Back in the Hospital

Although Levi had a good day yesterday, he started having problems last night. I laid him down to sleep in his car seat again so he'd be upright, and he was in front of the cool mist humidifier, but about every 3 hours he'd wake up with a bad cough and would be wheezing. I didn't see the chest retractions that I saw the day before, and after a few minutes of breathing the cold outside air, he'd sound better and breathe well enough to nurse & fall back to sleep. But then it would start all over a few hours later. He was still doing it when he woke up this morning & I had to leave for the airport to do a training in Maine.

A dear friend came to watch Adam on short notice & Grams took Levi to the doctor. He didn't really improve after more steroids & breathing treatments so he was admitted to the hospital. The last I heard, he was getting X-rays. So I sit in my hotel room over 1,000 miles away waiting for news. I held up a lot better on Wednesday, but I know that he is in good hands and am hoping for the best. We have a lot of support from family & friends, which makes it easier to be in a less than preferable situation.
