I just got off of the phone with Amanda. Jonathan is still in the hospital and it looks like they are going to keep him there until tomorrow. His lungs sound clearer, but his oxygen level drops to 91% without the oxygen on and they want it to stay at 94% before he goes home.
Gabe is at home from school today. They were in the ER until after midnight last night with him. He was having bronchiospasms which is what he has been having. He also has a bad case of strep throat. They gave him an antibiotic in a shot (which I had never heard of). It is supposed to be faster acting and stronger that way.
Amanda got a decent report at the Dr. He did not put her on another antibiotic and feels that the drainage is just at the surface. The wound is still deeper than he thought it would be and he wants to see her again in another week.
Sean has to go get a heart monitor put on Monday because he is having heart palpitations. They are pretty sure that it's stress, but just want to rule out any other problems he might be having.
The other kids got to visit Jonathan at the hospital yesterday. Amanda said that Caitlin threw a fit on the floor, got a spanking, and then kept yelling that grandma hurt her.
Amanda still has her sense of humor and I entertained her with some strange news stories I had heard lately (like the woman who lived with her dead aunt for a year and another woman who was beat with a prosthetic leg when she tried to stop a convenience store robbery). She did say that with everything else going on she has little time to think of her own medical problems and doesn't have time to be paranoid.
