Hospital - blah

Yesterday morning Natalie was admitted to the hospital for respiratory problems. She had a cold that went to her chest that requires steroids and breathing treatments with a nebulizer. She also has an ear infection and a urinary tract infection. She is on 2 antibiotics, the breathing meds and steroids to heal her lungs. She will be there for 3-4 days until her oxygen levels when she is sleeping stay at 92 or better. She is running at 92+ easy during the day but drops to 87 at night. So after she has achieved this, we go home 24 hours later.

I am living at the hospital with her, I am just home for clean clothes. I'll post when I get back, I just wanted to share.

Poor Natalie! Praying for you both! Maybe they can give Mom some good medicine, too!
Let me know if you need anything!

Not a good way to start the new year. Poor Natalie and poor mommy, too. I'll be thinking of you both. And hoping you're on the mend soon.
