So Rhett started in with a fever last night. Just low grade nothing big. By 10 am it was 101, and wasn't coming down. I called his ped but he was out of the office. So I called the Dr. on call and they didn't want to touch him with a ten foot pole so they told us to go to the ER.
I went to our local ER, thinking it was nothing big. But then Rhett had a febrile seizure. His temp was 104.6 by the time that happened. They got him cooled down and then took him back for chest xrays. The xrays came back showing that he had pneumonia in his right lung.
So they admitted us. Then the Ped on call at the hospital came in and said that he was worried about his lung collapsing, I told him that if he was worried about that, then we needed to be up at PCMC where they were able to meet his needs better. (We were in a room with NO cardiac or sat monitor.) HELLO? This is Rhett we are talking about here. He's always on a monitor.
So anyhow the Dr felt like Rhett was really super sick so he sent him up to PCMC via ambulance. Now the Dr's up here feel like this pneumonia is nothing worse than what he has had in the past, and that it can be treated at home.
So I am ticked off that I even went to the hospital down there to begin with. I just thought he had like an ear infection or something, that they would give us an antibiotic and send us home.
Instead they freaked about something that to us is no big deal, and now I have been in the hospital for over 12 hrs with a 3 yr old who is pissed off that everyone keeps bugging him. I.am.so.freaking.tired.
So long story short, since Rhett's O2 levels have been good, and since his fever broke, I think I have them talked into letting us go home.
I haven't forgot about the contests its just that we are moving, and Rhett's been sick, and we don't have any internet. I am using the hospitals right now.
We should have internet in the new place next week.
Sorry for leavin ya'all hangin.
