And the snots go marching...

Right to the next unsuspecting munchkin.

That's right, my little guy is wheezing and sputtering. Huffing like a friggin freight train going uphill, and that's when he's sleeping. His sats are hanging at the precarious point, especially when he sleeps, but so far we're still dodging the need for O2. Not sure how long that'll last though if this keeps up much longer.

The rest of the day he barks like a congested seal with a reactive airway disease. Sounds about as pretty as it is. So we've now added a twice daily Pulmicort neb to our mucous blasting aresenal of bronchodialators and steroids.

Here's to hoping it works.


  1. Ugh. Hope he feels better and can hold his own with the cold. Wysdom always get's so congested. Saline mist is our best friend. Sending prayers that you will all get better

  2. Here's to hoping it works. Here, Here!
    Do you have O's at home if you need them to try and avoid the place where many more germies live?

  3. Oh if we were in the same hospital I would be able to tolerate being there. We could have thanksgiving together in the cafeteria!!

  4. Yup, we're like a Centra Care on wheels!

  5. Praying he gets to feeling better ... soon.I have a feeling this is going to be a VERY long winter!!
