» Thomas @ hospital
Our 4 months old son Thomas is in hospital since yesterday evening. As his state got a bit worse, we went there to have him checked and see whether additional medication could relief the poor little guy a bit, as he's coughing a lot, having fever and crying permanently. Turns out he has bronchiolitis VRC, which is a virus that frequently affects very young children during the winter. Luckily, it appears to only rarely give complications and doesn't seem to be that dangerous, but it's really tough nevertheless. He's coughing a lot, doesn't get much sleep, has high fever and... that crying... he almost never stops, always looking at us as if he was thinking "can't you do anything to help me ?"
:(He has to stay up to 3 or 4 days in hospital and, hence, I won't be able to answer all emails, IRC PMs and such for the next few days. His oxygen saturation was excellent yesterday, so we hope he'll fight his way through it without complications but as it is a quite virulent virus, it'll take a few days nevertheless.
