Instead, Luke is here with me, at home, doing this.
|He loves the "crow pillow" and will sleep on nothing else.|
And getting 6 treatments a day with this.
Luckily, he does not have to be on oxygen. I am so grateful for that, and I am sure Luke is too. He does not have pneumonia, and our pediatrician said that his bigger lung lobes are looking clear so far.
His lower lobes in his lungs are full of infection and junk though, and his throat is pretty bad too. He has a nasty sounding cough, and he also had a fever of 102 when I took him in.
Poor little guy! I feel so bad for my sweet baby.
He hates the nebulizer treatments, and screams the whole time. Ben and I are hoping that sometime really soon, he will realize that it won't hurt him, and maybe get used to them. We will be doing them 6 times a day for approx. 2 weeks, so we are keeping our fingers crossed.
Luke had RSV last year, and it freaked me out a lot worse that time than this one does. He was also worse last time though, and it turned into pneumonia and also landed him in the hospital with a plugged lung which began to collapse. I think we caught it early enough this time around, and hopefully, with the treatments, we can clear it up, and get our happy little Lukey back soon.
