e.r.

last night we spent 5 agonizing hrs in the e.r. owen got a cold and this time it hit fast and hard. thurs night was also a sleepless night, as owen screamed every half hour about pain in his ears and chest, from coughing non-stop. every time he gets a cold it immediately goes to his chest. yesterday i asked him how he was feeling and he answered "I fine, I fine." i took him into the docs anyway... there was no way i was going to spend another sleepless night feeling helpless. and that is exactly what we did anyway. last night, as we had some friends over to watch the debate, owen was really having problems breathing.... a call in the docs let us know that we could continue doing nebulizer treatments, but we probably might want to think about heading over to the hospital. we did... and 2 treatments later and a dose of steriods, by 4 am we were crawling back into bed. let me just say though, our child was off the wall with all that medication in him... he was literally jumping all over the bed, out of control. but now he is sleeping and resting... ahh...
