Back to the hospital

Just when you think Josh is better, he goes back to school and comes home with a fever and vomiting. When the fever spiked up to 104.3 last night we decided to head to the ER. They admitted him about 11 p.m. last night. They've taken blood cultures, swabbed his sinuses and x-rayed his chest. So far, he's positive for RSV (a upper respiratory infection) and they thought they saw a spot on one of his lungs and took more x-rays. So, possibly pneumonia.

 They started him on Vanco in the ER last night. Today the changed that to a couple of more broad-spectrum antibiotics, Cipro and an antibiotic to be named later. Labored breathing but he's been resting all morning. He's pretty much out of things right now. The fever's still pretty high, but responding to Tylenol.
