Dylan gets admitted to the hospital

Just a quick update. Dylan's fever would not ease last night despite all our efforts of Tylenol and cool bathing etc. So Dylan went to urgent care and was admitted on IV antibiotics and tests. Today the tests reveal that not only does Dylan have the Influenza virus but also Respiratory Syncytial Virus. Ironically the strep throat tests keep returning negative. Is it possible Cain had Strep and Dylan got completely different viruses? Anyway, we have been told that Dylan will remain in hospital until at least Monday. The nurse said it's not common that they get both RSV and the FLU at the same time, poor Dylan :(
