Our Valentine’s Day was sponsored by Health Partners Urgent Care and Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis.
Mathias has been battling a cold since Tuesday evening. He seemed to be getting over it by Friday afternoon, but Saturday we awoke to find our son to be extremely lethargic and breathing rapidly. We headed to an urgent care center near our apartment, and after about an hour and a half there they referred us to Children’s Hospital, where we are now. After a battery of tests, we now have a better idea about what Mathias doesn’t have than what he does have. The best guess is that it’s something upper respiratory in nature, kind of like pneumonia, but without some of pneumonia’s effects.
Apparently there is a lot of this going around, whatever it is. Mathias is on oxygen for now, and may have to stay on it for a day or so as his body fends off whatever its afflicted with. If we’re lukcy he’ll be able to head home tomorrow, but Tuesday is sounding more likely.
Well, here’s the nurse for more tests. More later.
