Saturday, Jackson came down with a little cold. Nothing to be alarmed about-no fever, clear runny nose, and a tiny little cough. By Sunday, his little cold turned into something very serious. Over the last year, anytime Jackson gets sick he always ends up needing breathing treatments. I was prepared that this would be the case. He had 3 treatments Sunday afternoon and seemed to be feeling better. Sunday night he slept with me so I could keep an eye on him. At midnight, I noticed him having a VERY hard time breathing. Jason and I had the hardest time figuring out what to do. Did we go to the ER or wait until the Dr.'s office opens in a few hours. Does anyone else have that problem? We gave him one more breathing treatment which didn't help at all. That made a very easy decision for us...time to go to the ER. We got go Lebonheur at 1:00 am on Monday (Halloween).They took us right back and did a heavy duty breathing treatment (3x the albuterol).
Incredible Hulk had fun exploring Jackson's room. Hudson even got to "Trick or Treat" with Jackson which he LOVED!
Jackson had fun but he was SO worn out and was still not feeling well. This is one of the few smiles I saw while we were there.
One fun thing that happened is Hudson told Jason he needed to go potty and he went! Yea Hulk!
We took a little walk around the hospital...
...and went to art class where we made this "Thankful wreath". (I love that he said he was thankful for green beans. I wasn't aware that he liked green beans.)
Tuesday night, we were discharged and headed home. These 2 boys were so glad to be reunited.
Wednesday, we went back to our pediatrician. They decided to put Jackson on an inhaled steroid everyday in attempts to not ever be in the hospital again. I am praying it works.
Thursday, Hudson woke up with the stomach virus. Luckily his didn't last too long. Friday, he was feeling a little better- we decided to lay low at home and Clorox everything! Saturday, we went to a birthday party and came home to have family movie night. In the middle of our movie, Jackson then got the stomach virus. He was sick ALL. NIGHT. LONG! So, there is our week. Oh, I forgot to say that during this whole week of "fun", I have had an upper respiratory infection. I am exhausted and really looking forward to going back to work tomorrow after an unexpected week off. I am ready for life to be back to normal! Praying that this week is uneventful.
