Garrett was first diagnosed cause he had a very bad cold and couldnt even talk!
Took him into the hospital. Turns out he had a collapsed lung. He was hospitalized for four days i beleive that time. That was when we first found out he had asthma!

That was in January 2005

In march 2005. He was very sick again. This time he was non responsive. He wouldnt eat or anything. he slept pretty much four three days straight. So i took him in. All they did was check his ears... say he had a ear infection, and sent us home with anti-biotics. Well to days later he was no better, he was worse so i took him back and demanded a xray, I refused to leave without one!
They did the Xray and it turned out he had pneumonia (Sp).
We were transferred to another hospital and they ran tests. Turns out that on top of the pneumonia he had RSV... This was the scariest time of my life.
He remained non responsive for 7 days, didnt eat for ten days! He lost 7 lbs and for a 3 yo its very big loss.
He was on oxygen and everything. But he just miraculously got better one day. he was in the hospital for 8 days.

Since then we have had three visits i think. but no more stays!!!!

Thank you to Vicki.. For my amazing Siggy
