At Childrens Hospital with Liam...

Our happy healthy weekend came to an end with Liam having a sudden onset of wheezing last night. It was downhill from there and when we got to the ER he was satting low 80s and dusky/blue...they gave him a breathing treatment which helped tremendously, but he is on and off oxygen satting low 90s. They admitted us to wait for blood cultures and tests for rsv and flu to come back. Lung xray showed viral infection but not pneumonia, thank God. So here we wait. Liam is finally getting a little rest right now...and me too for that matter.

He went from happy, playful and totally fine to sick with whatever this is within a matter of hours...scary. Will keep updating as we know what were dealing with!


  1. Oh no! Poor Liam :( I'm so glad the breathing treatment made such a difference. Praying those labs and cultures come back quick so they can get to the bottom of it and get you all back home!

  2. Poor Liam!!! Praying for you guys. I know how quickly respiratory illnesses can take these CHDers down. Logan doesn't ever do well when he catches one either.

  3. Poor Liam! Hope he is feeling better this morning and you too, for that matter. Praying his cultures come back quickly so they can get him treated. Hoping you get back home with your happy Liam soon!
