Sick of being sick

Nathan has been sick for over a week now. That's why my posting has been lacking. It started Thursday, with what seemed to be a flare up of his asthma. So I did the normal protocol for that and he just didn't seem better. So I took him to the pediatrician Sunday afternoon. He put him on a new medicine for his nebulizer and a steroid. I drop Nathan off at the house to go fill his prescription and to buy groceries. Kent sends me a text asking when I was going to get back home. I knew that wasn't good. Nathan had been throwing up since I left. So, I get home and start Nathan on the new meds. He throws up.. a lot. So we have a rough couple of days until Tuesday when I had, had enough and took him back to the doctor. This time we got to see our actual pediatrician. She looked him over and he had developed an infection in his chest. So she put him on antibiotics for that. And since then it has made all the difference. He is acting so much better. He's fever is completely gone and his breathing has improved drastically! I am so happy that we are hopefully seeing the light at the end of this sick, germ filled tunnel. I do have to take him back tomorrow and get him rechecked. Hopefully once we get completely over this and I can get my house back into a reasonable, clean order there will be more posts from me. Until then, I'm not promising much.

Poor kiddo and poor Mommy. I know it's been hard on you and him. I am glad he is feeling better. Now if we can get through this weather we will all be good. Is it spring yet? Be safe this weekend if you have to get on the roads. I hear you guys may get some ice, snow and rain.
