A Day at the ER!
Saturday March 21: After coming from playing outside,we sat down to have lunch and then started to relax for a nap when I noticed he was breathing rapidly (we counted 56 breaths a minute at this point). Kind of like he had just gotten done running a marathon, but we had been in for 45 minutes. We gave 3 breathing treatments at home before making the decision to head to the ER. By the time we got to the ER his breathing was down to 40 breaths a minute, which is still high. They ordered a chest x-ray and while we waited for the results, his pulse ox got better. They gave 2 oral doses of steroids and a shot of antibiotics. We still don't have a def diagnosis. We are heading to the pediatricians office on Monday.
