Third Time's A Charm

Hey all our devoted readers -

I just wanted to drop you all a line since we haven't talked in a while. We'll get with a long post in a few days - you know, the holidays are a busy time. Presents, travel, having babies... the usual.

Well, I think we here at the Bishop 3 have added another holiday pastime: going to the hospital!

Ben has RSV - yes, the dreaded RSV. Respiratory Syncytial Virus. If you feel up for a CSI moment, look back through the blog posts and see if you can find where Ben got RSV. Its pretty obvious.

He's on an IV and has had a bit of oxygen. His oxygen is between 88 and 93% - which is not bad, but not great either. He has a bunch of wires connected to him too - but the key thing is that he's resting, breathing well, and eating. All of this points to him getting better.

The white cast is his IV, which he was a little trooper when they stuck him.

The doctors want to keep him for a few days - so we'll be celebrating New Year's Day in the hospital. When I kept saying that I wanted to be in the hospital with Ben on Jan. 1st, this wasn't the way I envisioned. Being born on Jan 1st, you get free stuff. Being sick on Jan 1st, you get snot. Lots of snot.

So to wrap things up - things are looking better and we'll be out in a few days. So if we don't talk to you before then, Merry Xmas, Happy New Year and all that jazz.

Boy, do I have a way with kids.

- Brian
