Does this look like a boy who has pneumonia?
So I sent him to school day after day with a cough, thinking it was allergies/asthma. I even told his teacher that if he did not sound any better by the weekend I would take him in to see the Dr. sometime next week.
Imagine my surprise when I got a call Wednesday from the school nurse saying he was running a fever.
Imagine my greater surprise after making an appointment and finding out the Dr. wanted chest x-rays.
Imagine an even bigger surprise (along with a big dose of guilt) when he is diagnosed with pneumonia.
You just never know with this one.
He was given a big bad shot. (So big and bad he could not walk.)
Now he has extra breathing treatments.
And enough doses of medicine that I feel the need to write them all down and check them off to keep track.
He still sounds the same.
And he is still acting the same.
Like I said, you just never know with this one.
