Sick Kids is the Worst!

      My youngest, Trenton who is 13 yrs old come home sick Friday from school. We have been pumping him full of meds and trying to maintain his fever. He was born 8 1/2 weeks early and was a preemie. He was put on oxygen and stayed in the NICU overnight. His stats starting climbing the next day and was able to go to the nursery. Two days after his birth via c-section, we came home. Two days later we were back at the hospital and he had pneumonia. We were there for a week. In the next 3 yrs. he had pneumonia 21 times.
         Finally soon after his 3rd birthday, they took out his tonsils and adenoids. This tremendously helped. He had asthma for yrs. and we always were administering him his nebulizer. So after the yrs. he has become much stronger and able to handle most colds, but this one reminds me so much of his younger days. We have been using his breathing treatments, and alternating Tylenol and ibuprofen every 2 hrs. to keep his fever down. The absolute most pitiful thing in the world to to have a sick baby, even if they are 13. No school for him tomorrow, just some one on one Moma time. Hopefully Tuesday he will be able to go back to school, he has a baseball game.

  1. Aww, sorry to hear your kid is sick. At any age, when they're our kids, it breaks our hearts to know they're not feeling well. Hope he gets better soon.
