Devin spent the last 25 hours in the hospital. Let me back track....Originally his Ped thought he had pneumonia and sent us to the hospital because his breathing was terrible. Very labored, tugging, pulling from the belly, etc. At the hospital they did chest x-ray, blood work, IV and started Nebulizer treatments and Respiratory PT. After the x-ray came back Devin's doctor decided that it did not show pneumonia, but asthma. His diaphragm was flat (or something that indicates asthma) and he was responding to the steroids (not the antibiotics) and nebulizer (which he would only respond to for asthma). So it was decided that basically yesterday was a severe asthma attack. He now has a nebulizer at home, meds, etc.
Let me tell you- all of those things- chest x ray, IV, nebulizer, etc. are VERY difficult with a two yr old!!!! He was a trooper and except for the meds making him very HYPER he was a good boy.
I am glad to be home. Hopefully this asthma thing will stay at bay with us now doing treatments every day.
Here is a video of Devin at the hospital. This was after 2 treatments. Notice his breathing. belly movement, and his attempt to talk. It breaks my heart.
