Poor little Becca had to be admitted to the hospital yesterday afternoon for (most likely) pneumonia. I took her into the pediatrician yesterday afternoon just to check out her breathing and her blood oxygen levels were really low. They told me to take her right to the ER. She was then admitted to the hospital.
I spent the night there last night and John is spending the night tonight. My mom flew in tonight and will stay home with Andrew so John and I can be at the hospital and running back and forth to sleep/shower/drop off breastmilk, etc.
They keep throwing around words like asthma, pneumonia, reactive airway something or other....but it is not entirely clear. But, she is on two antibiotics (one in case it is bacterial pneumonia, and one in case it is walking pneumonia), steroids, nebulizer treatments, oxygen and an IV. She is so pitiful!
Tracy and my neighbors have been taking care of Andrew round the clock. They have been amazing. Thank you, Tracy. You have no idea how great it is to not have to worry one second about him. I know he is in very capable hands!
I can't believe she went from almost acting normal on Tuesday to being so sick by Wednesday. This shit is SCARY.
She is stable and getting a little better, so we have high hopes that she'll be out of the hospital soon! I will update you when I know more. I have to get some sleep now!
