About Dear Son

Dear Son was hospitalized yesterday for respiratory distress. He was admitted around 11 a.m. however we are still in the Emergency Room waiting for a bed as of this morning. He had a fever and was working pretty hard upon admission. It does not appear to be a bacterial pneumonia but they are treating it as such with several antibiotics to be safe. They started him on two liters of oxygen and they increased it to three liters. That is all the information I have at this time. I have not spoken with the doctors today.

I will not be posting until we are home. I do have a Father's Day post nearly completed and hopefully will be able to post it this weekend.

Thank you for your support and concern.

P.S. I spoke with several physicians throughout the day. Dear Son has been moved to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit this afternoon and continues to work hard. They have him on albuterol continuously now as well as the same two antibiotics. Interestingly enough, he developed an allergic reaction last night to one of the antibiotics so they are treating that as well. They have discontinued the g tube feeds in case intubation is necessary however I am hoping that will not be the case.
