J is in bad shape.

T got sick with Pneumonia. I got sick, Paul got sick. J was doing great. Not even a runny nose. We thought we were in the clear.

Then yesterday, I heard the most awful sound you can hear with an asthmatic son. The wet cough. So out came the nebulizer and breathing treatments. Then today, he is having a treatment and it was not working. He is crying, telling me he can't get a breath, and I look at his fingernails which are turning blue...

I try not to panic as I am running him to the car, while yelling at Paul to hurry up. Since I was freaking out, Paul took him. His oxygen was at a 93, which is low, so he is at Children's getting treatments. Hopefully, he won't have to spend the night.

Finger's crossed.

UPDATE: J is home now and napping. He now is on steroids and other meds. We also need to watch him like a hawk! Lets hope he stays under control.....

I am glad to hear that he is going better! My brother had very bad asthma as a child so I understand how scary it can be!

I really hope everything gets better for him soon. I really hate to see anyone not feeling well, especially when it is one of the little ones.

I hope J continues to improve. Ugh, a small person on steroids sucks! My oldest (J) is asthmatic also and lucky for us we have only had to have him on prednasone once. He was just reading a children's biography of Teddy Roosevelt, who had asthma, and oh my, the treatments then were awful!
