MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Carly Dewey’s now 3-year-old daughter, Cassidy, spent eight days in the air conditioner when she was 17 months old after testing positive for the respiratory syncytial virus.
Now that another baby has survived the virus, Grand Strand’s mom wants others to know the warning signs.
“I took him out of day care, he was never really sick before, he was just overweight,” Dewey said. “So I took him to the pediatrician և a short story, the oxygen level was short. “He was obviously fighting a respiratory virus, but we were not sure at the time.”
Doctors gave Cassidy respiratory treatment and some steroids before sending her home. The next day he did not improve his appointment and was admitted to the Grand Strand Regional Medical Center. He was then flown by helicopter to Charleston SKIN, where he had been for more than a week.
“Obviously he is at an age when he could talk a little,” he said. “Once he was seated and intubated as if he had been asleep for eight days. Which is super sad and awful. It was devastating. “
Dewey said it was while Cassidy was battling RSV when they learned he had asthma, something he now sees at a pulmonologist for treatment.
Earlier this month, Dewey’s youngest daughter, Izzy, tested positive for RSV. The pediatrician said he should monitor Izzy, but when he did not feel better a few days later, he was taken to hospital by ambulance.
Dewey said Easy was in the hospital overnight with oxygen but needed no intrusion.
Dewey now wants his parents to know about the warning signs of the virus.
“If they do not eat properly, they cough, have difficulty breathing, it is a good time to see them or take them to the hospital,” he said.
Health leaders across the country, as well as at Tidelands Health և Grand Strand Medical Center, are reporting an increase in cases.
The RSV season usually coincides with the cold և flu season, but this summer doctors are treating more patients than normal.
