Amelia in the hospital

Hi. This is Patrice.

Katherine asked me to put a post up for her tonight. Amelia has been admitted into the ICU with confirmed RSV. She's dehydrated. After about 11 or more tries (in her hands, feet, arms, and scalp), they finally gave up on putting in an IV and are just trying to feed her by mouth every 30 minutes.

As of a couple of hours ago, her oxygen sats were 88 and her heart rate was 217, but improving. Before admittance to the hospital, her fever was 103.5 but with Tylenol every four hours at the hospital, she's held at 101.5.


Please keep Amelia in your prayers. Katherine is posting updates on Twitter. You can keep up with her tweets on the side of the blog if you aren't on Twitter.

Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers.

hang in there. My little man (now 5) had RSV when he was 5 months old...1 week in the hospital, then home, then bounce back to hospital with pneumonia for 10 days. he is now a healthy, thriving 5 year old boy! She will be fine! Sending prayers for rapid recovery!

Oh no!! I hope she is feeling better soon. She looks mighty cute!
My daughter was hospitalized with RSV for a few days when she was about Amelia's age. Definitely a scarey time, but we also felt blessed to have access to healthcare that could help her feel better. Lots of prayers coming your way!
