My son Nicholas passed away saturday evening aftering fighting RSV and a blood infection for 3 weeks.  Nick was 3 years old, was born with AV canal which they say was complicated.  He did have part one of the repair done. 

He was in ICU at St Christopher's, he was on the ventilator and had a central line in his neck.  and there is always a chance for infection.  The RSV made him too weak to fight the blood infection, which he got from the central line.  I was there with him til the end and it was peaceful.

I miss him terribly.  I was with him all the time.  He is my hero and my inspiration.  He fought hard for being such a fragile little boy.   He has taught me so much.  I thank God for every minute I spent with him, it was worth every one and I am thankful for them.

I love you Nicholas!!!

Oh Myu Goodness!! I am very sorry to hear that your son passed, you have my condolensces. God Bless atleast he is not suffering. My daughter had RSV when she was 3 or 4 and was in the hospital for a few days but my goodness, I think alot of children passed from RSV that year.
