Another Night In the Hospital

Looks like Peyton will be staying at Christus St. Catherine's Hospital for at least another night. Dr. Haney saw her this afternoon and re-examined the x-rays taken yesterday. There is a bit of pneumonia in her upper right lung. This apparently isn't uncommon when patients are laying down so much. It will be something the doctor will be watching for with future bouts of congestion. They aren't pushing the feeding too hard until the pneumonia clears up. Peyton's wheezing isn't any worse, so that was a good sign. She has developed thrush on her tongue and a diaper rash.
Sarah said that Peyton was looking a bit better and is perking up a little. She managed a couple of her 'heart melting' smiles today.
