So Matthew had his second ride in an ambulance yesterday. All seemed well in the morning, but by 10:45, when he woke up from his morning nap, he had a very croupy cough. I got an appointment for him at the ped's office, to JUST get a breathing treatment. When we got there, they gave him a breathing treatment and a shot of steriods. His oxygen levels were in the high 80's/low 90's...so they figured he better go to the hospital. After they gave him his steriod shot, he cried so hard, he held his breath, which almost always causes him to have a seizure---which he did. I think that was the final straw for the office staff. They decided that I would not be able to drive him to the hospital and that we should take an ambulance! I'm sure that made for an interesting conversation in the waiting room!
Luckily, after about 4 breathing treatments throughout the evening and night, he just now has a slight cough and a very snotty nose. They sent us happily home today. That is one place I don't enjoy being and thank goodness it was only overnight. We're happy to be home!
