Home, for now

Well we came home. For now. I'm so tired I can't even see straight. I think this is the most tired I've ever been being in the hospital. I don't know if it was a false positive for RSV, or the brunt of it is still coming, but this is definitly not RSV right now. He is still on 3/4 of oxygen. And when he gets mad or starts coughing he turns blue as blue. But he is not needing a lot of suctioning, and he's not super junky. Thats why I don't think its RSV or we are still early in it. Usually with RSV he's sick for 2 or 3 weeks, and this is barely day five, so we'll see.

Its so hard when you have everything at home that you need, because then you don't know when to bring him home. A normal child wouldn't be able to go home until they were off oxygen, but because he's on oxygen anyway, we can do it at home. I am so tired and can't take another night of no sleep so we are home, watching him closely. Its a strong possibility that we will have to go back, but I'm willing to do that to get a couple nights of semi better sleep (depends on if Jax sleeps, he didn't much in the hospital). He's gagging like crazy to, so I'm going to call my doc and see if she will call me in some zofran.

Keep praying, we are not out of the woods yet.

Glad that you are able to be home for now. I pray that you are able to get some sleep and hopefully stay out of the hospital! Take care of yourself and the little man!

Gagging is SO not fun! Has Jax had this problem for awhile? Gavin has done this for about 2 years. I've never heard of Zofran. Let me know if it works. Hugs and Prayers!

Zofran never goes unfilled at our house and it's the nectar of the God's I tell ya!

Praying for you all - rest sweet girl and know we hold you all in our prayers.

LAcey I'm glad to hear you are home. At least maybe you can get a few hours rest. I KNOW how the hospital is....you are supposed to be there to get better but you can't really do that when they want you vitals every ten minutes. Praying for Jaxson to get over this soon and that it will NOT be as bad as last time. You just never know he could shock you and get better from this day on...stranger things have happened my Ava is living proof of strange things! I wish I could help with something. I will pray hard! Please take care and give that precious young man a hug and a kidd from Ava and me!

It is nice to hear you are home. I have been checking your blog to see how everything is going so you don't have to answer a bunch of text messages :) I hope it isn't RSV, and that he just gets back to normal.

Enjoy your own bed!! I will pray for Jaxson AND your sleep!! Everything is always more traumatic for me without some good rest!
I didn't take Suzie's place (Lily's mom) she is over the state of Utah. I am the Pres over Salt Lake county. She's a great lady...and I'm so glad she gave me your blog address. WE WOULD LOVE TO HELP in anyway we can!! I know we've never met....but if I can do a thing I will be there! He is an angel!!
