Up and Down......

Well what a roller coaster it's been with my son this last two weeks. The Doc called yesterday afternoon and said that the blood work they did on 3/8 came back as positive for walking pneumonia. He's had a slight cough the last few days but never would I think he's got pneumonia. His chest X-Ray came back fine but I guess you can get WP and still be okay and not really showing any symptoms. So now I'm asking the Doc's if this was his main problem or a add on to all this. I don't know if you have WP if that makes your WBC and ASO Titer (Strep) still come back high. Poor Buddy!!!

He's got moments of feeling fine like last night. We went to pizza for Lexi's birthday and get together with her Godmom and cousin's. He was feeling better but looking pale and still not himself. He was laughing and smiling so that's a good thing. Then we get home and the rash is raised and itchy and he's warm. He was warm during the night and we will keep him home today from school. We feel so bad for him going through all this.

He's going in tomorrow for a bone scan. It's fairly painless except for the shot at the begining but he's ready. They want to see if the strep is hiding somewhere in his bones. Come out and play strep!

Rob said that this upcoming Monday is the First Day of Spring....we are hoping to get Wolfie back to the land of the living on Monday and get our life going back on track. It's also the day Rob starts his new job!! Yeah for ROB!!!! Wish us all luck!!
