His dad tried his best to take care of things - and did a surprisingly adequate job, I have to say. First he tried Albuterol, and when that failed, he whipped out the neb and hooked the little guy up with some DuoNeb.
When that barely changed things, I paged the doctor.
I kinda expected him to tell me to get some Robitussin DM. But no...he prescribed the most hard-core regiment of meds I think we've ever heard of -
- DuoNeb every half-hour - three times.
- Flovent back up to 220 for several days.
- If he's too hyper from the DuoNeb to deal with, hit him with some Dimetapp. (Or take some myself!)
- Also called in some Orapred to the pharmacy, just in case.
This'll be a fun holiday weekend....
More later. Gotta start another neb treatment.
