A post from the bed

** Updated **

After four Albuterol treatments today/tonight, Jake's wheezing was no better and his respirations were up to 83 per minute (too high). The nurse on call sent us down to the Children's ER, where Jake and Grayson are checking in (I'm staying home with Nathaniel and Nicholas until we know what's what). Please keep Jakey in your prayers!

Oh, and I sent Grayson with a camera. We'll see how that goes.

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. Thought I was dying. I've been sick since Nov. 4, so right at a month now without a single day of feeling normal.

I'd been able to go to work almost the whole time, but this week I took a turn for the worse and have been in bed since Sunday night. I went to the doctor over a week ago, and they said it was just a virus and gave me a Cortisone shot, plus a cough syrup and nasal spray for the symptoms ... but said there was no antibiotic or anything that would heal me.

Then this week I seem to have gotten the flu, complete with chills, fever, aches, weak knees, and a few other choice symptoms I won't mention here. Oh, and Jake has RSV and we're doing Albuterol breathing treatments every four hours to try to keep him out of the hospital. Good times!


So, that's it for this post. Fulfilling, no? Back to regular posting when I feel good enough to return to life.

Thanks, Megan! He's on his way to the ER now, which I hope will help. At home he was only getting worse. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for checking in!
