9 November 2014 - Update - Sunday morning...

I was tempted to feel peed off yesterday when at 8pm, just as Toby had fallen asleep & I was about to do the same (bearing in mind I’d been up for 38 hours at this stage & Toby hadn’t done much better than me for sleep!) the nurse told me she was coming back to use the nebuliser on Toby at 10pm. 327 more words

We’ve been seeing the doc each day at his request, so as to keep an eye. And we’ve been giving Toby steroids each day to keep airways open, plus antibiotics in case it’s a bacterial infection (just don’t know – may all be viral). 133 more words
