Diagnosis......

Rotovirus. Man does that poo ever smell. We had a "small" explosion this afternoon, that left puddles on the floor.

Ya. Not fun! I think the paint was peeling off of the walls.

On top of the Rotovirus we still have the double ear infection, and nasty sore throat. He has slept almost all day, and been so lethargic. They gave him some more sugar, and about an hour after that he perked up and is now watching Ratoutille with Andy.

He still will not eat or drink anything, and is throwing up the oral meds. He also is not peeing much so they are watching that. Most of the time when he gets dry and then gets fluids he seems to hold onto them, and usually needs a straight cath done to get him going.

That's where we're at. At least we know what's going on, and that we are doing all that we can. I am so glad I took him in when I did. He has been one sick little boy. He is still on oxygen, but down to a half a liter. Much better from the two.

I think we will be here for Thanksgiving but home on Friday, unless he decideds to do a 360 overnight. He is now working on pulling all of his cords, wires, and IV's out. When he woke up and realized that he couldn't stand on his foot because of the IV, he picked it up and shook it at me and said "See!!!!!"

Anyways. That's the update for today. Thanks for all the prayers. Loves to everyone.

What a cutie, he looks so sweet just hanging out even though he is not feeling well. I am glad you got an answer to what is going on. I hope and pray that Rhett begins to feel better and that you get out of the hospital soon. Praying for you all, Amy

I had a feeling he was going to need the hospital. You must be so tired and worried about Rhett. Hang in there. Thank you for taking the time to keep us posted. Prayers.
