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!
