Baby Twerp Goes to the ER

By the time your third spawn comes along, you are laid back - hands off - easy going - so you know if you take them to the ER it ain't cause they sneezed.Last night BT couldn't breath and was running a temp of 102.9 we just couldn't get down. So, per his pediatricians request, we drove him to the ER -- and he has the war wounds to prove it.
After THREE breathing treatments and steroids...
He was wiped out...
and still not breathing well
So they decided to transport him to the downtown Children's hospital... Even the ambulance ride did not bring a smile to his angel face...So I asked from them to turn on the lights and sirens -- I mean for BABY Twerp and all - not for me. No No No! Why would I POSSIBLY care about that? I asked to drive to -- for BT and all -- Not for me. Then they said "Ma'am, he is in the back ASLEEP -- are you sure you just aren't a big kid yourself?"
Whatever -- I am the epitome of mature. But they were right -- he was knocked out. And the hospital still was not pleased with his vitals and breathing so they admitted him.

But this morning -- he wanted eggs and pancakes and oatmeal and muffins
and I blogged from my bed...
and asked him -- if momma can get you anything to make you better, I will....What do you want sweetheart??? I promise I will get it.
And he looked over at me and said PLAIN AS DAY --
I want a puppy.

Poor BT!! He looks so little in that big hospital bed. :( Dang! But that's good that he asked for that big 'ole breakfast. I'll keep my fingers crossed! :)

oh gosh CG! Is he going home today? Is he asthmatic? What brought this on? Just the other day he was all giggles and smiles. Bless his heart!

Aunt Dana is praying for him! (that's what most kids call me so he can call me that too!) I just want to give him a get better hug right now!

Now...get that kid a puppy... after all he's been through...poor baby...(spoken from a grandmotherly point of view of course) Best wishes for his speedy recovery and a furry friend to help him.

Poor baby! You should give him an entire litter! I hope he gets to go home soon and feels all better!!!

He deserves the litter and you deserve a pedicure for all the stress!

Oh I hope BT is going to be OK, it's not swine flu is it?! Now when you get home you ARE going to get him that puppy right? Cause little sweet chaps deserve a puppy when they have to go to the ER. Have a great day and I am praying that BT is going to be OK.

A puppy? Too funny. I'm sorry he was so sick. And I've got three kids so I totally am w/ you on the 'if they go to the ER, it's not because they sneezed' thing. I rarely take the kids to the doctor...oh the money I could have saved. Hope he's all better. Hugs, to your little guy.
