I called the doctor's office and got an appointment for 1 hour later. I took him in and he had a fever of 100.3, had double ear infections, sore throat, and wheezing. The doctor was very concerned and wanted to test Mac for the Swine Flu, Pneumonia and Strep Throat. He immediately got a breathing treatment and got a shot of antibiotics in both of his legs. We then went to another office to take a chest x ray to see if Mac had pneumonia.
The final result is no swine flu, no pneumonia, 2 ear infections, and wheezing as a result of possible allergies (made an appt to see an allergist on Sept. 9th). We did breathing treatments throughout the weekend with the final treatment being tonight. Mac was great and did not fight us when he had to do them. He was such a big boy!
All I can say is that I left him that morning with Ellen and he was fine and things turned on a dime. Ellen knows her nephew just as well as his mommy does and she did not hesitate to call me. Had she not called me when she did and it could have been so much worse. Thanks for being such a great Aunt! Mac and John Lawrence love their Aunt Ellen!
