They loaded Wade down with motrin, a neb treatment, a dose of augmentin, and a zythromycin loading dose. So no surprise when 3-4 hours later he started vomiting. He has never had that much medicine at one time. He was so thirsty and kept asking for "wawa" (water) but every time we gave him some he got sick. We literally went through our entire linen closet. They also sent him home with an inhaler and two antibiotics. Meanwhile I have been getting over a sinus infection that I took a Z-pack for. Well Monday morning I felt like I was going to die- the Z pack did not work. My ears and throat hurt so bad and the lack of sleep was not helping. I called my doctor and luckily they were able to call in another antibiotic for me to try. Oh and now Josh has a sore throat. When it rains it pours! I ended up calling my mother in law for her advice (who should be a doctor because she knows so much about everything!) I hope after nursing as long as she has that I will be a wealth of knowledge as well. I thought he was given too much medicine in the ER and did not think he needed to be on two antibiotics and a inhaler. Well she agreed and had a great idea to take him in to see his doctor. So that is what we did. When our doctor walked in he says... "Are you here about the Pneumonia Wade does not have" I just knew it... bless the ER MD's heart. He was just too young but super nice! He miss diagnosed the xray. The radiologist confirmed it was not pneumonia. So we left the office with a diagnosis of bronchitis and he say only to keep Wade on the Z pack and not to use the inhaler or Augmentin. Boy am I glad I went back in. So now Wade has a horrible cough but feels better than Josh and I.
Thank you Thank you to my mom who has taken care of Wade yesterday and today so I could rest. She also took a lot of our laundry and I am so grateful!!! Poor Josh has been working even though he does not feel well. We have not slept much at all the last three nights but hopefully everyone is on their way to recovering. Wade took a 4 hr nap today which was great for both of us!
