To the hospital we go

Sawyer's pediatrician thoroughly examined Sawyer, then consulted with his gastroenterologist. They both feel Sawyer needs to be admitted to the hospital for at least 24 hours for further tests and slow intravenous rehydration.

Their concern is that Sawyer probably had Norovirus last week, but it may have developed into a bacterial infection that might have entered his bloodstream. He may need IV antibiotics. They want to avoid putting any meds into his gut right now.

I will update once I know more. A simple CBC will help determine a lot, but both doctors believe hospitalization is necessary at this time.

Thanks for praying!
