Yesterday Jackson started getting a runny nose. No big deal. Then, at 3:30 this morning he woke up wheezing and coughing with a fever. I got him into the doctor ASAP. Something told me he wasn't doing good. He ended up having 2 breathing treatments in the doctors office, was put on steroids and if he isn't better by tomorrow they talked about admitting him to the hospital!

It really freaked me out. I can't stand the thought of putting him in a hospital. He freaked out enough when they put the mask on his face. A nurse had to hold him down while I held his head back. Of course, I'm sitting there crying right with him. If you didn't already know, Jackson has a concave chest. I don't know the medical term for it, but he was born with it. So anytime he has something like this it's only harder for him to breathe because his airways are already somewhat restricted. Anyway, we'll find out tomorrow how he is doing and I'll let you know.

In the meantime, please pray for him.

He seems like he's doing much better. Fortunately Aaron let us borrow a nebulizer with a binky attachment. He still hates it, but it's easier.
