My son is home

Monday, January 09, 2017

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.

    Thanks for the update Jacque, I am glad he is home. The young one's often find the hospital stressful. My grandson was in for a few weeks once and near the end he would scream as soon as he saw a staff member at the door. He will feel more relaxed at home which will help with his breathing. Keep care of yourself family and you are what is important at this time.

    I'm so glad he is home. Poor kid. Poor Mom.

    Yes, Jacque, the Dragons will be here when you are up to it and get your roar back. Good for you for taking some time to rest and recover. You must be exhausted, and spending time with your son will be the most important thing right now.

    I'm glad he's home. I've had a swab like that and I will never have another. Poor thing! I'm glad you're taking care of yourself and rescheduling your appointment. Do what's best for you!

    I am glad he is home!! Those swabs are nasty but check for different things. Mean to do while sleeping. Probably scared him more than anything. Take of yourself too. I am sure you haven't had much sleep.

    Asthma can be tough sometimes and if he does have it and your insurance covers it, Qvar is really good for controlling it. Sorry he went through pain. It's understandable that you are drained. Fingers crossed that things get better soon! :)
