Poor Baby O

Owen has pneumonia! He slept with Andy and I Saturday night and around 4 am we noticed that he was REALLY hot. When I took his temp around 7:30 it was 101.5. So I gave him some tylenol. After about two hours it had only gone down to 100.
Well I had plans to take Owen to my cousins baseball game. So when I took Owens temp and it said 98.7 we hit the road around 12:30. At around 3:30 his temp had risen to 103.2!! So to the ER we went.
Little O's oxygen levels were in the mid 80s so he got some oxygen. Then a breathing treatment, then blood drawn, then chest x-rays, and then a RSV test. I felt so sad watching him go through all of that. The nurses were holding him down for his xray and he was screaming and looking for me. Tears came to my eyes because I felt so helpless. Throughout everything he was just crying and looking at me with those sad eyes :(
After everything they came in and said that it was pneumonia. So an overnight stay was in order along with antibiotics, oxygen, and more breathing treatments.
So he is coming home with antibiotics and a breathing treatment for a week, three times a day. My poor baby O!! Love you!
