I told you earlier that a nasty sickness ran through the childcare. Finally after two weeks when it first started, almost all of my kiddos are here at childcare. That doesn’t mean that they are all completely healthy. It just means they are here….runny noses and coughs are still here.
My hold out that isn’t here is Carver. This was Carver last night. He was completely miserable.
Earlier in the day he had gone to the doctor. He was also in urgent care on Sunday. This trip he had gotten a nebulizer treatment and then sent home. He was worse than before he went.
That evening Kalissa was working. Craig had a fireman training. Hubby and I did what we could to make him comfortable. We timed it and he couldn’t go a minute without coughing. It was miserable. We were constantly asking should we take him back in. One minute we’d be ready to leave and the next we’d say no stay home.
I was nervous to send him home with Craig for the night. Craig is an awesome Dad but a heavy sleeper and Kalissa wouldn’t be home until 2am when her shift was over.
Craig came and he decided that he was going to take him in to the ER. It’s good he made that decision. They ended up admitting him and keeping him overnight at the hospital. It’s all breathing related. He’s had some meds and is coming home this afternoon. He does have an ear infection too. I was hoping he wouldn’t be an ear infection kid but he just might.
Here’s a picture of him from the hospital. They are getting him ready to go home. Kalissa wanted me to see what his shirt said. I love it….I am a rocking grandma so it’s perfect.
I’m glad he’s on the mend. Unfortunately, I think I’m heading down the same road….there is something “wrong” with my throat. I have a short little dry cough and I’m starting a runny nose. UGH. I was bound to get it….all the kids here have had it. Yesterday I was feeding Carver in the rocking chair. He was coughing. There was a kid on each of the arm rests and both of them were coughing. Three coughing mouths within 12″ of my face…ugh.
I have next week off for medical testing related to my thyroid cancer. This sickness shouldn’t mess up that. My hope is that I can make it through the next couple days of care and be well by the time kiddos come back on the 17th.
Kids can be so scary when they are sick…I’m so happy Carver is on the mend.
