I just returned from taking my 21 month old preemie to the ER. He had a runny nose and a horrible cough. And then this afternoon he started weezing. He has never done that before, so it got me nervous. He had RSV shots last year, but they are not doing them this year. So I call his ped. and they tell me that i was his mother and if i thought it was necessary to take him to the hospital i should. Not alot of help. So i started to panic thinking of all the stories and RSV, pnem., bronc. and everything else and then he had underdeveloped lungs. I should take him. Well i made a good call he has a upper resp. infection. My question is is there anyone else that feels that they are more nervous because of all the added complications of a preemie? I felt like i was overreacting and people would think that i was crazy. Is anyone still nervous after 2 years that something could still go wrong?
