Frank-o just barely escaped being admitted to the hospital today. He was placed on antibiotics, steroids, and breathing treatments for bronchitis and upper respiratory infection. If I can keep his breathing under control for the next 12-24 hours to allow the steroids time to begin their work, then we should be in the clear. And, you guessed it, surgeries are OFF.
Last night, Frank-o woke around 0100am with fever 102 and wheezing like crazy. After
back-to-back breathing treaments, his breathing settled down and he was able to go back to sleep.
Both boys were scheduled for their pre-op doctor's appointments this afternoon for be cleared for surgery and receive their bloodwork in preparation for for tomorrow. I am sure hoping that Frank-o's sudden onset of respiratory issues and fever doesn't throw a major kink into the surgery plans. We will go to the pediatrician this afternoon at 200pm and we will see if the surgeries are still a go.
For now, Frank-o is still running fever and just finished another round of breathing treatments. I will update later as to further plans...
