100 lb. Club - My baby is in the hospital

View Full Version : My baby is in the hospital

Just anted to let everyone know (in case you missed my daily secrets to success threads) that I have been in the hospital for the last day and a half with my 14 month old. He was rushed to the hospital from his pediatricians yesterday because he was breathing labored and his o2 stats were dropping!!! It was sort of scary. SO we are in Floating Hospital in Boston, in the Pediatric Intensive Care unit. They are ruling out possible pnemonia and RSV (wich he had 3 weeks ago) He has a double ear infection....and can not stand his IV. Poor kid. SO...that is where I have been hiding out. My 3 year old is hanging out at my mom's (thank God for Nanna's). SO...between myself and my DH (who is smack dab in the middle of tax season) I have been back and forth to and from the hospital. Can everyone say a little prayer, chant, meditate.... for my baby that he gets healthy soon? Thanks everyone...I miss my computer!!!! I guess I went from one addiction to another....food to computer :lol:

I will try to keep everyone updated!

Sending get better vibes to your sweet baby. I know all about the pressure and sleepless nights of being in the hospital with your little one. My son's been there a few times.

Your son is in my thoughts...

:grouphug: Take care Gina! Thinking of you and your family. Let us know how everything is going.. :grouphug:

Oh Gina, I am so sorry to hear that your little one is still struggling. RSV can be so tricky for those little ones, hard to kick. I am glad he is in the PCU, they will take good care of him. I am also happy that Nanna is around because you will need a little nurturing too and hopefully she can spell you off so that you can get a little rest. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

gina, you and your family are in my prayers. it is so hard when you have a child in the hospital for any reason. hope he gets better soon.

Thanks everyone for your kind words and thoughts....here is an update.... It is just emotionally draining and physically exchausting. (sp?) I just feel bad, for both kids, because they are both so off wack. Tony and I just switched places...so he is in with Aidan now.

He is doing o.k. I guess with this type of stuff...you take one step foward, and two steps back. He is really baffleing doctors...because he is really hit hard for such an otherwise "healthy" first year of life. He may have some sort of Asthma (GREAT!!!!!!)...but who know, time will only tell. I do know that his lungs are a weak spot now....and any cold or chest colds he gets, will most likelt inflame his respitory system :(

I am just trying to keep him comfy, and entertained. He is gonna have to have the bloody IV in again, because I have tried all day to eat....but he just flings the sippy accross the room. Man, Aidan has some temper.

P.S......I think I got a part time job as a child life specialist at NEMC...doing what I went to school for, and doing the same position that I was in 6.....yes, 6 years ago. LOL...some $$$$$$ for moi!!!! Funny how things work out...bring my kid to the hospital, come out with a part time job!!!!!!
