Loooooong day

Whew...it has been a long day. Zac is finally asleep for a while at least so I have a moment to rest my arms. Zac had a really rough night last night. He was breathing super fast and had a temperature. I figured it was another ear infection. THe next morning as I was about to get ready for zumba, I looked over at Zac and he was just laying his head on the floor and still breathing really fast. So I decided to skip zumba and take him to urgent care. I'm so glad that I did because apparently he has RSV, and his oxygen levels were really low. So to make a really long story short, after a lot of running around we got him admitted to the hospital. He has been just soooo worn out today from breathing so hard and fast. He finally perked up tonight for about 30 minutes right after he ate a huge dinner.

Anyway, so we are here and he is on oxygen and has about a dozen wires attached to him. But he is sleeping. YAY! That is until 9:30 when they come in to do another breathing treatment. Sigh. So hopefully we won't be here too long...I asked the nurse how long RSV patients usually stay and she said THREE DAYS!!! I hope we don't have to stay that long, but if Zac needs to, then I guess that will be ok. :)
