Bethany was in the hospital

Hello all. Well recently we had a lot of excitement around here. The kids and I recently went to Florida for a visit on the way there Lane started to get sick. A couple of days later he passed it on to the girls and then a few days after that they passed it on to Bethany. We got back home Tuesday evening and on Wednesday morning I took the kids to the doctor. After checking the older the three the only major problem found was that Lorelei had an ear infection. Then she checked Bethany and when she listened to her lungs she said that they didn't sound good but they didn't sound great either. The doctor suggested that we take her across the street to the hospital to be tested for RSV. The test results were positive, my baby had gotten RSV. For those of you who don't know what RSV is: it is a Respiratory virus that is very dangerous for infants, people with heart and lung conditions, and the elderly. If not caught early and properly treated it can even cause death. Thankfully everything has worked ok for us. Bethany did have to go into the hospital but she was only in there for 5 days. We are home now and things are going just fine. I hope that all is well with all of you.
