Poor Baby!!

Please keep Landon in your prayers over the next couple of days. We took him to his regular pediatrician on Friday where they took some mucus cultures. She said she would have the results on Monday and she would call us. However, he progressively got worse and worse so we took him to their weekend office on Saturday evening. The doctor there said he might have RSV, so he gave us a prescription for an antibiotic and let us borrow one of their nebulizers(?) so we could give him breathing treatments over the weekend.

Landon is sleeping a lot more and eating a lot less, but I guess that is to be expected. He is also running a fever of around 100. He is very congested (however it isn’t in his lungs, which is a wonderful thing!!) and has an awful, awful cough.

I will send out an update when I hear from the doctor.

By the way, for those interested parties, he is 12 pounds and 14 ounces and 25 ¼ inches long. Per a website we were looking at (only does 1 or 3 months not "almost 2 months"):
Sex = boy
Age = 1 Month
Length = 25.25 inches
Weight = 12.75 pounds

Based on the data you submitted, your child falls into the following percentiles:
Length = above the 100th percentile
Weight = 90th percentile
