(this picture was taken in the ER...doesn't he look MISERABLE?)
I leave town for a week and Ben gets sick. Yesterday I got a phone call from Steve telling me that Ben developed a high fever. (1o2.5) He took him to the ER to see if they could figure out what was going on. The chest x-ray didn't come out (probably because they don't know how to position him like I do), there was never any viral panel done (WHAT?), and his white blood cell count was elevated. I can't believe with a runny nose that they didn't test for RSV. Steve has kept him on the vent to give him some extra support and he is currently on cipro and toby nebs. So far he's stable. I'm praying that he will hold out until I can fly back on Friday.
