There, now I feel better.

Yes, both of my children have RSV, and are being admitted to Children’s Hospital. Little Liebchen had mild symptoms, but is young enough that it could be dangerous. Das Big Boy is having pretty intense symptoms, and will need breathing treatments and possibly oxygen. But superhero pulmonologist feels it’s just a speed bump for him.

I hate seeing my babies sick, and I hate the all encompassing worry that their illness brings. Das Big Boy hasn’t ever been sick like this (NICU excepted, obvs). He’s lethargic and miserable. It breaks my heart. But I’m glad they’re being treated. And they get to share a room so the family can stay together.

Also, it’s my 35th birthday and even though it’s not about me I still feel a little sorry for myself. So there.

Here are my poor babies. Please send many good thoughts their way.
