Reuben in hospital

Reuben went into hospital with Jason this morning after a weekend of sickness, was discharged was a diagnosis of trachyitus not pneumonia as his lungs were incredibly clear on the xray, but he's deteriorated this evening and his saturations are extremely low for him so he's back in UCLA overnight with Jason. He has an awful dry cough, little coming up and he's now on an IV and O2. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery. He's really struggling right now and he's completely worn out. Callum so missed playing with him today, racing round the house together with their trucks, seeing who can go the fastest, avoid the most obstacles.

I'm so sorry to read this...
I hope that getting Reuben some IV hydration and some extra oxygen support helps get him over the hump of this illness quickly.

That picture of Reu and Callum watching Signing Time is so sweet, but you can see that his normal "sparkle" was a bit faded and he just wasn't himself.
Hope he's feeling better soon and can get back to racing around with Callum.

Oh Catherine, Reuben is in my thoughts and prayers. He is a tough little boy, he'll be okay. I'm so sorry for all of you to be going thru this, I can't even begin to imagine. Stresses of parenthood. Thinking of you all.
