Hi all, Alli was really sick, but is now recovering. Not sure yet what she had(lab not back), but I just got dx with strep throat on Sat so that may be at least part of it. She had just started a preschool program and we were so excited about it. We knew she'd get sick more, but were hoping for more than 3 days! My question is about O2...she's on about 1 1/2 liters and satting 97+. Whenever we reduce it her heartrate rockets close to 200 and she becomes very labored. Has anyone run into needing O2 long term after an illness? Just wanting to be prepared. Thanks, Deb
