X-Ray Results

Ethan's pediatrician called us last night (like, upwards of six times because I had forgotten my phone at home) to share the results of Ethan's chest x-ray.

Once again, my jaw dropped as Jeramie relayed the message to me - the doctors "can't rule out pneumonia" based on the x-ray images. It's not an obvious case, but there are things showing up on yesterday's x-ray that haven't been present on images before. In his pediatrician's opinion, it very well could be "brewing pneumonia", which we plan to stop before it can get any worse.

So, a 10-day course of antibiotics it is ... Ethan's medication list hasn't been this extensive in a looooooong time. Your continued prayers are greatly appreciated.

ugh. So sorry this has been such a wretched week for you all. Praying the RSV is kicked quickly & that the pneumonia doesn't even have a chance to settle in! :)

Was it pneumonia? I hope the antibiotics kicked in right away before it fully “brews”. Typically, two days of treatment is enough to improve one’s condition, so a 10-day course for him should be enough to kill all the viruses or bacteria that’s causing the bug. I hope he has recuperated well from this sickness. Have a good day!
