So long hospital
Jack is now out of the hospital! Goodness gracious, what a super long week it has been! Thank you so much for everyone who called and emailed us. Your thoughts and prayers were greatly appreciated. The tentative diagnosis is asthma with unknown triggers. Poor little muffin man is on breathing treatments every 4 hours with the last one before bed having an added steroid as well as oral prednisone in the morning. The doctor also gave us an inhaler to use with him because we may not always be near an outlet for the nebulizer. Wow, no one told me how much fun a toddler on steroids is!!
Here is a picture of Jack eating a popsicle at the hospital! How cute is he?? He did learn some new words this past week, “T.V.” and “Wiggles”. Thanks hospital staff for spoiling our child. Yes, were really are those parents who have been putting off fun luxury items such as ice cream and T.V. for our active toddler!! Oh well, at least he is feeling better.
Now if we can stay hospital free this next month I would be in heaven. When the paramedics brought us in the nurses were so excited to see Jack again that they were all in the room to get him checked in and bringing him gifts of candy and stuffed animals! So cute!! Needless to say it was a bit strange to have so many people recognize us from our past visits.
