Whirlwind couple days
I thought I posted the other day about Baby Boy going to the hospital but realized that I had only saved it as a draft. So I did just post that. But as an update, we are now up north at another race and Baby Boy is doing much better. The doctor is leaning toward this being asthma and after a day and night at the hospital with many breathing treatments we were able to go home. I went home and packed our motorhome the fastest I have ever done -- an hour and hoped I had everything. I called John a number of times the rest of the night with things that I thought of but of course I missed a number of things which we ended up buying today. So, here we are and continuing with breathing treatments every 3 - 4 hours and through the night. He is also on an oral steroid and an antibiotic to prevent possible pneumonia as there was a "haze" on his x-ray. Throughout this Baby Boy has remained happy as can be. The doctor at the hospital told me that he should not look so happy because he was really sick and his lungs were working so hard. I guess his nickname could be "happy wheezer" which is what they dubbed him at his last hospital stay. So I have not slept in my bed and I miss that but thankfully was able to get a good night of rest last night as these whirlwind few days have been quite exhausting. Anyway, we are off to go swimming and this post may sound a little rushed or confusing and if so, sorry but I wanted to update.
