Update on Baby Elliot

ChurchPunkMom here -

**UPDATE 4/18**

Last night they did some blood tests and a CT scan on Elliot to test for meningitis and try to narrow down what kind of staph infection he has. They are pretty sure he does not have the MRSA staph strain (which can be fatal), so that is good news, and all other tests they've done have come back negative this morning. They had a relatively peaceful night.

I will update again with any news I hear.


Little E has been admitted to the hospital and will be staying there until at least Sunday night.

The ER doctors seemed quite sure that he has a staph infection, and are currently doing a spinal tap to see how severe it is (I won't put a link up for that.. you don't want to imagine that..).

It's always a bit unnerving when our little ones take ill.. But it can be downright terrifying when they have to be hospitalized. Please keep the Daytons in your thoughts and prayers.

Here's Little E's hand all wrapped up with an IV. Hospital procedures and infants just do not mix well. Poor little guy had a terrible time with the spinal tap, and after half an hour, they realized they'd struck out.
