Sickness hits again

Isaac’s temp spiked last night. He topped off at 104. Petrified? Yep! We were never told if Elliot’s pneumonia was bacterial or viral. I asked for the blood culture results. Think they gave them to me? I’m gambling that it was viral, and had that hospitalist not acted so inappropriately, we would not be dealing with yet another very sick child.

His breathing is rapid; I can hear the wispy, raspy sounds when I place my ear on his chest; he refuses his bottles and food. Seems very familiar. In fact, identical to Elliot’s symptoms, yet Elliot went down hill all too fast.

We’ll head to the pediatrician’s soon and check O2 saturation, etc. However, I will NOT go to our normal pedi. I have all three kids on the books with a new group. As I keep saying, I have had enough of ineffectual behavior. If we are admitted, I so hope we run into the hospitalist. I have words...many words for her.

Prayers for my "pigpie" – aka Isaac?
