Giddy with excitement Jake says "When I am bigger I get to go to the GOUTS all by myself!"It took me a while to figure out but "gouts" is "scouts" and I have to say I'm not all that excited for the scouts phase in our lives.
Jake has been very sick since about Saturday. He has had a low grade fever most days (sometimes high) and he has a terrible cough, and he is wheezing a lot. I had been putting him on the nebulizer at least twice a day for four days hoping that would help, but it didn't seem to give him much improvement. So, we headed for the doctors office when he spiked another fever.
His oxygen levels were too low, so here he is being "nebulized" at the Dr.'s office he got an otter-pop because he finally opened his mouth so the PA could look at his throat. luckily his O2 levels weren't low enough to require a steroid shot.
"P Diddy" as Randy calls him (The PA we saw is Bryan Ditty) said that he should be on a steriod for 5 days for his asthma, should be taking zyrtec instead of Claritin for his allergies (which is causing all the coughing that is keeping everyone up at night, and he thinks the fever is a virus but gave me an antibiotic prescription to fill if he doesn't improve within the next two days. Whew. I sure hope he feels better in the next couple of days.
