The Battle of Little Baby Carter with RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus)

Childrens Atlanta Miskin.jpgIf you've ever seen a baby battle RSV (that's respiratory syncytial virus), you know it's scary stuff. While this virus is typically diagnosed more during the winter months, cases are on the rise later than usual, and one well-intentioned kiss or hand squeeze could have serious consequences.

Take it from this mom of twins who just had one of the scariest weeks of her life.

“When our littlest twin, Carter, began coughing and choking on his mucous, we knew something was wrong—especially after noticing labored breathing and some retracting around his ribs.

We took him straight to Children’s, where he was admitted for several days, alongside his brother who unfortunately had already been exposed. Over the last ten days, both boys have been fighting hard to overcome this obstacle: high fevers, labored breathing, vomiting mucous, and lots of worry from mom and dad.

What might be no big deal to a healthy immune system, can be devastating to infants and those with compromised immune systems.

On behalf of all parents, I beg you:

Know the signs of respiratory syncytial virus and take care to limit possible exposures. When parents ask you to wash your hands or avoid kissing a baby, please listen.”
