As you may know, Scout has been hospitalized for pneumonia. On Monday, I took her to the doctor because her cough was concerning to us. That visit ended with an ambulance ride to the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital E.R. They actually sent us home from the ER that day because her oxygen levels looked good(ish) and her X-ray looked not too bad, but still she was being treated for pnuemonia although it wasn’t too concerning. We had a follow-up Tuesday with Scout’s pediatrician. At this point, we all were still hopeful she could lick this thing at home, but she would be followed closely. Thursday, we had another follow-up at the pediatrician and at this point, another ambulance ride was in order, and Scout’s doctor said, “I’m not letting you leave the hospital this time”. Scout’s body is just so tired from trying to fight the infection that she needs more help than we can give her at home. Her spirits were very low on Thursday when she was admitted. She isn’t talking much. She has no will to eat or drink, and doesn’t want to get out of the bed, let alone play. We ask of you, if you will, to pray for not only the destruction of this infection and pneumonia, but also her spirit to be renewed. She’s showing some tiny improvement this morning, but it is going to be a very slow process of recovery for a little body with weak connective tissue. Thank you, friends. We love you.
