        There is nothing worse to see than a child hurting. Thank God for good parents and their doctors.

          In reading your post I could feel the pain and anxiety of you and your wife. I know the feeling, and my deepest regards for what you all just went through. I am so happy that everything has worked out for that "little guy" of yours. Thankfully he has parents and a medical system that were so attentive!

          May God's blessings always be with you and your family,

              Seanny , I am so happy it all went well. Brings back Memories for Me. It was around
              1973 My Son Brian was 2 Years Old. We lived in the Country. Middle of the Night He could hardly breath. It was winter,and in the end of a huge blizzard. Mom Had to stay with the 3 girls. I had Brian bundled up and got into My snow plow. Plowed about 2 ft.
              of snow on the way to the Hi Way. At the Hospital i was met by, about a ,75 Year old Dr. He told the nurse "get whiskey and Karo Syrup" He mixed it about 1/2+1/2 in a large soup spoon. As soon as He gave it to My Son He was breathing fine. He explained the whiskey opens up the throat, The Karo syrup,or Honey allows it to go down easier. Suggest You keep this in the home, I did.

                as a parent for the last 20 months, i know the feeling you must have been going through. prior to 20 months, it's different with adults.

                glad to hear all is ok and you shared this experience with your forum friends/ family.

                phoebe is looking for her piper. hope to meet you and your son at a future get together.

                phoebe it is

                  Thanks all im still in shock i really thought my son was gona leave me i lost my little brother two years ago and that pain hit me harder friday morning waiting for air support so we could fly my son i was so worried. they rushed him to er and put him on steroids and bi pap a machine which basically controls the bodys breathing luckily it helped 24 hrs later he was contious and asking for fluids and foods. another night in intensive care and his mom finally showed up. the plane would only allow one parent since their was lots of needles and having to hold him while he screamed and they took blood so my partner asked me to go with him. im so fortunate that hes okay he has astma and a collapsed upper lobe kinda of like
                  pnomonia but not as serious. anyways a couple more days and two weeks of steroids and a few months of puffers and he should be ok. anyways thanks all thank god for good doctors and good people anyways thanks again guys.
