Well, I need a weekend do over. First off, thank you to those that responded to my prayer request I put out Sunday on Instagram and my personal FB for Sam. Late Saturday he started running a low temp and had a lot of coughing. Sunday morning I made him an appointment at the after hours doctor's office for what I thought was going to be a run of the mill visit. It ended up being not so run of the mill.
Once we got to the doctor's office they immediately started him on oxygen and breathing treatments since his oxygen levels were so low. When he wasn't responding to treatments the doctor told me we needed to get him to the ER for further evaluation. When I asked which hospital I should take him to I was told I wouldn't be taking him. He would be going in an ambulance in case he "crashed" on the way. W. T. F.
I'm trying, but I can't even put into words how I felt at that moment. Helpless and scared don't do it justice.
Once at the ER, they started more breathing treatments and he was finally able to keep his oxygen levels within a range they were comfortable with. He started perking up and acting more like himself again. The popsicle helped a bit too.
A few hours later they diagnosed him with asthma (even though he's too young to officially diagnose at this age - something I don't quite understand) and we were able to take him home.
He's doing much better now. I pray we don't ever find ourselves in this situation again. Whenever he catches a cold he ALWAYS has problems breathing. They've finally started him on preventative treatments. I wish it could have been caught earlier, but right now I'm just so thankful he's ok.
Ok, so onto the regular scheduled programming.
If you saw my post on paper wrapped books, I mentioned I was playing around with the dresser in our master bedroom. Since moving in 5 months ago it still had random junk hanging around on top. Clothes that needed ironing, receipts, lone socks, dust, dust, and more dust. Poor bedrooms. They're always the ones that get neglected :(
We still have the matchy, matchy furniture set from my husband's bachelor days (minus the tufted headboard I had to fight tooth and nail for). And although I'd love to have something different, I think a little attention can go a long way in making it feel better in the meantime.
Now it wouldn't be complete without my must have accessory. The baby monitor.
Would you look at him! He's in there dancing during his nap. I should be irritated he isn't taking his nap, but right now I'm just so thrilled to have him happy and healthy. He can do whateva he wants ;)
