Well, after 3 ½ hours or so at an Immediate Care, Calvin was diagnosed with bronchitis. The good news is that he is not contagious.  He was fine this morning and through lunch but when he woke up from his nap he was coughing.  The coughing then began to include wheezing which worsened by about 7p.  After consulting with our friend (also a nurse), I decided he needed to be seen by a physician tonight.  He had 2 breathing treatments and a chest x-ray (it’s not pneumonia).  So we are taking good care of him and are glad we didn’t mess around with it.  He is prone to respiratory things in general, so this wasn’t too surprising.  I’m happy it wasn’t anything more serious.  The doctor was really great as was the staff.  I was very impressed.  Calvin did pretty well (really if you didn’t listen to his breathing you would think he was fine) – even though he missed his bedtime by 4 ½ hours.  He is asleep now with the baby monitor close to his crib and my head.  Hope he sleeps well and long! :)

I am so sorry Calvin is not up to being his normal cheerful little self. Bronchitis can be so annoying. I am happy it was not more severe, and you can be sure I am saying many prayers for his quick recovery. I also pray that Patrick is well. We hope that they both can enjoy Thanksgiving with the family. They are such a joy. Everyone loves them so much. Take good care of their Daddy and Mommy as well. They are needed with their love and care for two little boys.

Hope he is getting better. I remember my parents taking my younger siblings out in the cold during the night to help them breathe. I always hated hearing that sound of kids trying to breathe (it sounded worse than it was usually)
