I wonder what he will say about Avraham Chaim's oral feedings. I am glad that we caught the pneumonia quickly this time and that he is, thank God, doing okay at home but we need a game plan in place to avoid these pneumonias.<br><br>
#1 Oral feedings, yes or no?<br>
#2 Pulmicort, will it help pneumonia or not They insisted it would in the hospital last time, and had him on two ampules twice a day, but his ped says no and won't prescribe it at all.<br>
#3 Is he on the right antibiotic? The ped of course thinks it is but the developmental ped said it isn't the right one for aspiration because it could be anarobic bacteria.<br><br>
Now I just have to pray hard that AC doesn't cry the whole visit like he did last time. It is a 10pm squeeze in and I am sure we will be waiting for a while. He doesn't sleep well in the sling, maybe I should bring a stroller. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

I hope your appt went well. Eva is on pulmicort for the same reason, so I'll be interested to see what your pulmonologist says about it.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: I am tired. It is 1am and we just got home.<br><br>
Avraham Chaim slept while we talked and only woke up when the doctor moved him to listen and check oxygen saturations. He was satting at 95% which is good. Since the abx seem to be working we aren't switching him.<br><br>
The pulmonologist didn't think the Pulmicort would help, so the ped wins on that. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> He wants Avraham Chaim off of oral feedings until we are done with the antibiotics. Breathing problems make aspiration more likely, so this should hopefully give his lungs some good healing time. If he gets pneumonia again any time soon he is going to do a bronchoscopy.
