Update

Hey everyone. I wanted to let you know that we were admitted into the hospital Monday. Artoo has pneumonia, and is on oxygen and drugs to help him out.

At this stage there's not much we can do except wait for the antibiotics to kick in so we can wean him off the oxygen and bring him home.

Thanks for understanding. Hope to be back to our regular challenge schedule as soon as possible.

Love,
Laura and Artoo.

  34. I've been checking in periodically to see if there are updates on Artoo - my son was a preemie too and while we didn't have as many challenges as your poor kiddo, we did have a week back in the hospital at about the same age with pneumonia. Keep your chin up! It does get better!

    I'll admit I've also been checking in to see if there is a new weekly challenge posted, too. While I wait (patiently!) I went back to the beginning of the weekly challenges, thinking this is a good time to catch up. I got up to #8, and discovered that this isn't the first time Artoo's been in a respiratory fix.

    I thought it might be nice to do "Hearts for Artoo" this week. Here's a link to that challenge post: http://iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com/2011/02/weekly-challenge-8.html - if you'd like to join in.

    Cheers!
