Sick little boy

Yesterday was quite eventful. I talked already about Kavi being sick. His cough just sounded icky so I decided to take him to his pediatrician in the afternoon. I had no idea it was going to turn into a long evening.

We got to the Dr's office and didn't wait that long in the waiting room. Great! But then, we waited for sooo long in the small examining room. That drives me crazy. I'd rather wait a long time in the waiting room where there is more space to walk around and look out of windows to keep Kavi entertained.

So we finally saw the Dr. and he took a swab swipe of Kavi's throat to test it, it came back fine. But then the Dr mentions that he is worried that Kavi might have pneumonia! Eeks. And that he wants him to get an antibiotic shot, and then when we leave to go to the nearby hospital for a chest X-ray and blood work. The antibiotic shots went into both legs, and the nurse said they would hurt inside until the numbing kicked in. :( So Kavi cried a lot, of course.

Then we went to the hospital where we had no waiting time at each department but Kavi cried and cried during his blood being drawn. Held by me, arm held by my mom, and my husband was with us by then. Just not a fun night! We got back home about 3 1/2 hours after leaving the house.

We go back to the Dr today around 2pm to find out what the x-ray/blood work show. I'm praying and hoping it's not pneumonia, and that this was just precautionary.

I made this a couple weeks ago in honor of my little boy, so what better time to share it! Art finds inspired by my little boy.

Oh nooo! Taking the little ones to the doctor is so so hard. Its heartbreaking for everybody. My little Charlie has pneumonia right around Halloween, after getting the swine flu, and I remember those antibiotic injections all too well. He had them every day for a week. I hope hope hope that your little one doesn't have to go through all of that again anytime soon, and that hes healthy and on the mend. And what a good mama you are... seriously. Good job taking care of your baby <3
