First Hospital Stay of 2017

Ethan was diagnosed with strep throat on Monday, May 22nd. He was prescribed a 10 day antibiotic which finished up Thursday (June 1st). Thursday night we had to administer his rescue medication to stop his seizures and we had to do this again Friday morning. After giving him the rescue medication on Friday morning I took him to the ER.

We were admitted and spent the night. Blood and urine samples were "okay," but the nasal swab was positive for a cold virus. So, sometime during the treatment of the strep throat Ethan also caught a cold. He is still extremely lethargic, but we didn't see any seizures today. We got home around 5pm this evening. 
Jeff did an amazing job holding down the fort here at home while I stayed at the hospital and I'm very thankful for the friends that helped out yesterday so that Jeff could come visit us for a bit.

Prayers for Ethan's continued recovery and for no more breakthrough seizures is greatly appreciated.
