Sick Bug

2 weeks ago we had an appointment with the pediatrician to get a flu booster.  Tyler had a cough and had not been eating right for the 2 days prior.  When we went to the appt, the doctor became worried about his oxygen levels and sound of his lungs.  Her recommendation was to go be admitted to the hospital.  Tyler was put on iv fluids and breathing treatments.  All tests came back negative for RSV, flu, pneumonia.  Wednesday morning he spiked a fever.  They started him on iv antibiotics and steroids.  Thursday morning he was so pale and still not eating.  I was starting to get really worried.  He finally turned a corner late Thursday night and started eating.  His lungs began sounding better and we were discharged Friday afternoon.  Tyler was a bear for the next week while being on the steroids, breathing treatments, and steroids.  Poor guy couldn't sleep and his stomach hurt because of the antibiotics.  He is finally getting back into the swing of the things.  Unfortunately, he lost weight that had taken about a month to gain.  A big thanks to everyone who called, visited, and brought us food-we appreciate YOU!!!
Happy boy-ready to go home!
