First cold. Not a milestone I wanted Harmon to tackle at only two months of age. We’ve been to the pediatrician twice–virus hasn’t traveled to the lungs at this point & praying it doesn’t. RSV is no joke at Harmon’s age. Last night was the worst night I have ever had with a newborn without a doubt. But I’ve also never had a newborn in the germy winter months before so I’m experiencing this all for the first time as a fourth-time mom. And it’s scary! I think I’m ready for spring…
Poor little guy, he feels awful but he’s trying to smile for mama.
We’re not doing much of this. Being upright seems to be helping Harmon nap a bit longer than he would be able to otherwise. I’ve probably been holding him for 23 of the last 24 hours. He’s been gagging on his mucus & throwing me into a panic. Our pediatrician reassured me he cannot choke on mucus, but I still freak out when he starts gagging and doesn’t breathe.
If you’ve got some to spare, we sure would appreciate prayers for our Harmon Hunter. Hopefully he’ll be back to being a Happy Harmon lickety-split!
