Hi mamas~ I think ds2 has either bronchitis or pneumonia. He had a cold about 6 weeks ago or so then had a residual cough here and there......last week, the cough started getting worse. Sat night he woke up wheezing and sounding very crackly in his chest. He couldnt get comfortable. Yesterday (Sunday), I gave him some albuterol through the nebulizer because he was really tight sounding in his chest (normally doesnt have asthma).
I also have been giving him SA and this morning gave him some mag and raw honey.
He has a little fever and cant run around much or he starts coughing like mad....

What more can I do for him at home? What would be the benefit of taking him into the dr.? What else besides pneumonia or bronchitis could it be that taking him into the dr. would benefit him?

(I dont know why I cant just trust my ability and his body's ability to heal itself but I really truly worry that I'm missing something , yk?) thanks!

Here's me I married then we had dd15 , dd11 , ds10 , and then and now we and I blog!
