Well, I found a connection at the hosptital - we'll see how long it lasts. Today's news so far: Nova has pneumonia.

I could have bet on that 2 days ago when he was laboring so hard to breathe. The good news about that is that they're treating it with an antibiotic that targets the bacteria that causes pneumonia, rather than a general one, so he should start getting well pretty quickly.

He actually looks better today than yesterday, even though we know his lungs have fluid on them. He's resting, breathing more easily than he was last night. Poor little guy just isn't going to do this the easy way.

More later, should there be more to tell.
