Back on steroids again... oy vey!

Yes, Matthew must have picked up some kind of "lung bug" while at the doctors office on Friday while getting his RSV shot. I never leave this house so I have no idea where else he could have picked it up... Not blaming doctor office, it's just hard to sit w/ a 21 month old in the room without letting him down to investigate. He's been coughing like crazy since Sunday night. It scares me because the last time he was coughing like this, he ended up at the hospital for a week.

So... he's BACK ON STEROIDS.... and having additional breathing treatments.

Thank goodness for our beloved Dr. Craig Nakamura, he was so busy but still squeezed me in. Needless to say, I was at his office from 4:00pm until 6:15pm.... God bless him, he's one of my most favorite doctors and he still had to go make rounds at several hospitals after seeing us. This is a doc that shows up at your hospital room around midnight or 1:00am ....very dedicated and devoted doctor.

GAHHHH....It's soooo hard to entertain a little tyke like Matthew for 2 hours at a doctors office.

So sorry that Matthew is sick. Good thing he has such a good doctor who fit him into the schedule. Hope that the steroids and breathing treatments work.

Jess has strep and feels pretty rotten, too. She is also coughing and is having extra breathing treatments but I don't think she needs the steroids - yet.

Good luck!
