Daniel is on the mend and is finally, at last fever-free for over twenty-four hours. Considering the fact that the fever was the only physical symptom that he was presenting with I was surprised when his doctor diagnosed bronchitis. Almost as surprised as when she put a oxygen sat monitor on him that came back with a reading in the 80′s.
What the fresh hell is that all about? No coughing or wheezing or snot and it is bronchitis?! I certainly was scratching my head over that…and doing a bit of beating my mommy-self up too. But a co-worker put it back in perspective reminding me that kids’ symptoms can be downright confusing. So then to not spot a condition is not too surprising.
Dang kids and their downright confusing symptoms!
So the doctor prescribed antibiotics with a return to round the clock nebulizer treatments and just like that the kid was feeling so much better. He’s a little pale but he is pretty much his old self again.
Hurray, hurray, hurray!!!
