No RSV confirmed in this neck of Portland (OR) yet, but lots of
bronchiolitis and croup that looks like parainfluenza.

Anyone seeing RSV activity yet. The AAP Hospitalists are reporting early and
heavy activity in the North East. We haven't confirmed any cases in the
Memphis area. Just curious about others. 
Also anyone seeing any influenza?
