I took Montgomery to the state park on Saturday 1/26/13. We took some photos, played in the snow and took him on his 1st sledding ride. it was good to get out, after being cooped up at home for over a week, and the fresh air did us both some good!!!
Anniversary and dates are normally something to celebrate, but as president Obama was sworn in today, I remember 4 years ago sitting in a hospital room, waiting for my d&c procedure to happen, 12 weeks pregnant with a fetus that stopped growing around 8-9 weeks. The only picture I have of my dear Kezdin is at roughly 5 weeks pregnant. As I carried Montgomery to term, I was afraid at every corner, that something would happen. At 5 weeks I almost lost Montgomery, and with the help of progesterone, I past the 12 week mark, but shortly around 13 weeks, the blot clot in my uterus ruptured, another scare that I was losing my precious son, the way I had lost Kezdin so early on. At 30 weeks another scare, that I was in labor, and again with today's drugs and technology, I remained pregnant. I then at 39 weeks delivered a healthy baby boy. So today as millions of you watched the inauguration, I couldn't bring myself to do so! Because 4 years ago I watched the whole thing, from my hospital room.
God has his plans for me, and he chose to bring Kezdin to heaven with him, my dad, and great grandparents. January 20, 2009 is an anniversary I hold very dear to my heart. mommy loves you Kezdin R. Zeerip. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. Until we meet again my child, you are in the arms of Jesus.
Wednesday, January 16, didn't start off great, at 4:30 am Montgomery ended up in the ER for asthma attack, they sent us home. Montgomery went to daycare all day wednesday, I had to work, and when I picked him up, at 6:15pm. He sounded horrible. So we came home, I gave him his breathing treatment, 20 minutes later, he was worse, so I tried another treatment. I mean I didn't want to be the crazy mom in the ER again. So it's now 7:30pm, and my son has been coughing for 22 minutes straight, when his eyes rolled back and he foamed at the mouth. Holy the most scary part in a moms life. So panicked I called 911. It just so happens it was my neighbors mom, who was the 911 operator that answered my call. Montgomery was coughing and crying during the call. Then an officer showed up, and seriously, God was watching out for me, by sending a MOPS mom's husband. Then the paramedics showed up and wanted to take him to hospital right away. They moved his carseat to ambulance. I dont remember much of our 1st ambulance ride, its like a blur. I do remember that montgomery was staring into space and not laughing or crying, which is totally not him. We got to hospital, and if it isn't a severe case they fast pass you, and the doctor that saw us at 4:30am, was there and said another asthma attack. So we get to our fast pass room, and a nurse practitioner asks a couple questions, and decides since we've been there twice , to do x-ray on his lungs. Guess what pneumonia. So they run the RSV test, positive. Wow!!! Thanks doctor at 4:30am for allowing me to leave thinking asthma attack and sending my child to daycare. Oh, and now he has a right ear infection also. So Montgomery is now back on steroids, continuing his breathing treatments as needed and amoxicillin . His oxygen levels stayed between 89-95. He never developed a temperature. It's been 3 days, today was our 1st day not to the ER or doctor all week. Phew! He is doing well, he is still not 100% himself. It's now Monday, January 21st, and Montgomery is doing well. Thank you to everyone for your support and prayers. I love Facebook during times like this when my baby is sick and I feel like a bad mom, it's then that I have to stay positive for my son. Babies get sick and they get better with love, caring and understanding and help from doctors and RX.
