Charlie was admitted to the hospital yesterday and was scheduled for a CAT scan last evening. They are working him up for pneumonia...he had an abnormal chest x-ray and it appears that he has in infiltrate in the lower lobe of his right lung.

As I left yesterday, he was getting plenty of IV fluids, an antibiotic, and pain meds. Charlie was also suffering from dehydration upon his admission to the ER, probably due to Charlie's lethargy and loss of appetite.

Evidenty what happened yesterday is that the visiting nurse came to see Charlie and didn't like the way he looked and his vital signs were not good...heart rate was up to 150bpm (norm is 60-100bpm) and his pressure was supposedly low. She called Potz and it was recommended he be taken to the hospital.

I will continue to update today as I hear from Kim.

Thank you for the prayers...God Bless
