Today was supposed to be Hunter’s first day of morning kindy. Instead he spent the night sounding like a seal and sleeping on my chest for half of the night. Poor baby was not well when he got up 😦 I cancelled my crossfit class and the childcare for Peyotn and Eli and rang the docs instead. Hunter dozed on the couch and managed half a banana and a rice cake. They all had a nice warm shower and by the end of it our house smelt like methol and lavender – good ole Rawleigh’s spray!
Off to the docs and I made an appointment for Peyton too as he’s not 100%. Hunter took his lightining mcqueen pillow with him and just lay on the window seat in the waiting room. Never seen him so sick.
Through to Dr Thompson (who is amazing!!!) and checked them both over. HUnter did not like having his oxygen levels checked.
He was quite wheezy by this stage and so we were given antibiotics for both him and Peyton for chest infections and redipred for Hunter to help his lungs. Then we had to head to the radiologists up the road for a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia. Peyton and Eli had to stay in a little side room and I just had to hope that they would both stay there while Hunter had his x-ray. Hunter was so tired he couldn’t keep still properly but we got there in the end.
We stopped in at Gramps (who is reovering from his repair surgery) and picked up some tinned spaghetti for lunch as we are out. Then on home where they all snuggled up in the lounge. Got lunch into Eli, bottle and bed for him. Hunter fell asleep so I let him rest. Peyton had noodles that Gramps also gave us and little weirdo put chocolate chips in with them too! Whatever floats your boat mate!
Got some lucnh into HUnter so he could have his meds and then we watched movies and waited for Grandma to come over at 4pm so I could take little man back to the docs to check his O2 and breathing. O2 levels were fine but breathing was still laboured and wheezy. On the nebuliser he went.
He didn’t mind the nebuliser at all and we pretended he was like Darth Vader or Iron Man. Long wait for Dr T to come back and check – all I can say is thank goodness for I phones!!! Hunter perked right up while we waited and seemed much happier now that he could breathe properly. Dr T gave us some inhalers and a spacer for over the night incase his breathing gets funny again.
Finally back home where he prouldly told everyone how brave he was. Big hugs for Daddy and then “Can I have a lemonade iceblock?” Memory like an elephant as I told him he could have one when we got home before we even left for the docs. Iceblocks always make you feel better when you’re sick. After not eating much during the day he ate the whole iceblock and a big bowl of homemade mash vegetables.
I left all three boys in the extremely loving and capable hands of Dean and went to a 6.30pm pilates class which was nice to have an hour to myself.
Here’s hoping all his meds kick in and he’s a box of fluffies by the weekend.
