Pneumonia and Ear Infections = Jett

So Jett has been fighting a cold for the past week or so, and last night was really hard on him. We decided to take him to the doctor today because he was struggling when trying to breathe. Brett took him in to see his pediatrician and called me at school telling me Jett has pneumonia and a double ear infection! Brett was sent over to the hospital for x-rays of Jett's chest. Sure enough, there was fluid in his lungs. After a few breathing treatments and a shot, they were sent home. For the next 3 days we have to take Jett in to get shots and checked to make sure the pneumonia isn't getting worse.

Jett has never been sick until now, and I guess he's an all or nothing type of guy. For being miserable, he sure has been a trooper. I have a feeling the next couple of days are going to be rough. Wish us luck!!

This was Jett tonight in the bathtub (one of the few things that made him happy).

Poor little guy! I hope he get's feeling better soon. No fun being sick.

Yucky! Good luck with everything. I hate when they feel sick because they are just so sad all the time!

I sure hope he gets feeling better, there is such a sense of helplessness when the babies are sick. Poor little guy, and parents!

Having sick kids is the worst punishment of all time! I have been home with Bridger for the past two days full of puking, crib filled diaper messes, and all sorts of other fun. I hope Jett gets better! Miss you and we do need to have a girls night soon. It would be great to see you!
