Long Week....

I am so thankful it is Friday and that Corey will be home this weekend. I really thought we were on the up swing of this sickness but Thursday's checkup revealed that Ethan's pneumonia has settled in as RSV. He had run a fever for almost a week but Tuesday he finally broke it, which was a blessing. Luckily the doctor did not think that his oxygen levels were too low or that he would need steroids which means no hospital stay for now. However he did lose almost a pound but the doctor was not too concerned about that right now. We just need him getting those fluids. We are hanging low and will not do too much this weekend so hopefully he can continue to rest and get better. The doctor said it will most likely last about two weeks or so. We will go back at that time to make sure he is on the track to recovery! If you remember say a little prayer for Ethan for a speedy recovery!
It is only 8:00 on a Friday night but I am headed to put some PJ's on and relax. Which probably means fall asleep:)!
