The lungs have it

This little blipper and I have been firmly entrenched in the Adelaide Women's and Children's hospital since 10pm Friday night... he has pneumonia, turns out. More specifically, the pneumonia is a micoplasma bacterial infection and he also has tested positive for rhinovirus (one of the super common viruses that causes coughs and colds, the same thing that Ash and I apparently have).

Anyhow, the boy is doing a lot better now and is being weaned off of oxygen today. He still has iv antibiotics, as well as oral antibiotics and panadol, and iv fluids, but his fluids will also be reduced today as he is drinking a lot more and starting to eat again. In the end it was no big drama, but it certainly was a hiccup in my Curiouser plans for the weekend... Adelaide clients, hang tight, I am working on a solution as best I can!

It also, unfortunately, means that I won't be able to spend this coming weekend helping out Reedy Creek Nursery and Outback Pride at the ABC Gardening Show in Melbourne (caulfield racecourse)... if you are around, why not check it out :) I still hope to drop in on Sunday but with our timeframes being totally up in the air at this point, no guarantees. Still, even with all the rearranging and unfortunate messing around of plans - I feel really bad for the clients I've had to cancel! - at the end of the day it is nice to be needed and to be here for my littlest little person.
