Bo update

So most of you know through my Facebook and Instagram updates that Bo was admitted to Valley Children's Hospital yesterday for RSV. When we got here yesterday he had a high fever which he had for a couple days that would not fully break. His breathing was hard and labored and he was wheezing. He was also very congested and lethargic. They started him on a very high dose of albuterol that was administered through a tube connected to a dome that fit over his head.....kind of looked like a astronauts helmet lol then we moved to his regular room where he was placed into a tent and the medication came through that. He had a chest X-ray that showed beginning stages of pneumonia so he is currently on antibiotics for that. Tonight, he will have his first real feeding I'm 24 hours and I get to hold him and nurse him for the first time in 24 hours as well which has been very hard. There is nothing worse that I have experienced that seeing your kids suffer and not being able to comfort them. This has been so emotionally draining. I keep on going into the restroom in our room to cry so that way I won't distract the nurses. I'm a ugly cryer :) I am so thankful Joe is able to be here and support me and Bo. He is such a sweet man and I am so thankful I married him. Also the messages of encouragement, scriptures and prayer today have been overwhelming in a good way. We have such thoughtful friends & a wonderful church family. God is here watching over my little Bo & He loves him so much. I've been really clinging to philippians 4:6-7 Lamentations 2:19 & especially John 14:27--Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Thank you Aida for sending that to me :)
We have about a week here but I am hoping for sooner. Bo recovered quickly when he was born prematurely and I know he can do it again. I will keep everyone updated on his progress, thanks again for the kind words.
