrible, but this rotten virus seems to be hurting him and there is nothing we can do. Obviously, he's getting tylenol (or whatever the hospital provides) to relieve his aches and pains, but it doesn't seem to be working very well. Yesterday afternoon he had a sponge bath and had about a half hour off of his bi-pap when he felt a bit better. But it didn't last. And today so far he's just feeling yucky.
That is, of course, scary. Alisha and Josh appreciate your prayers and support. They are checking FaceBook and Messenger and appreciate all of the messages - even if they aren't always able to respond. Grandma Rhonda and Grandpa Roger are there today. Visiting with Emmett and allowing Alisha and Josh a change of scenery. (Hmmm, I wonder if they will go to the van and watch Toy Story!)
After Saturday's sponge bath it was time for photos! Emmett was happy up to that point - but he did not want any photos!
Emmett's usual bi-pap has been exchanged for hospital equipment during his stay. He's receiving oxygen also. Normally at home it is just the regular atmosphere. Of course, his faithful bunny is with him. Tomorrow some of his Toy Story friends will join him.
When he is sick, it takes all of Emmett's energy to just handle the basics. There's very little play and almost no chatter. Unfortunately, this RSV virus is going to have it grip on Emmett for a few more days. It has to run it's course!
