Overnight, Lucas was admitted to Phoenix Children’s Hospital. He came in with a fever at 102.7, chest congestion, coughing, runny nose, & the biggest issue is his oxygen level was at 88%. Now, Lucas is on nasal cannula oxygen which is bringing him up to 96%. The 1st round of labs show a viral infection with possible pneumonia. Waiting for a 2nd round xray review by the day time radiologist to confirm pneumonia.
The night on call immune deficiency doctor from Boston Children’s Hospital called PCH when we arrived at 11:30pm on Saturday evening. Boston’s doctor told Phoenix what labs & imaging needed to be performed. Plus Boston told Phoenix what medicines Lucas should be started on. Basically, Boston is taking the lead with managing Lucas’ care.
Please say a prayer that Lucas quickly beats this & starts to feel better. Never easy watching your little one be sick in a hospital.
