Primary Children's Hospital

So our little cold has turned into a major respritory infection. On Sunday night, Zac was really having a hard time breathing and he was very conjested, so we took him to the pediatrician Monday morning. They suctioned him out and decided that his oxygen saturation levels weren't and they sent us home. That night he got even worse. Tuesday was my first day back at work and I was already pretty stressed about that and then we were up till 2:00 am trying to get Zac in a comfortable position to sleep. I went to school, and Jon took him back to the doctors. They suctioned him again and tested his oxygen levels again and decided they were too low so they sent him to the emergancy room at Primary Children's Hospital. He has RSV as well as another virus and we are spending our days with lots of chords and tubes attached to the little man. They stick a tiny tube all the way down his nose to suction out the gunk and get him breathing. This might be harder for mom to watch than it is for Zac to go through. This has not been the funnest few days, but we know he's in the best place for now. We just hope we're not here for long.

Sorry to hear that Zac is so sick. I hope that he is on the mend. I hope that you and Jon survive the long days ahead of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers!

Isn't it just like a baby to get sick just as you are going back to work? Hopefully Zac will have a speedy recovery and back home where he belongs soon. I will be thinking of you all and keeping you in my prayers.

Ok, I don't love that he is in the hospital. The beeps and cords and suctioning...I thought I would handle it better. It was rough seeing him like that. He is so mellow and calm,though--until Denise comes in for the head lock...YIKES! Love you guys.
