I have had many emails from you all asking me if everything is ok. I know, I know. I have never went an entire weekend without posting but Thursday night/Friday morning around 3 a.m. my 5 year old woke me up with a fever, sore throat, headache........all that fun stuff. I got him into the Dr. that morning and we were told they believed it was some type of infection...they didn't run tests but they were leaning towards strep throat, pneumonia. etc. They went ahead and put him on an antibiotic and alternating Motrin and Tylenol every 2 hours. Josh has a history of febrile seizures...he had 3 before he hit the age of 2 so when my kids get a fever, I freak! He hadn't had a seizure since he was 18 months old though so I thought we were in the clear. About 4:30 Friday afternoon, he was on the computer playing a game and I was sitting on the couch feeding the baby when I watched him fall off of the chair and collapse onto the floor. I ran over to him and he was not responsive. He wasn't convulsing but was definitely having some type of silent seizure. I noticed his breathing was labored so we went ahead and called 911. His skin was very pale and he was burning up!
It took the ambulance over 15 minutes to get here. That's what you get for living in the country I guess. When they pulled my, my husband ran Joshua over to them and they put him in the ambulance immediately. He had to have oxygen. They took his temp and even after Motrin, his fever was still 104.2 Needless to say, it was an insanely scary night. We were at the ER and they ran tests. Positive for pneumonia. Funny being that he had never even had a cough!!!! They gave him meds through the IV to boost the other antibiotic that the pediatrician had given us earlier that day. We had to set alarms to get up and give him meds every 2 hours through the night to keep his fever down. It was a very long weekend. On top of that, our 8 year old had an all weekend soccer tournament.
SOooooooooooo, I'm back. I am working on getting caught up. Check back tonight and I will have a few giveaways and reviews up and something special I have been working on too hopefully!
Thanks for being great fans and for being concerned for us! It means a lot that you all really do care!
