Admission

Nicholas was admitted to UNC Hospitals today.  He has not been feeling the best in the world for a few days now and he was beginning to get short of breath.  He was supposed to come up for a clinic visit on the 25th of November but he didn’t think he could wait that long.  His wonderful doctor told us that he could see him at 3:00 today.  So, John picked him up from school and they hopped in the car and came on up.

His lung function was 37%.  Monday when we came up, the scales said he had lost 7 pounds.  The scales he weighed on today, said that he weight 112 which is 3 more pounds than Monday.  So I asked for a re-weigh to verify.  He actually weighs 114 pounds so we already have a praise!

They have started him on hi IV antibiotics, and they are getting his physical therapy scheduled, so we are on track – I hope – to better days.

In response to all of his blood sugar issues, they are checking his levels every four hours – around the clock.  So maybe we will have some answers soon about the whole blood sugar thing.  I will be asking questions about all the bloodwork they did earlier in the week.

So that’s about it for now.  Please pray for our family.  This is new territory for us because I will not be able to stay here with Nick for the full stay now that I am teaching.  John will have to stay and travel back and forth to work from here at the hospital.  Miranda and I will be at home this time….  I’m really trying not to think about it.

I’ll try to post everyday.  Thanks for checking in.

    Praying for the entire family! I know you wanted to avoid an admission, but it is probably for the best!!! Keep us updated! I will be praying for the blood-sugar issue to resolve or find some answers to why it is happening. Praying he feels better soon!!!
