Update on Quenton...

Well, this past Monday, Quenton was diagnosed with RSV, which we think he got from his sister, who was very sick the week before. Since he is so little, and he was born early, we watched him very carefully, taking him in for a checkup with the doctor every morning. They decided it was time to admit us to the hospital yesterday afternoon because he was continuing to get worse, and they felt he was getting dehydrated. So, we are in the hospital for at least 48 hours, hopefully no more. He is hooked up to an IV antibiotics and fluids, but eating well now. He gets breathing treatments every 6 hours, and then they suction his nose and throat. We'll keep you posted, but hopefully we will be out tomorrow afternoon!
