    Default not sure if i need to be worried?

    Okay, let me preface this by typically if anyone posts like this, I tell them to go in.
    But, I also know clearly right now, I'm a little hypersensative since this past weeks ordeal!

    Nathan is saying his chest hurts when he breathes, I've given him two ventolin treatments, and he's still complaining.

    He looks like hes got laboured breathing again, but I'm not sure if it's same/worse/new normal for the next couple of weeks.

    The nurse told me he would still have a trach tug for a couple of weeks. But again, I'm unsure if it's same/worse etc.

    Would I be uber paranoid to take him back?? Or what do I do??

    For peace of mind I would take him back in.. My motto is I'd rather be safe then sorry!

    I would take him back in just to make sure.

    How often have you been giving him the ventalin? Cause you can give it more if he needs it. But I do say go with your gut too!

    I gave him two treatments within two hours.. he's been on a four hour schedule.. he also gets the steriod puffer, and predizone, and amoxil (yes hes on quite the cocktail.. lol)...

    ive been using the neb treatments (which apparently have more ventolin in them?).. as he won't use the areochamber.

    im really just trying not to be paranoid.. but this is hard.

    I dont want to take him in if he doesn't need to because a) i dont want him to make someone else sick, b) i dont want him to pick up anything else while we're there.

    Would it be worth trying to talk to telehealth? Or could you talk to any of the nurses/doctors that saw him while he was admitted?

    My thinking though is that if the pain is new, then take him back.

    how many doses is he getting each time you give him the ventolin?

    J can have 2 doses every fifteen for and hour. Then if it doesn't help I'm supposed to take her in.
