My 2 month old nephew was sent to the hospital about a month ago with an RSV, but he had been kept in the hospital (mostly ICU) with oxygen and a feeding tube for a little over a month now. Apparently it wasn't just the virus that got him here. According to MANY doctors that have looked at him and done testing on him, he has other underlying issues. My sister and her husband are very concern that there might me something seriously wrong with their little angel. They've done lots of testing on him: x-rays of the lungs, genetic testing, esophagus, rib cage, MRI for neurological issues and so far nothing major has popped up. That's good news, but why is he still not being able to breathe on his own or is having difficulty eating? Mos of the doctors keep speculating that his muscle tone is low. Can anyone please give me some insight as to what it could be? Has anyone had any expeirences like this? I'm heartbroken for my little nephew and my poor sister and her husband. Thanks in advance for your advice and or prayers.Answer Question
