Not the New Year Celebrations I had planned on....
Well as most of you know, I am sitting at Roanoke Memorial Hospital with Ryan. He is in the PICU in really rough shape. It all started on Sunday. He ran a fever all day Sunday and Monday with no other symptoms. Then on Tuesday he continued to run a fever on and off and had symptoms of a sinus infection. On Wednesday he was getting worse and sounding really dry in his nasal passages and had some bleeding so I called his Dr. and she put him on Augmentin for infection. I figured by Friday he would be feeling much better. Boy was I wrong. He was 10 times worse this morning (Friday). I worked on him for a while Thursday night giving him breathing treatments and vest treatments and trying to figure out how to moisturize his nasal passages. Finally I figured out that I needed to put a mask on him instead of his canula because he was breathing more out of his mouth than his nose. This was him Thursday night.
