The "supershot" of anitbiotics last night apparently kicked the fever and improved Viking #2's overall wellness. (He slept thru the night for the most part so he got some rest.) And, while his color has improved (so no pulse ox re-test), he's still wheezing and "gurgle-ly". But, the pediatrician was unclear if it was "the crud" (thus viral and likely a cold) or bacterial (thus pneumonia) so off to the lab for a chest x-ray.
Have you ever seen the thing they put babies in for chest x-rays? Good Lord Almighty! It looks like something out of a torture chamber! LOL The poor tech mentioned she had been called several un-repeatedable names doing this x-ray but assured me he would be just fine. She "enclosed" him in this hard plastic tube that forced his arms over his head and had him "sitting" on this bicycle-seat-looking thing and all this is in a frame of sorts to take the picture. My boy is SO brave - the tech said he was the first one that she could remember that didn't make a peep! Not one tear...even when I had to leave the room!
X-rays back to the ped who determines that if it was "the crud" she'd see problems "all over" his lungs from congestion but that Vikings #2's films only has infiltrates (could they call them something else for Pete's sake?! I DON'T LIKE that word!) in the lower corner of his left lung...so it's bacterial and "slight" pneumonia.
So, off to Walgreens for a 10 day regiment of antibiotics and we're home...Thanks for your prayers. I'm positive that's part of the reason he's so much better today!
