UPDATE: It was pneumonia. Apparently it was all over his lungs (not isolated to one particular area) including behind his heart. He was sent home last night with an antibiotic and inhaler.
The night was difficult and Alister continued to battle high fever. After watching him struggle to breath all morning long, my sister and brother-in-law took him back to the ER where he was admitted.
The plan is to keep him overnight and release him on Monday. He is refusing all food or drink so he definitely needs to be rehydrated as well as receive oxygen to make it easier to breath.
As one sweet follower mentioned, we are concerned about Eli’s health as well. At this point, he is healthy. It has been 6-weeks since his heart surgery and the cardiologist has assured my sister that his immune system is actually stronger, not weaker, because of the corrective surgery. Thank you all for your continued prayers!!!
See this cutie…
this is my nephew, Alister, my sister’s son. Alister is 4-years old and ALL BOY!
My sister (the nurse) just called to tell me that this little guy is on his way to the ER with possible complications of the H1N1 virus. Please say prayers that this virus has not led to pneumonia or worse.
And yes…he is big brother to Eli…
who underwent open heart surgery over Labor Day weekend to correct a congenital heart defect.
When it rains it pours! Any and all prayers would be appreciated!!!
