He's sick.

  1. I haven't visited in a week because my son is ill. His asthma has acting up, and he was rushed to the hospital on Weds., released, only for us to send him back on Friday. They pumped him full of steriods and his bowels have been loose because of them; I don't know if other side effects are affecting him because he's always so cheery and never complains. My boss has been very understanding. I'm so sad, I worry whenever I'm away it'll flair up again. I was so scared the way he looked on friday his eyes opened so wide and his chest moving in that big exaggerated way it does when he's pulling. I have never in my life wanted so desperately to take sickness/discomfort from him and bear it myself.

    I know everything will be okay, just had to get that out.
     
  2. Hang in there. It must be so tough on you and your little guy. As a mother, I can't imagine how hard it must be on you to see your son suffer. I hope he gets better soon.
     
  3. oh, nothing feels worse then when your babies are sick. i hope he is feeling better soon. asthma is a scary thing. my son has it, i sneak into his room and watch him at night. just sit and hug him, love heals.
     
  4. So sorry about your son. It sounds like he is a strong kid though and is pushing through it.
    It must be scary to see him sick and in pain-- but like you said, he will be okay. Just give him a little time to recover. Kids tend to do so very quickly. It can be harder in some ways for the adults who have to see the little ones vulnerable. Hang in there.
     
  5. Oh Aslan, a big hug to you! You must be worried sick! Your son sounds like a wonderful little guy, and it must be so tough for you to watch him struggle to breathe. I hope and pray that he gets better!
     
  6. I hope your son feels better. My 9 yr. old was a chronic asthmatic until she was about 6. She was constantly on Xopanex, albuterol, and Advair. My pediatricial says she outgrew her asthma but the reality is we removed many of the asthma triggers from our home include heavy drapes and carpeting.

    Keep a journal of his attacks so that you can pinpoint what the triggers are.

    Best wishes on a speedy recovery :heart:
     
  7. So sorry! I hope your son will get better very soon!
     
  8. So sorry. Be strong and I hope he gets better!

    I was reading about the asthma incidents in NYC in the local upper east side newpaper we get in our apartment building. It's scary.
