I am so, so bored. My LO was admitted yesterday for observation because her O2 sats suck. She has had a respiratory virus since Monday. RSV test came back negative, however, they used a suction trap and not a swab. Anyways, here I am, bored out of my mind.

We have good communication with her pulmonologist when she is sick. We call his cell number and he treats her that way. We have a pulseox at home and she was reading at 89-90 after albuterol. When she got to the Dr, she was reading 75. Normal is about 95 and up for her.

I would watch his breathing. If he is sucking in so you can see his ribs (retracting), if he has nasal flaring when he breathes, or is blue under his fingernails or lips, then he needs to be seen. If he is managing well, just take him to the ped monday for some albuterol. If you don't have to, stay away because the hospital is crawling with germs.
