It's been quite a weekend

Well, were sick again. This time we took a trip to the ER..

Saturday night Miller had a croupy cough...so we did the steam in the bathroom thing 4 times....Sunday morning...we called the doctors office and they sent us to the Emergency room. Where we remained for 7 hours. Miller had croup, and a small spot on his lower lobe of his lung that looked like pre-pneumonia. They started a strong anti biotic and steroid by injection and did X Rays....then started breathing treatments. Which they did 2. Then called a medical supply store and they came out and set one up in Miller's room...we give breathing treatments every 4 hours.....we have the anti biotic and steroid here also. He does seem to feel better...its a waiting game. He is on the breathing treatments for 48 hours along with the steroid...the anti biotic is 10 days....Say a prayer he heals fast. I'm home bound for 3 days no leaving. I'll come visit you all throughout the day.
For now....I may take a nap.

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear your poor little guy is ill. I am wishing him a speedy recovery and you some much needed sleep. Take good care :)

What a weekend, Jen. You must be exhausted. Poor little guy. One thing after another. Thank goodness you have a good doctor.

I'll keep you both in my prayers - that you get some rest and that he gets better soon. He's having a rough time of it right now.
