Poor Sick Goob!
Our poor baby has been sick on and off for a few weeks now. At first everyone was getting sick so the answer was that a nasty bug was simply floating around town and it would just have to pass.... He got mostly better and I thought that it was all but behind us until a few days ago he seemed to nose dive again. On the 22nd I ended up taking him and Boy into see their doctor. He said they have RSV and he gave them both a round of steroids and some nebulizer meds to help... Boy quickly rebounded but by yesterday morning we were back in the doctors office. From there they admitted Goob to the hospital where we spent a very long day and last night. As of this morning the doctor says we will be spending at least one more night there, but maybe more. While on oxygen he's fine and is happy and playing, but the second he knocks his oxygen out of his nose his O2 levels start to drop. His doctor says that they are going to keep him until his levels come back up without the Oxygen. Poor boy! All things considered we're all doing well. One of our trusty dusty babysitters came and spent the night with the other kids last night so both Hubby and I could be in the hospital with him. Right now Hubby is there with him (since he can work remotely and would stand a better chance of getting stuff done there) and around dinner time I will swap him out for the night. Hopefully, tonight will be our last night there and he'll be well enough to come home sometime tomorrow.
