My son is home

My son is home. Thank God.
We took him to the ER because he was sick and not breathing well. We have a family history of asthma, and we were 90% sure that he had it. We took him in at 1 am, and at 7, after 4 nebulous treatments, they decided to admit him for observation. He had responded well to the first one, but the next 3 didn't help. They put him on oxygen, and he fell asleep. They woke him up by sticking a fricking qtip up his nose to get a swab for the flu. The poor kid woke up screaming, and screamed and cried for the next hour. They took us to his room with me laying on the bed holding him as he screamed and cried. We got to his room and he settled down finally after about 40 minutes and he fell asleep in my arms.
I couldn't settle down. I just couldn't. He's ok, they sent him home this morning. It has been such an awful weekend. I'm supposed to go to my dr tomorrow. I'm gonna reschedule. I just can't do anything more than normal tomorrow. I just don't have it in me. Even normal will probably be hard for a few days. I don't know how much I will be here for a few days till everything settles down. I'm just so worn out and tired. I wanted to let you guys know and give you an update.
