I was in the ER this morning with my DD because she had a fever of 101.2 and was coughing and not eating. They tested her for RSV and said it was negative -- she's 3 months old (1 month adjusted - born at 31 weeks). So, they sent me home and told me to give her Tylenol and neb treatments every 4 hrs. Then tonight at 5pm, her Pediatricians office called, and said a sample of the swab from her nose the ER took this morning was sent to Children's hospital in Boston and she actually DOES have RSV. Isn't that crazy! I asked them what should I do, and they said "nothing, just watch her breathing and call us if she gets worse..". Well, she's not eating, coughing, and she's thrown up a few times -- why do they not think this is serious...!!! :(
Also, she had the RSV shot every month for the past 3 months, clearly they don't work!
