Witt has tested positive for the adenovirus. This type of virus affects the respiratory, eyes, intestines and urinary tracts and its consistent to what Witt's symptoms have been over the last 8 days. During the last hospital stay Witt tested positive for this same virus. Typically, this virus runs its course from 10-14 days. Please pray as Melanie and Karen have to wake up through the night and early morning to change diapers and bedding for Witt. This type of virus can cause severe dehydration in infants as he is now experiencing. In addition, his oxygen saturation level has fallen by a couple of percentages as well. Pray as we depend on God's healing hands to guide the doctors, nurses and Melanie throughout the next few days.
