As quickly as Felix picked up and returned to his happy, chubba self, he has gone down hill and ended up so sick.
On Thursday morning last week he went to bed a happy boy and awoke a misery. Throughout his cough he was still able to feed and smile, this time around he has struggled to do much more than cry and sleep.
Sunday night I took him to Emergency as his temp hit 39, he had a rash and was barely drinking and when he did he would bring it all back up. He was diagnosed with Bronchiolitis and sent home as it’s too early to do any more than watch and wait. I was told to see a doctor Monday to keep an eye on him.
Apparently a chest infection is the underlying cause and the doctor was skeptical that we would make it through last night without him ending up in hospital. Thankfully Felix seemed to pick up during the afternoon only to wake hourly overnight. We made it without having to go back to hospital, but this morning he is terribly out of sorts and seems much worse again.
He has a doctors appointment this morning (the doctor wants to see him daily to keep an eye on things). I really hope he’s on the mend – I remember how horribly heartbreaking it was when Kahlei went to hospital at 11 months with bronchiolitis and it’s not something I want to recreate, especially with a baby under three months.
What are you doing with your last week of school holidays or are they over for you?
