/blog on

So I picked Matthias up from daycare today, and one of the ladies that works there mentioned that when Matthias got up from his nap, his lips were blue. She wondered if that'd ever happened to him previously.

He's got the sniffles and a cough, but we've been to and from the Dr's about it and his lungs are clear. (He also had his adenoids removed and tubes put in his ears to drain ear infections).

I really don't want to think it's cyanosis, but I'm definitely going to take him to the Dr's in the morning and have his lungs checked again, and ask for an exam for his heart.

/blog off

Anyone else experienced this?

I didn't see it; he's been running and playing and acting completely normal all day.

I've been in to check on him twice so far tonight and he's breathing normally.

I called my sister-in-law (who's a DR) and she said if he's not having trouble, his fingernails aren't blue then to keep an eye on him until the morning and call our pediatrician then

Survey says: Pneumonia

He's on broad spectrum antibiotics right now. He's still laughing, playing and running around and not feverish, so it appears it's 'walking pneumonia'.

Glad to hear you found out what it is. Little ones can get sick so fast. I hope he is better very soon.

You have really good caregivers to have noticed that. I'd buy them a gift happy
