RSV!

Ashton has had a cough and a runny nose for a couple of days and his energy has just been lower. So Shanna and I took him in to the doctors yesterday to have them take a look. He has an ear infection in his right ear. They ran a culture on him for RSV and it came back negative. Then they called me this morning and said that they had let that culture overnight and it was positive this morning. His sats were 70 % at the doctors’ office but his coloring was still good so we planned on watching him and putting him on oxygen if he worsened, but now he is going to have to go on O2.

He has been doing so good too. We are supposed to go out to Utah this weekend for my nieces’ baptism, but I don’t know if we are going to be able to do that now. I guess we’ll have to see how things develop.

Keep him in you prayers if you will.

I hope that Ashton starts to feel better very soon and I am sorry he has to be put on O2. Hopefully it will only be temporary.
Keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh no! I hope Ashton is off oxygen soon. Our Ashton is sick too. Hope yours is better really soon so you can go to the baptism!

I'm sorry to hear about the oxygen, but these heart kids are so amazing that they'll work around the cord and continue to develop their skills.
