I know everyone's kids are sick, but, there is always a but isn't there, but for some reason my kids get sicker than other kids who've been attacked by the very same virus. Maybe I'm being a little dramatic here but I know that most kids don't have oxygen level issues when they get a common cold.
My kids on the other hand have to be watched with a magnifying glass when any unsuspecting cough or sniffle arises for fear we might have to face the very thing we did Wednesday...the doctor with a report that the oxygen levels in Kyan's blood were less than they should be and his lungs were unresponsive to treatment.
To say the least – this is a nasty bug.
Apparently this bug also encourages my children not to eat. They went more than 48 hours without nourishment and not because I didn’t try – they didn’t even bat an eye at the milkshake I offered or even think about anything edible I passed there way. In fact, Kyan wouldn't even get out of bed - we even tried prying him out with TV but we couldn't shake him.
With the help of some powerful steriods and antibiotics the kids seem to be feeling better.
