It has been a rough winter for our little guy. Ezra got RSV in December, and then was hospitalized for three days with pneumonia the same month. Last Sunday, he came down with pneumonia again, and had to be hospitalized again. What can just be a cold to you or me, can turn into something much worse for him. As a preemie, I knew this would be the case, but I thought maybe we were out of the woods since his first winter he was healthy.
It's hard for many (myself sometimes included) to see my healthy, tall, smart little boy, and remember he was born 9 weeks early.
He has a clean bill of health now. I am praying he will stay that way. Spring is almost here!
Ezra didn't want to be in the crib at all, so he liked to chill out on the big bed.
Although I hate that he had to be in the hospital, it wasn't all bad. I got sweet snuggles!
He was SO happy to see Daddy!
The day we were discharged, he got to go for a walk. He loved visiting the nurse's station for animal crackers. He never ate them, he just liked carrying them around.
Today Ezra got a clean bill of health from his pediatrician. We just need to get an x-ray of his lungs in a month to make sure they cleared up.
