Max is simply not recovering from this illness and his fever spiked again last night. His congestion is causing major issues with his breathing, eating (throwing up absolutely everything because he can't stop coughing), oxygen saturations, etc. I talked with his doctor today and we are in a "wait and see" period.
Without nursing, he would definitely be in the hospital. I am soooooo incredibly grateful we can stay at home and try and treat him here in the comfort of home. We are going to give him another 24 hours to see what he does. Meanwhile, we are doing lots and lots and lots of CPT and suctioning to help clear his airway...and lots and lots of breathing treatments.
