Landen had been sick for a few days...mainly fever, cough, and a high respiratory rate. So, Joe took him to a close hospital to get him suctioned. They, of course, did not like his respiratory rate so they wanted to admit him. We told them we would take him up to Primary's since they know him there and his transplant team is there. We took him to the ER and they admitted him on Friday night. He is doing well, he just needs some oxygen. We found out he has, besides Human Metapneumovirus (hMPV), he also has C-diff, an ear infection (tubes only last 1.5 months) and pneumonia. He is on a little oxygen and they are starting an antibiotic...He is doing well and hopefully not be too long of a stay. Please keep him and all the other kids there in your prayers.

I think sometimes when things are going well, I forget to write down on the blog about how great life is. Why is it easier to write down when we are in the hospital with sickness than it is while we are home and things are going well. Landen is doing great, his heart and his health. We have not been admitted to the hospital since October which is a record for Landen (4 months). He is doing so well. Still delayed in talking, but he is starting to say more. His speech therapist says he just doesn't like to put his lips together, which is how you make a lot of letter sounds. He is walking and running and even trying to jump. He is happy and doing very well. We are so grateful.
Tuesday we go in to the geneticist. Hopefully, no surprises this time. Last time he told about the deafness possibility, eye problems, and skeletal problems...none of which Landen has right now...yeah!!!
