my LO is 17 days old and is sick.
stuffed up nose, mucusy cough. his cough makes me worry a bit cause he kinda chokes and gags bit when he coughs.
That's how my ds's RSV started when he was 3 weeks old. The thing I WISH I would have known was that if they admit him, they likely do a spinal tap, even though the baby almost never has meningitis. They rule it out only for malpractice reasons. My poor ds had to go through a medical resident learning to perform a spinal tap on him. I have nightmares about it to this day. Needless to say I wish I would have been foreceful and declined their "mandatory" test.
But int he end I'm glad I brought him in because once we got there we were told he had one lung collapsed.
Good luck to you and your baby. Just be selective about what procedures REALLY need to be done. :hugs
