Micah health update

We took a trip to the pediatrician yesterday because Micah was coughing more and it sounded sort of wheezy. As usual, by the time we got there he sounded just fine. But just to make sure, they did an RSV test since there are lots of cases going around our area and she was worried about baby's arrival next week. Fortunately, he does not have RSV. She also ordered a chest x-ray to make sure that there's no fluid in his lungs. He had that this morning and all looks fine. As you can see by the photo, it's a horrible contraption and trust me, he let us know that he was not fond of it.

So, we continue with the Nasonex and hope that his congestion goes away one of these days.

That contraption looks like some torture chamber. Glad he is clear on the RSV. Will be praying for you next week as you meet your newest little guy.
Hugs and Prayers

Oh, what a sad picture! I'm glad that Micah's lungs checked out okay, and no RSV. I hope you can all be healthy when the little one arrives. I'm so excited to hear about him!

Oh. My. I am so sorry Micah had to go thru that. {{Micah}} Best wishes with your newest arrival.

I just plain hate those chest x-ray things... Braska had to be in one at 4 months when she was the sickest she's been with rotavirus and dehydration. She was SO horrible miserable already, then to be put in that! I couldn't be in there...had to leave Dad in there to help. Just couldn't stand it. I hope we never have to deal with it again! Glad there's no RSV!!

Wow, I have never seen a chest x-ray thing like that. Jack's are done laying down. Glad that he is clear of RSV.

Tiana had to take her xrays the same way prior to her heart surgery...she hated it just as much, I felt soooo bad!
