My son Bennett was admitted to the hospital tonight. He started having cold symptoms Sunday and wheezing this morning. I called his Pediatrician but she said to observe him for 24 hours and bring him in if the nebulizer treatments aren't keeping him clear for 6 hours. When
I got home from work, he was working pretty hard to breathe so I decided to bring him into the ER just in case. His oxygen levels were good but the x rays show pneumonia in both lungs. They admitted him and started iv antibiotics. The doc said if he is doing well he can come home. Please say a prayer for Bennett and in particular a short admission and string lungs. For those of you who don't know the background, Bennett was born last May at 30 weeks. He has a lung disease called bronchooulminary dysplasia and was on oxygen until he was 6.5months old. He has a weak immune system and very fragile lungs. He spent 10 days in the hospital in March on oxygen from bilateral pneumonia. Little guy has had a rough go!


  1. Give Busy B lots of hugs and kisses from Nana! I will be thinking of him and praying the good Lord will help him heal fast. That little guy is too precious to have to go thru this again. Bless his heart! Let me know if you need anyting or an ear to bend!

  2. Praying for you guys!!! He's a tough little guy and he'll be ok!
