Seth really sick again :(

The kids all started with a mild cold again, but in Seth it VERY quickly overwhelmed his little lungs, causing his oxygen saturations to plummet back into the mid-80%'s - and this after satting 97-99% on average the past few days. He was the most lethargic I've ever seen just an hour ago; it was freaky. I had already put a call into the pulmonologist early this morning and was waiting for a call back because Seth had a fever (101) and was starting to sat lower than normal, but he was still in the okay range. That went south really fast; when he woke up from his nap I put in an emergency call and got an immediate response.  When we'd seen the pulmonologist on Tuesday he was worried this might happen despite how great Seth was doing that day, because I told him the others were fighting yet another cold. So now my dad is picking up steroids and antibiotics, Seth is on a liter of oxygen and if he needs any increase at all we're supposed to take him to the ER. His temp is higher now - 102. We just took it again.

Thanks for praying, we'll keep you posted.


At 8:30 this morning, when he was fever-free and satting 93%


At 11:30 when he had a fever and was satting 85% before oxygen. The scary thing was that he didn't care or move at all when we put the oxygen cannula on him. Normally he really fights it, even last time when we ended up in the hospital!
