Hospitalized

Well, they don't like what they see or hear (her left lung looks pretty bad) and want to keep Hallie at CHOP for at least 24 hours. They suspect it's a bacterial infection and have started her on IV antibiotics. Her pulse ox is hovering around 95, as long as she is not crying, and then it's in the 80s. Unfortunately, the sound of the monitor beeping is all too resonant for her and scares her, so she was whimpering in the background while Sharon updated me on Hallie's status. Come to think of it, monitors scare me, too.

I can't believe that Hallie gets to usher in the New Year in the hospital. Poor kid.
