Wyatt is sick again...

Postby raindrop » Sat Aug 28, 2004 01:47 pm

We took Wyatt to the doctor (pulminologist) Friday because he was a bit tight and wheezing and coughing some. Thought he would give us some meds to add to his routine... they did alright, stuck him in the hospital Friday. He will hopefully be getting out tomorrow. They better let him out as I have no one to watch Whitney and get her off to school and DH has to work. The hospital is an hour drive with no traffic.

Today the lady from respritory said he was pushing more air thru which was good, but we shut his O2 down for a few to see what is stats were and it was still about 89% up to 91%. Im not sure how much O2 he is getting but the ball is floating at 1.5. Im thinking that is 1.5 liters per hour, but I wont swear to that. Is that alot of O2 or not as I havent had to have him on it before. Even though if he dont improve greatly overnite then he may be coming home with it for a few days.

I really hated leaving him down there today, I spent last nite with him and DH is staying tonite. Just makes ya realize that even though they can get on your every last nerve that you still want them around no matter what and feeling good, not sickly.

Donna,
So sorry Wyatt is ill..Saying a prayer that he gets better quickly and gets out of the hospital.

As for the O2, it depends on the flow meter on how much O2 he is getting...

Just talked to DH a few min ago and respritory came in and I talked with her a min she said they had him down to .5 liters now and his stats were staying at 97-98% even while sleeping.. That is sooo good to hear. Just hoping that the respirtory that comes on at 7pm tonite will keep him going in the right direction. The one I had last nite suxed badly. After waking him 3-4 times to give him treatments while he was screaming (not letting him calm down or anything and wouldnt let me give it to him since he would do it for me but didnt want her near him) last time she woke him was about 2am and came back at 4am said he didnt need treatment (probably didnt was sleeping fine no probs then) she was spose to come back at 6am (I was awake watching TV from like 430-5am) she wrote on her card that she came in at 6am and he didnt need treatment. If she came in she came in ghostly form as no one came in there. He didnt get another treatment until about 9am this morning or he would have probably been doing better sooner as that one girl set him back a lot by not doing his meds.

Today either me or DH were giving his his treatments (respritory was a lady from our drs office ;o) ) and after she has done that all day he is doing so much better. I even asked her if she was staying after 7pm tonite...lol She said she couldnt though :(.

Well that is the update for now on Wyatt.

I know that I am about dead or at least feel like a zombie walking right now. Wyatt started getting sick Thrus nite about midnite.. I was up with him all but maybe 2 hrs that nite, then all day and got to sleep maybe 2hrs last nite.. I about had me a respirtory nurse for a snack last nite...lol It is so hard to take care of a sick baby when preg too. I think getting older has a bit to do with it too.

Well this is long enough for now, just had to vent a bit about the crappy nurse he has last nite. And too boot this is at a very highly rated Childrens Hospital. You would think they would read their patients rights they send out... Oh well, DH gets to deal with them tonite.. >;o)

Well, I offically hate the doc that I hadnt seen out of the pulminology office as of today. They have decided to try and find every little tiny thing wrong so as to not send Wyatt home, and then they said if the doc dont ok it and we take him home that we will have to pay the WHOLE bill for his stay. They even had the nerve to call the social worker up there today, like Im gonna leave him there alone... NOT on their life. This doc is mainly keeping him longer because he had NEVER saw Wyatt in the office and does not know all the care I have had to do at home, breathing treatments and such every 2 hrs for more than 24hrs and all this that the other doc he normally sees has let me do at home. I am so peed off at them right now. They took Wyatt of O2 this morning and he was doing fine when I left a few hours ago, called a few minutes ago and DH said they had put him back on 1/2 liter O2 again. I have a feeling I am going to really have a long talk with the pulminology office tomorrow. They said today that they hoped he would go home tomorrow, I have had him at home and him doing worse than he is right now.

Well, what can I say other than they want the money!!!

Donna,

Sorry to hear you all are having to deal with this and glad Wyatt is getting better. Poor fellow. Take care of yourself and get some sleep. He needs his mom at 100%! Hope you are all feeling better soon.

Well, I have calmed down a bit from my earlier fuming over the top[:p]. But I have also talked with Wyatt's GI doc and he said for me to give one of 2 docs a call in the morning to ask him for a consult (seeing how he didnt put him in hospital and cant legally see him in hopital without their asking) the GI doc did not mention the doc that has been seeing Wyatt all weekend.. Thank God!!

I am going to be making a few phones calls in the morning, even if the doc does release Wyatt. Just for my benefit and to have it on record about how things went.[:(!][}:)]

I also have a question for those of you who are very medically knowledgable, plus the ones who are RNs. Wyatt's day RN said, when I asked about the O2 levels when sleeping, that a NON sick child should stay around 91-93%. Well, I am not that good when it comes to some of this stuff, but to me this just seems common sense, wouldnt it be normal that is you are SICK that the O2 would fall a bit below what it would if you are well??? They said today before I left something along the lines of putting him back on the O2 if, while sleeping, he hit 89%. Well, I know he did that, but when he moved a bit he went up to 94-95%.. To me it seems to be more of how he is positioned while he is sleeping that is causing his O2 to fall more.

Just curious if my thinking is correct or not as I have never had to deal with the O2 before now. He never had it before this weekend at all that I can recall. Except for a few min after he was born.

So sorry I missed this post until now. Poor Wyatt! That little guy is going through heck (and so is mommy[;)]). Hope you get some good news soon on his O2 levels, and he gets to come home. And good luck with the doctors. Please keep us updated. Will keep you in my thoughts!
