Josh Powell’s infant daughter was hospitalized with RSV, a common virus that causes mild-cold-like symptoms in adults and children but can be serious in infants.
Hayden Powell was born Dec. 23 in New Orleans, which happened to coincide with the Lakers game there. Josh Powell said she is improving, but it’s still touch-and-go.
“She’s taking it one day at a time,” Powell said.
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a major cause of respiratory illness in young children and can cause infection of the lungs and breathing passages. An estimated 125,000 infants in the United States are hospitalized each year.
I hope Josh's daughter gets well soon.
