Six hours spent in the emergency department, lots of blood draws, flu test, strep test, respiratory panel, EKG, ultrasound and 24 hours later, we were home. Final diagnosis this time was adenovirus; a common community-acqui
red virus, but for Stephen has been tough to shake after having norovirus earlier this month. Hopefully lots of rest and taking it easy at home will keep us home for good! Much appreciation to the doctors and nurses at CHOP who got us in and out quickly so we could be home for Santa!
Santa did make a special trip to the 5th floor of CHOP all the way from the North Pole while we were there, but someone was getting a much needed nap and missed him.
