We have had a good day today... I would say that Benson is about the same as he was yesterday and he was better yesterday, so that is good news. They have decreased his oxygen to 1/4 a liter and are hoping to have him off of it tomorrow while he is awake and on it only when he sleeps. The next step will be to be off of it completely to see how that goes. He still has some wheezing and a little "crackle" when they listen with the stethoscope, so we're still doing the breathing treatments every three hours.
Hannah was discharged from the hospital today at 3:30. They sent her home with breathing treatments that she will continue to have for 6-7 days. She never had to have an IV or antibiotics or oxygen or any of that yucky stuff, so for that we are grateful! She does still feel very crummy though. He throat is still very red and scratchy and when she sneezes and coughs it upsets her greatly, also making it tough for her to sleep. So, please continue to pray for healing for her.
On the other hand, I think Benson is the happiest sick baby that there ever has been. All of the nurses walk in and say, "He sure doesn't look sick!" And then he lets out one of his hacking coughs and they say, "well, maybe he still is..." You definitely can't tell he's as sick of a baby as he is just by looking at him, that's for sure!
We appreciate all of your prayers so much. It is such a blessing to be part of the body of believers during times like these!
