Admitted to Fairview's General Peds Floor

Luke was admitted to Cleveland Clinic's Fairview Hospital at about 1 AM last night for a 103.4 temp and fast / labored breathing (his respirations at home were ranging from 77 to 84 and have consistently been in the 70's since we've been here). He tested negative for RSV but they are calling his virus bronchiolitis following the results of a chest xray. His white blood cell count was also elevated so with the temp there was a concern for infection, which resulted in him being put on an antibiotic drip with his IV fluid. With his heart issues it sounds like we won't be getting out of here till his breathing has returned to normal. Last night was Luke's 15th overnight hospital admittance since he was born 13.5 months ago.
