Can we make appointments at the ER?

It seems every two weeks, we end up making a trip to the ER with the K man. Our home health nurse sent us this morning due to a high respiration rate and retraction, paired with the fact he hasn’t been eating normally the past few days. 

I had been watching him, of course, counting his respiration rate a lot. It has been high a few times but generally when worked up. I was hoping to avoid this scene, but will, of course, take the advice of our nurse who I trust immensely. 

On our way now, hoping they will simply say he has a cold again but is safe to care for him at home. I don’t think I’m ready for another picu stay….
