March 25, 2010

Well we have been off of antibiotics for about 24 days and had to start theme back up again. We are on a 14 day supply of Ceftin and on all the nasal sprays and of course the nubulizer treatments throughout the day. If we don't show signs of improvement by the beginning of next week then back we go to see our immunologist.

Jacob made a MAJOR break through last night during his infusion. For the first time ever he didn't fight and it only took one person to do it. I am so proud of him!

March 15, 2010

Well we broke our long streak of not being sick. On February 10th Jacob shot up with a 104.9 degree fever. I took him to the Dr., unfortunately his regular pediatrician was not in the office and we had to see another one in the office. I HATE seeing another doctor in the practice, they don't understand him! Anyway, she wanted to test him for strep and I insisted on getting him tested for the flu and guess what? He came back positive for the flu that came back as H1N1. Great. I asked for an antibiotic since the flu ALWAYS turns into a more severe bacterial infection. Well she refused since the antibiotic doesn't help with the flu..No kidding!

Several days later we had to go see him immunologist since he turned bacterial. We got started on on a 14 day supply of Ceftin and had to go on nebulizer treatments since of course it is in his lungs. He got lung function test and it looked good but a little low. Anyway, he has recovered and told me "The swine flu wasn't as bad as thought".

He started FINALLY not fighting us over his infusion, we had been having to sit on him to hold him down. I tried putting a blanket over his head so he couldn't see what was going on and that did it...two weeks in a row no fighting!!!!
