Sleepless night...

Last night was a sleepless night for us all, well except for Brody. Poor Kaden needed so much suctioning, it felt like Nate and I didn't even get to close our eyes long enough to fall asleep. Every time Kaden started coughing, he started crying. It seems like it really hurts him to cough. So, I called to make an appt for him after he showed that he couldn't get rid of his fever for good, however his doctor was already "full" for the day. I wanted to yell through the phone "My kid is SICK, it is Friday do you want me to wait until Monday???", but I didn't. Instead I asked how I could change to a different peds office (it didn't help that they wouldn't take Brody as a new patient). So, I am changing Kaden's doc to Brody's. Well, I ended up calling our doctor at Children's Mercy, but got the on-call doctor. I explained to him what was going on and he said it sounded like a respitory virus...SIGH. I worry about Kaden but I also worry about Brody getting it. I checked Kaden's O2 levels and it is riding at about 93-94%. This is low for him. I feel absolutely horrible for him. I wish that there was something I could do to make him feel better. He looks miserable and seems very weak. I think tomorrow I will take him to the ER and have them do x-rays and tests to see exactly what is going on and that way we can get meds if he needs them. Please say some extra prayers for us, to get Kaden healthy and keep Brody healthy. Thanks.

I'm so sorry to hear about sweet Kaden! And sorry for you guys- it's hard enough just having a new baby, but to be up all night with both...I'm praying you will ALL do better tonight, and that you will get the problem figured out once and for all! There's NOTHING worse than a sick child! Hang in there:)

My heart goes out to you. When Cody was days old, Coltan had RSV and I had to keep Coltan with me and gave my newborn to Chris' mom to take care of him for a few days. I have soooo been there.

Saying extra prayers for your family.

How is Kaden feeling? I am praying he is feeling better and that Brody doesn't get sick. I hope you get some rest and you are able to sleep better tonight.
