I’ve gotten lots of emails, tweets, texts, etc. and I’m having trouble keeping up so I thought I’d do a quick post.
They did admit Knox to the Children’s hospital here in town last night. Yesterday about 5pm, his wheezing had gotten much worse and he was pretty much choking and projectile throwing/spitting up every time he tried to eat. So sad.
The doctor said with metapneumovirus it basically has to run it’s course. They told us it could get worse before it gets better so he might be in for a few days. One nurse told me this is pretty much RSV but typically more congestion. Since he’s having a hard time eating, they have him on IV fluids. He is also getting breathing treatments, chest therapy (where they tap on his chest with that little round gadget for a few minutes while he is getting a breathing treatment), medicated nose drops, suction & saline. (I’m no good with actual medical terms.)
He’s pretty pitiful and I hate it for him.
He was actually pretty giddy after they transported us from the ER to Children’s. He was giggling at the nurses and kicking and playing. This is before he got really mad at the blood draw & cath. Pretty cute for a sick guy.
He did sleep some last night, but had to be interrupted quite a bit for his treatments and such.
The nurses and doctors have said Sloane’s chances of developing metapneumovirus are pretty high since she has been very exposed. We are praying that is not the case. I’m going to be coming back and forth to feed and spend time with her. So, I’m planning to wash up and switch clothes each time. And because she looked ridiculously cute yesterday (she went on a car ride with Brent)…..
Thank you so much for the continuous prayers!
