Update on Ryan

Ryan has been running high fevers off and on since last Saturday.  We went to see the Pulmonologist on Tuesday and he gave us a thumbs up.  His lungs sounded clear.  So, we we went to see the Pediatrician today to see if perhaps it was just viral.  Since his oxygen saturation levels were low, the doctor ordered chest xrays and more blood work.

The chest xrays came back with pneumonia in the upper right lung.  Thankfully, we have excellent doctors who talk to each other and we have a plan of action to keep him at home and out of the hospital.

About two hours after we got home, Dr. Rhame called to let us know that it's walking pneumonia which requires a different antibiotic than we had started.  It's not a big deal, just a minor change.  Hopefully, we'll get this guy feeling better soon.  He sure has had a rough few months.
