Update on Zoe - by her Dad

I just wanted to put up a quick note on Jody's behalf that Zoe's doctor appointment today turned into a hospital stay. The doctor was concerned that despite original indications that Zoe did not have TB, he sees some reason to think it might be. Zoe and Jody were sent right over to the hospital (which is an hour away from our house) to be admitted where they will remain in the isolation room until at least Saturday while a series of tests are run to either confirm TB or discover what is causing her breathing troubles. They are not especially concerned that it is contagious because infants are rarely if ever contagious to others, they usually get it rather than give it, but it is standard medical procedure to isolate possible TB cases regardless. Looks like it is going to be a long week for the Hilt family, and possibly an even longer period of treatment/recovery for our beautiful new daughter. Please keep her, Jody, the doctors, and the rest of our family in your prayers. We are trusting God for wisdom and healing in accordance with his good, pleasing and perfect will.

I'm so sorry things haven't started improving yet. If you ever need, I'm here for you (well- I'm WAY OVER HERE for you) and I very much understand what you guys are going through. Isolation is hard on the family. You're in my prayers!

I will be praying for all of these things. I have a hard time keeping my mind off food too, so I can relate to sweet Zoe! :)
I hope to hear the doctors figured it out soon. That's awesome you are focusing on your precious bonding time instead of complaining.

Was she premature? We found out our son was premature (only 3 lbs. 15 oz) He's been having a ton of breathing problems and has been in the hospital. We see the pediatric pulmonologist on May 15th. We are using inhalers and a nebulizer breathing treatment every night. I hope everything gets better for you guys. With breathing problems it can be a long haul, but I hear some kids outgrow them by age 2 or 3.

Praying for you all. So glad that you caught it and that she is home where she can be treated properly. Let me know if you need anything. My sweetie is being treated for the latent type. Though it's the non-contagious, inactive type, there was still much stress involved and I know how hard not understanding what is going on can be. You are in my thoughts and prayers, xxoo, Sunday
