I had a very exciting post planned for today but a trip to the ER this morning at 6am put the kibosh on that. Isaac woke up unable to breathe and a couple squirts of his inhaler did nothing to improve the matter so off we went. Two breathing treatments, some prednisone and antibiotics and 4 hours later and we are home and feeling somewhat better.
When he was finally feeling some relief he decided to list alternative placements for the pulse ox monitor on his finger. He decided toes and ....'other appendages' would be interesting placements. I suggested that he might not like such a pinchy apparatus on 'other appendages.' He wisely agreed.
He was sent home with orders to watch TV all day. He was heart broken. We were told he could go back to school tomorrow if he is not wheezing too much. He clutched his chest and announced in a pathetic voice and with a gleam in his eye that he was pretty sure he'd still be wheezing tomorrow. At least his sense of humor is undimmed.
Barring disaster, we will return you to your regularly scheduled blog tomorrow.
