Wyatt update 4/12/10

We ended up in the emergency department of the childrens hospital yesterday. Wyatt spiked a temperature of 102.8 along with all the difficulties that I previously posted. They ruled out pneumonia, which was a concern, and after 6 hours of sitting in a small, sterile, squarely built room with one miserably feeling boy and 2 overly active and tired girls, they sent us home to *keep doing what we're doing*.

His body and muscles are tired of working overtime. It appears his muscles and energy just bottomed out which is causing the respiratory problems. And his consistantly high heart rate is because his body is working so much harder to keep things going. The temperature is likely because of his body being overly stressed and tired...that's a Wyatt thing.

We've been in contact with his pulmonologist who is supporting us in utilizing all the equipment that we have here. So, onward we go....

  2. Poor kiddo, sorry he's so miserable. I pray he makes a turn around by tomorrow. Jack is down too, and I was so close to heading to the ER tonight---but thankfully he stopped vomiting and nodded off (now Im wide awake!) Anyway, prayers that both boys are back to their ol' selves soon--Continued prayers & BIG hugs to your sweeet boy-
    Heidi & Jack.
