19 weeks

 

19 weeksWes caught a cold last week.  It started out as just a cough, but by Wednesday he was having trouble breathing.  We went to the doctors and came home with a nebulizer.  On Thursday it snowed and snowed and Wes was breathing about 90 breathes per minute so our pediatrician told us that we needed to go to the ER.  If it wasn’t the middle of a snow storm and the pediatrician’s office was opened I wonder if we would have gone there.  Multiple doctors looked at him, an ER doctor and two pediatric doctors, and they all came to the same conclusion that he was fine.  Just suffering from a cold.  He smiled the whole time.  When your baby’s having trouble breathing or sick in any way it’s hard not to worry.  But, during the ER visit and during the follow up appointment, doctors continued to point out how happy he was.  We will probably take the cautious route next time too, but I think it’s helpful to know that if your baby is truly sick he will let you know.
