I posted earlier about my son having to go to urgent care for asthma which turned out to be pneumonia. (middle lobe) the doctor gave him scripts of an antibotic and a steriod and told me to get a pulse ox meter because when he was there his levels were on the low side. 89-92. When they let him go he was at 94. She never really explained what to do with it, and you know i never thought to ask cause i didn't really think..
Well, i got a cheap-o at walgreens. When i take my own it says 99..when dd does it 98. When dh does it 99..when ds does it 88, i did a treatment and it came up to 91 and then dropped back to 89.
so, should i be taking him to the er? damnit, i was better off without this thing..it has me all paranoid and shit. The stupid urgent clinic is closed (they closed at 8).
He never had a fever.
and he seems OK..
should i just ignore this thing and get my money back??
I don't know what to do.. lol.
