Jerard is Back in the Hospital

Over the weekend Beth and I noticed that Jerard's appetite was significantly reduced. On Monday (today) Beth took him to see three doctors -- his pediatric pulmonologist and then his neurosurgeon who recommended that he see a pediatric infectious disease doctor. After that, all three concurred that a stay in the hospital was needed so today Jerald is back in the hospital.

I just came home from the hospital; Beth will spend the night there with Jerard and I will stay with the other kids at home. Jerard has an IV and is on a stronger anti-biotic. The thought is that there is a persistent infection that needs a strong anti-biotic to treat.

As always, your prayers are appreciated for our little Jerard. It seems that in his short little life he has had more hardship than many who are much older.
