Yes - it's that time. RSV season is from October - April. And once again - as 'mom' I have to be vigilant about hand washing and sending people away if they're sick. I'm going to try to post some pictures of what the girls lungs look like. Remember - they were born at a mere 31 weeks and 5 days. That's a full 8 weeks premature. If you're sick - please stay home. When you visit - you will have to wash your hands (no worries...soap and a timer will be available to you!) lol. No kissing the babies!!!! They love to kiss - but germs people...GERMS! Have sick kids? Stay home please. You'll be a carrier of those germs and that's the one thing we certainly don't like to share. Please don't be offended if we decline an invitation or if we ask you not to visit. The last place I want to spend the winter season is in the PICU - Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. This is exactly where the girls will end up if they contract RSV. And I'll tell you this much - I read too many blogs last year about babies who never made it home. Our goal is to keep the girls healthy and happy. S0 please understand!!!!
