Just popping in for a quick update, head over here to enter if you haven't already.
As you know Saturday was National Relaxation Day, as if I need an excuse to kick back and relax. We packed up the Vue and headed to Wrigley to watch the Cubs actually beat the Pirates and enjoy some of the AIR part of the Air and Water Show. Just about as perfect as any day could be in my book. Weather was good, company was great. Relaxation success.
Then came Sunday. Similar scenario except for the part where a little over 1/2 way into the city TOF is breathing more rapidly than normal. He's a little congested, seasonal allergies, we figured he'd be fine when his Claritin kicked in. Relax.
The game was rain delayed before it even started. TOF fell asleep and as he lay on my lap his little chest was heaving laboriously. This became serious business when my dear Whynot said it's time to leave a Cub game and stop at the ER on the way home.
Relaxation-Slight Fail. Kick in stress hormones.
FIVE HOURS in that ER, a chest X-ray, two nasal swabs, a throat swab, 2 allebuterol breathing treatments and an oral steroid later we are on our way home with 2 prescriptions and a much happier although extremely hyper little boy.
He's home resting today and I'm off to tackle some long overdue household chores. Wish me luck or send help!
