This was the sight that I walked in to when I got back to the hospital after Wesley woke up from his nap. Gwen was waiting for the discharge papers to be completed and Bryce was as happy as could be. He could finally walk (he had monitor wires on his left foot) and get down from the bed. About 30 minutes later, we were led out of the hospital by his nurse on shift and we made our way home. Gwen took the boys and I went to Walmart to get 4 prescriptions filled. When we got home, he was happy as could be and running around and playing and even jumping on the mini trampoline.
I’m definitely glad to have all of my family home and my boy on the mend. Hopefully we won’t be making any more trips to the walk-in clinic, ER, and/or the ICU any time soon.
This last week, Bryce has had croup. It was bad on Monday and Gwen wanted to take him to the doctor’s office, but it was closed due to the holiday. She ended up taking him to the ER, but it was a 4-6 hour wait, plus they were waiting for a series of ambulances to come.
Tuesday she took him to the doctor and they gave him a steroid shot and said he should be feeling better within three days. Yesterday was day two and he actually sounded worse than before. Gwen took him to the walk-in clinic last night. She was there less than 30 minutes and they called an ambulance for him. His O2 stats were in the 80s which is not good. He was also sciatic (his lips were blue in color). The ambulance trip was only about 2 blocks away, so that’s going to be an expensive taxi ride!
At the ER last night, they gave him some IV fluids and he started to perk up. Gwen called me and I got up there and he was still puny looking but better than what he was at the walk-in clinic. This is what he looked like.
Wesley and I spent the morning up at the ICU. Bryce really perked up and seemed to be more of his regular self. Starting at 1pm, they were transitioning him to oral medication and if all went well, he should be discharged tonight. This is what he looked like around 6:30 this morning.
Gwen hasn’t felt well today so she went to bed and had me feed Bryce when he woke up. Usually, that time is around 11, but not tonight. Tonight, he decided he wanted to wake up at 11:40. That meant a later bedtime for him. Here’s a pic of him from when he was wide awake at 12:22 am.
