Sick Baby



We found out yesterday that Kynaston has RSV and that two of the complications of RSV are ear infections, and Hypoxia(can't eat, sleep, and breaths rapidly). He has a double ear infection and Hypoxia as well. His doctor checked his oxygen levels yesterday and when they weren't where he wanted them he put Kynaston on home oxygen. He has been a good little trooper with the tubs attached to his face and was able to sleep okay last nigh. I didn't sleep because every sound he made had me up checking on him. Today he is coughing more and sounds a little more wheezy but at least he is eating and sleeping again.


Kynaston was all smiles once he could breath again.

Fianly asleep and resting well.

We also learned that Porter has a double ear infection as well. I wasn't to supered about his though because he has been showing sings of one for 3 days. I just have to get better at taking him in when they first show up.

Oh I'm so sorry Amber! It is so hard when they are sick and this little. my kids are all sick too and we are just hopeing that they don't give it to the baby! RSV is so scary when they are small, but at least he gets to stay home with you. Hope he recovers quickly! take care...

Thats always hard to see our little ones sick. I sometimes feel so hopeless when they get sick like there isn't much I can do for them. Hope he starts feeling better soon :)

Aw, bless his heart! Jordan keeps talking about kynaston and how he desperately needs a white top hat to go wit his blessing suit.
