One sick boy, one tired momma!

After I talked to my ped on the phone, she is not in on Thursdays, she wanted him seen by another doctor in her office. The whole gamut of tests were run. Checking everything from viruses, to clots, to electrolyte imbalances. With him it could be any number of things. His chest x-ray does show pneumonia, so a shot of rocephin was given. Then we found out his strep test came back positive! That's a new one, Jax has never had strep before. My ped called tonight after talking with this other doctor. She's a little concerned about the strep and pneumonia together. She said if its strep above then its probably also strep below. So this may even go into his blood stream and require IV antibiotics. His abdominal x-ray does not show a bunch of stool in there, (just like I thought) but it does show a lot of air. Meaning that his bowels are not moving at all. So we've gone to continuous feeds for now, and we'll see how he does. Once again we've probably caught this early, since we watch him so close and know and when he's acting different. Its a good thing we did so we can start antibiotics, because this may be a nasty infection. But he may also probably get worse before he gets better. So we'll probably be back in the office tomorrow for another shot of rocephin and oral antibiotics. That is all depending on how the night goes!
He was really showing he didn't feel good today. He was telling me all about it!



We were in the office for 3 hours, I'm tired, and frankly a little discouraged. My "girl" shower is this weekend, and I just found yesterday that a bunch of people didn't get the evite, that's why not very many people RSVP'd. I know about 4 people that can't come, now Jax is sick! What do I do? Do we move the shower back a week? What about the people that are planning on coming? And we reserved the clubhouse at my aunts condo's.

Ei, Ei, Ei, drama, there's always drama!

Praying for Jax to make a speedy recovery and that it doesn't get worse before it gets better. You continue to amaze me with how in tune you are with Jax and yet how much else you get accomplished too!

Alicia said...

Oh no! So sorry to hear he is so sick, poor Jaxson Boy! Also sorry about the shower dilemma. Are the people who are able to come this weekend able to come next instead? Either way, it just stinks!

Prayers, love, and hugs...

Poor Jax!!! Hope that it will be a quicky and no hospitalization involved! If you would like to push the shower back it's fine by me, I am #1 advocate that the child comes first, If you need anything let me know!!!!

Stevenson Family said...

I say move the shower!! You really want to enjoy it and with Jax being sick you need your time. I'm praying he gets well soon and also that you figure out what to do with the shower. I can't wait to see all your girl clothes!!

The Browning Family said...

Awwww - sweet Jax! Been wondering what is happening since your post on FB. Okay... will pray. Justus is fine, just infection that we have oral antibiotics for. Praying it does not turn into pneaumonia - which seems to be his forte.
I know I'm a complete stranger, but give little Jax kisses from me. I do think of him, and you - as I know your "goin thru it" to a degree too.
Keep pressing on,love ya...

Those pictures of him break my heart! Praying hard for him and you! Get better sweet boy! Love and Hugs!!!

Tina said...

Oh poor little Jax, he doesn't look well at all and is definitely showing you. Praying for a speedy recovery and I do hope it doesn't get worse before getting better, just goes straight to better! Much love and hugs to your sweet little man, keeping him in my prayers.

Might be a good idea to postpone the shower, so you can enjoy it completely and not have additional worries about Jax?

Rochelle said...

So thankful you know even the slightest differences in your kids. You are one amazing momma. Praying for Jax.
Good luck on the shower whatever you decide.

Kelly said...

Michelle and Sean said...

I hope Jax feels better soon!

Lacey don't worry about the shower, do what is best for you and Jax. We all understand. I think everyone will do their best to be there for you either way!!

We all just want Jax to be well, so just let me know what you decide.

Keeping Jax in my prayers!!

ABandCsMom said...

Oh my... poor Jax sure doesn't look like he feels good at all. Hope he doesn't get worse, before getting better.

Anderson Family said...

I was just going to email you - we got home Wednesday night but I didn't get any invitation to your shower either. I must have been one of the ones who didn't get the evite. And guess what - we went straight from the airport to Primary's because Carter was in the hospital with pneumonia - guess it must be going around. But who gets pneumonia in July was my question? We managed to get him discharged yesterday - so I feel your pain with the no sleep. Between the 21 hour flight and straight to the hospital I got 6 hours of sleep in 48 hours. I'll have to call you - I survived the airplane ride and it wasn't as bad as I thought! I think you can do it too!

Melissa M said...

I'm so sorry that Jax is sick! It's sounds like you caught it early and I hope he's back to himself very soon. I will keep him in my prayers.

Becca said...

Oh, poor little Jax!!! I'm so sorry he's sick. :-( I really hope he gets better soon!

I don't know what to tell you about the shower, other than I wish I could be there. LOL

ANewKindOfPerfect said...

Aww, he looks adorable even if he doesn't feel good! I hope he gets better without getting worse first.

Tiffany said...

Lacey,
I'm so sorry. It's miserable when they are sick because they get it so bad. And the timing is never helpful. Praying that he will recover quickly and that your shower turns out okay however you decide to do it.

Becky said...

Hang in there my friend! Sorry Jax isn't feeling well...praying that you can keep him home from the hospital.

Michelle said...

I hope he's feeling better!
