I have a 5 year old son that gets bronchitis every year. He has asthma too. They take xrays of him to make sure there is no phenmonia. Boy, was I ticked earlier this year when he had it. I took him to the ER cuz I knew he needed EI (early intervention) and I also announced I was in chemotherapy and had to be treated too. They did NOTHING said we both was fine. Next day temp 104.5 on Him! He went in shock, right as I pulled into the driveup by the ER. I carried him in and this time I wore my smocks (aka scrubs) ohhh DR remember me from yesterday... xray revealed he had phenmonia as well and he needed to be treated right away. OMG and I had the same doctor! GUess me in my uniform helped wake her up.....did she ever remember to put me on antibiotics cuz even a cold can kill someone in chemotherapy? Nope. And I did get the bronchitis. I spent the next TWO WEEKS in my doctors office every TWO DAYS getting a shot for this and that, getting bloodwork, getting iv antibiotics, getting treated for allergic reactions and to monitor how I was improving, and got sent to my pulmonologist cuz I'm also asthmatic and nailed my home nebulizer every 2-3 hours. I had such a great team outside of the hospital!
