Well we ended up in a and e and on the day assesment unit on thursday as we had the wosre nigh ever wed, i nearly called 999, but didnt think she was bad enough, but also felt she needed seen but the thought of driving there in the dark with a coughing child filled me full off dread, but then she fell asleep, so left her as she settled.
She was very wheezy and coughing lots and lots. she wasnt struggling just a tiny bit off ressesion with her breathing, but was breathing faster than normal and her coughing was horriable and her HR was sky high, once she settled it all came back down.
Well she woke with a nasty temp, very listless, wheezing so off we went to a and e. To which in my realif the nurse said was the right thing to do, felt there was no point going to the GP as they already done all the could.
Her sats where ok, ish 94-96 but she was wheezing and they could hear crackling on her chest. So chest xray and day off obs.
She was moved to ward and when they monitered her while asleep her sats where 88-90/91 which i know they would be lower when asleep, but the doctor was happy with that, me and the nurses on the other hand were not but they doctors didnt want her monitored the whole time.
So consultant came and she said she was happy for her to go home even thought sats where low as she was struggling lots with her breathing.... just a little fast.
What are your experances off your childrens sats levels and being aloud home. Dont think the nurse was happy.
She now also now had a month off aztromycin and i called her consultants sec and have an app for review on the 30th dec when shes finished her anti bots. really wanted to see the consultant but he will be in clinic to so plumed for reg so that she got in sooner.
Hope everyones doing ok ?
