Home care

Logan has been going on and off of oxygen since we got home. He went almost 24 hours without it, but last night and this morning he needed some help again. We went back to the doctor yesterday and were sent home with yet another machine...a much smaller one though. We now have to give him nebulizer treatments of a steroid to hopefully relax his airway and possibly get rid of that chronic cough he has had since October. I am a bit overwhelmed (that's an understatement) with Logan's regiment of treatments. The one nice thing about being in the hospital was that the nurses could give the meds and I could just call them if Logan's monitor was going off. Now, I am left to deal with it all on my own. I still worry that there are underlying problems with Logan that we are missing...but thinking about that too much is not good for any of us.

I cannot even imagine what you are feeling right now. I'm worried just reading about it! I'll be praying extra hard for Logan and your family tonight.

Have you asked about having home health come in at all? Katie Beckett can help, I believe, if you need extra help. Don't be afraid to ask. I know it's not fun to be mom AND nurse.

I hope Logan's feeling better soon; he's in our thoughts!

I am here to support you and your family - please call if I can do anything to help - I think there may be supportive research indicating lower levels of anxiety and stress for those who eat icecream and I can bring that by at any time! I really can not imagine what your feeling. The unknowns about the health of a child must be more than overwhelming and frustrating. It is great Logan has such great parents to take care of him. I know you would move heaven and earth to help your children and that your doing more than your even aware of to support him! Your a great mom and your family is very lucky to have you.

You are right. What you are going through really can be overwhelming. If you ever need someone to talk to, I'm just a blog away. :)
