thanks everyone. an update.

It's 9:15 and I've finally got the boys tucked into bed and settled down. It's the 1st time I've been home all day.

I am now overwhelmed with all the messages on my answering machine, voice mail, and all the emails in my inbox. I can't say thank you enough to everyone for caring. And I do apologize for not getting back to you. It's been an exhausting day but thankfully my stress level has been low. (living in La Grange will do that to you I guess.)

Kreg had a follow up appointment with the dr. this morning. He wasn't doing any better and after listening to him the dr. said he had pneumonia. And he wanted Kreg to check into the hospital (here in La Grange). He was showing signs of dehydration and was still running a fever, since Monday afternoon. Upon checking into the hospital, a chest x-ray confirmed the pneumonia. They started him on fluids and an antibiotic via an iv. But told him he was looking to be in the hospital until Friday and that's if he was fever free for 24 hours. And they wanted to see his blood tests results to check his white blood cell count. He seemed to be getting better but this evening his fever rose to 101 again and the chills were back. Not a good sign. They are now doing breathing treatments every couple of hours. And we really won't know more until the dr. sees him in the morning. I just don't understand the fever part if he has been on antibiotic's for 2 days now.

I will update everyone just as soon as I know something. I will have my mom's laptop with me at the hospital tomorow to better update. Please just keep us in your prayers....and thoughts........

I'm off to get some rest.
