Jon Kent's Sickies Update
Kent and Jon Kent got home around 10:30 last night. I think we finally all got in bed around 11-11:30pm. We got up at 5:45am. We had to be at the doctor's office at 8am. We get there and the pediatrician wanted to redo the chest x-ray to see if there was any difference. She also wanted to get a blood sample to recheck his white blood cells. Last night she said his white blood cells came back at 44,000. Today they came back at 37,000. His x-ray also still showed the pneumonia unchanged. So he got a half a dose of antibiotics through a shot while in the office. He also is on another antibiotic for 10 days. We are to go back in 2 weeks to have another x-ray done. Hopefully it will be clear when we go back. He is still running a low grade fever (99-100). He is tired and doesn't have a lot of energy, but other than that you wouldn't be able to tell he was even sick. The doctor listened to his lungs and she said she couldn't hear anything. That his lungs sounded clear.. but looking at the x-ray there is no denying it. Anyway, thanks to everyone for all the well wishes for Jon Kent and all the prayers as well.
