Grandson has pneumonia

Recommended Posts

My future fishing buddy (aka Papas little boogerhead) is spending the night in a hospital with pneumonia in one lung.  His mom (my daughter) his daddy as my wife are with him now.  Talked to him on the phone (well sort of, he is 3 and was eating a popsicle) and he seems to be perking up a little bit.  Much scarier when it is someone you love and can't do a single thing about it.  Any thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.

First name please? I will definitely say a prayer for the little guy, his parents and grandparents.

His name is Connor.  They are unsure if he will get to go home today or not, when his oxygen mask falls off while sleeping his O2 saturation fall below 90 and the monitor starts screaming. Of course I also worry about other things on their behalf such as the cost.  Between the 2 parents they have 3 to 4 jobs, of course none of which provide insurance, and being working folks they don't qualify for medicaid, the last time they had to buy insurance it was closing in on 1k a month for 2 young healthy people with a child.  This is gonna be tough on them, they had just sort.of gotten their finances straightened out.  I know my daughter worries a lot about such things, so a prayer or two for their peace of mind also please.

Update, Connor was allowed to go home today.  He had all the nurses etc. wrapped around his little finger because we'll he is cute and polite.  One of the nurses came in this morning to give him another steroid or antibiotic shot, knot sure which it was) and asked him "are we still friends?".  He reply "please don't hurt me again".  Glad I wasn't there would broken a gruff old grampa's heart.  Wife said the first words out of his mouth when she got there were "where is Papa", good thing she didn't tell.me til.later because I would have left work and gone to see him.  But I figured there were more than enough people coming and going in his room already with grandma, mom and dad there.  I did talk to him on the phone using the 2 way video thingy and just may have promised to.take him fishing this fall regardless if he is completely potty trained or not.  Have decided these years/days are just too precious for both of us to let slide by.  I cannot express how much your support in prayers, good thught and just letting me ramble mean.  I humbly say THANK YOU, one and all.
