  • My son had RSV when he was 9 months old. He caught from a friend's relative (that baby passed). It was very scary. I took him to the Dr where they said he had wheezing and a cold. I was on the way to get his meds when he stopped breathing. Rushed him to the ER where he was DX with RSV. Stayed a week in the hospital. Today he is 8 years old and still has issues with allergies and sinus.

  • my son had it when he was 2 wks old. he spent a total of 28 days in the hospital. he spent a little over two wks in the pedi icu. very scary.he quit breathing and had to be intubated. he is 7 months now and you can't tell that he has ever been sick. he does however have medical problems. he has svt and asd. he hasn't had any breathing problems.anyways my son had some great dr.s. they caught it very early on and so he was already in the hospital when he quit breathing.
