Uphill from here...

Well I just thought I'd give a little update on Seth.
At Fridays Dr. appt they couldn't determine whether it was RSV or Pneumonia. So after a breathing treatment at the Dr.'s office Adam took him to the hospital for a chest xray. Turns out it's Pneumonia. He was sent home with 2 prescriptions and 2 breathing treatments.
However later that night his temperature shot up to 103.8 and his heart started to race and his little body was shaking all over. So Adam took him into the hospital where he was admitted. After some antibiotics and a iv to get some fluids down him he was sent home late last night.
We still have breathing treatments every 4 hours to keep up on for now but he's really improved. He's started to eat again and he'll even play a little bit with the other boys. He goes back in for a update tomorrow.
Thanks to everyone who's called and checked in on him. Looks like it's only uphill from here. :)

Ohhhhh, I am so sorry you are dealing with this. Two of mine have pneumonia right now too. We are on antibiotic, oral steroids and breathing treatments every 4 hours. It stinks. Glad to hear he is starting to feel better though. I will be thinking about you the next time I sit down to give breathing treatments!

Good Luck!

Oh I pray Seth makes a speedy recover and I pray your other two sweeties sneak but this illness.

You are doing a great job Momm. It is so hard seeing our kids so sick.

You all are in my prayers.
