Worried Mama

J has been coughing for forever. We took him to the Dr. last week and he has bronchitis. So we did the antibiotics, we are doing the kids mucinex, and at least once a day, we have to do a breathing treatment with his nebulizer. I pray he gets better, I really don't want this to turn into pneumonia. While thinking about the possibilities of a stint at Children's, I found these pictures. He was around 5 months old. So, home from NICU for only 2 months.


J was admitted because he was sitting propped up on the couch, I look over, and a trickle of blood came out of his mouth. So after nearly killing us both to get to Children's, we were admitted.
He had a torn esophagus. Now, I know that he is allergic to grass, so he is sensitive to dairy.
If I had known this little fact, J would have had a much easier babyhood. Why did not one doctor put us on Soy formula? Instead, he had horrible reflux that led to a trip to the hospital.

So sorry to hear that the little one is not doing so hot, my prayers are with you and I hope J gets better soon. Glad to see that you made the stew and that you liked it.

Oh poor, little J! I am thinking of you all and hope he feels better and is back to normal in no time.

You poor thing - and baby too. I'll keep you in my thoughts. My youngest was a NICU baby - he was born 10 weeks early and was in the nicu for the first 5 weeks of his life. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Here's to a speedy recovery for your little one.

Oh no! I hope J feels better! I am not very fond of hospitals and having to "rush" to them makes it even worse! Prayers for a fast recovery!

Sweet angelic baby. I'm so thankful he made it through that experience, and I am praying he is better soon!!! Our friend's son had a very dangerous asthma attack last night & they called 911. There must be something about this time of year. Hang in there!
