Gavin's cold has found him in the hospital again! He progressively got worse over the weekend, so I took him into E.R. this morning. He actually got worse while we were in E.R., so I guess it's a good thing that I brought him in when I did. I think that he made himself get worse when he heard that they were going to admit him to stay. He decided that if he had to stay he better get real sick so that they would put him in Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, instead of being put in a room on the regular floor. He knows that you get more one-on-one attention in ICU, so he dropped his oxygen sats real fast so that he could earn a trip to the more exclusive floor! I'm actually happy about this. If we have to be in the hospital, the ICU is a much better place to be. Gavin knows what's best!
Pray that they can figure out what is wrong. Right now they think it could be a number of things. (pneumonia, RSV, bronchitis, pertusis or none of the above.) I'm hoping that it's something bacterial, that way antibiotics will help to get him well and home again faster. He is struggling to breathe and is on about 4 liters of oxygen right now. Pray that he doesn't get any worse and that he begins to feel better soon. Right now he feels and acts miserable and it's breaking my heart! Thanks for your prayers!
"Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of righteous man avails much." James 5:13&16
