Mason is sick, better but still not well. He has terrible allergies and he has had those awful attacks for several weeks now. Friday night he coughed and coughed and coughed. We were up practically all night.
Saturday morning he did not feel well and did not eat or drink much. He was still coughing, so I called the pharmacy to see what he could take with the other meds he is on. I went by the pharmacy and picked up the cough medicine while hubby stayed home with the boys. When I got back he was laying on the couch, he wanted left alone and was quite irritable. His respirations had been increasing all day.
Then he started vomiting. Hubby wanted me to go ahead and take my Daddy to the florist to get flowers for decoration. He took care of the boys and my Daddy and I went. When I got back, his respirations were in the upper 50's (normal for his age are 20-30). We called after hours care and headed that way. We dropped Little John off at my parents house and made the hour drive. His respirations were over 100 by arrival.
We were at the doctor's office for almost 3 hours. After a breathing treatment via nebulizer his oxygen was only up to 94%. He was diagnosed with acute bronchial something the other..........I say rubbish.....we'll see. I am not impressed with the ped that we saw. Nor the nurse that left us alone to administer the breathing treatment in the doctor's office on our own.
We go to the regular pediatrician this week for a chest x-ray and so on so forth. I think asthma. We are doing breathing treatments (via aero pump)every 4 hours, even having to wake him through the night. He is better, but not himself. Eating and drinking are poor, respirations are better.
Please pray for our little boy, he is still sick. I will keep you posted......
