3am in respiratory distress. ER. 10m24d. Same presentation as Eva.
Suspected RSV. Chest x ray in the nasty clear tube that brought me to tears when it was used on my little Eva.
Admitted. Room next door to Eva's room. RSV swab came back negative. Possible early pneumonia in right lobe according to our paediatrician in the city. However, no fever and no antibiotics here. Stay the course unless he becomes feverish.
Ventalyn. Chest physio. Cardiac leads. Lovely sinus rhythm that brings peace to my mama's heart.
Two nurses who remember Eva and mention her to me. A blessing.
I don't want another sick child. I just want my sick little Eva back to me.
Nathan is improving. Turning around. Thank God.
But do I only thank him when my child lives?
