Hmm, were to begin!
Last night I put Jax to bed. Everything was normal. He had some serious gagging and wretching. He wretched up more stomach acid. Once he calmed down and went to sleep, I noticed that his sats were only 92 on his typical 2 liters with the vent. I immediatly thought that he aspirated! He dropped into the 80s and I turned his oxygen up to 3 liters. He began wretching again. I took his vent off to suction, and his sats plummeted to the 50's. I popped his vent on, but his sats didnt come up. I cranked his O's up all the way to 10 liters, and very slowly, he came up. But he was gray and unresponsive. He was twitching and it looked like seizures. I called 911!
When they got there, I had his oxygen down to 6 liters, but he was still unresponsive. The paramedics didnt seemed concerned at all. Normally we love this fire department, and none of the men last night looked familiar. But they were really clueless. Im not sure if they are just used to trauma's, but they thought all this stuff was his normal. I finally told them just to leave, after they stood around, not knowing what this and that was!
I got him down to 4 liters and he calmed down and went to sleep. I decided to wait and see what the morning brought.
This morning he acted ok, but his oxygen need and heart rate were high. I knew a chest x ray and electrolytes were needed. I took him to an instacare because everything is closed and my ped is out of cell phone range at the moment. Of course the instacare said no way, he is far to complicated! And sent us to our local hospital that is a satelite to the childrens hospital. His chest x ray looks "wet", not necesarily pneumonia. What?? His white count is high. Not dangerously high, but higher than he's had in two years. His glucose was also 47. They started an IV, and talked to the childrens hospital, which wanted him ambulanced up ASAP. So off we were again to the childrens hospital.
That is were I now sit, waiting to be admitted. Im not sure yet about the chest x ray and why its so patchy when he's actually dehydrated. I guess we'll see!

Poor baby! I have never commented before , but read often. I am a Mommy to three precious, little girls. My heart goes out to you and your sweet family. I know things are never easy for you, I can't even begin to imagine a day in your life, but I admire how normal you keep things for all of your children and how well you are able to handle scary situations. My heart breaks for you as you care for your baby , but I know how much joy he brings you, too. I continue to pray for all of you, but especially your sweet little Jaxson. I hope he gets through this and feels better soon! You truly have a beautiful family !
