My son had pneumonia about two weeks ago. He had a course of antibiotics, a steroid, and an inhaler - and we stuck to them completely and followed the instructions exactly. He was doing great and seemed all better. Then this week end he had a sudden relapse. His O2 levels were down, he spiked a fever (he had no fever last time) and his breathing was rapid. We ended up taking him the the ER last night.
Now the doctor wants to send him to a pediatric pulmonologist...
I guess the question is, what can I expect with the pulmonologist, and can you please help me freak out a little less, because I am seriously loosing it. I am so worried right now.
