The nurses and staff at PCH were phenomenal and we couldn't have asked for better care for our little girl. We are also thankful for going in sooner rather than later because she could have been a lot worse had they not been able to do all the things that they did to support her tiny frame during this time.
RSV is kind of a random thing it seems. It's basically a cold that older children and adults can handle quite well. Babies have a hard time with it because their airways are so incredibly small that the slightest irritation, swelling, or whatever make it a very big and scary deal. There are also a couple of different presentations of the virus that can make it hard to know whether you should go see a doctor or wait it out. We learned a lot during this time.
We are thankful to be at home and on the healing side of things.
