Not so Good News

THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 2008 10:18 AM, EDT
I tell you what. It takes me forever to update Brianna's website and after giving such wonderful news, it's time to update it again with not so good news.
In the previous posting, I mentioned that Brianna had some congestion, well, she was admitted to Florida Hospital last Monday to get it taken care of. Wish it was that easy. Here it is Thursday, and we are still here. Thank goodness though that it is not pneumonia. Right now the doctors are saying it is a bronchial virus and she is being treated with breathing treatments. Plus she is on oxygen because the virus is making it hard for her to get enough oxygen in her blood. We could do the breathing treatments at home but taking the oxygen home apparently is a big deal and they would rather we wait out the virus at the hospital. There is a possibility that it is not a virus at all but could have been caused by chronic aspiration. They will be running some tests to determine if that is the case after she recovers from this bronchial inflammation.
I will keep you posted.
