Mom says Tripp Halstead doing well

Tripp Halstead was expected to return home Wednesday after a bout with pneumonia sent him to the hospital Monday.

Stacy Halstead said she noticed her son’s temperature starting to drop a little below normal on Sunday and that he struggled to breath. When he didn’t get any better, they took him to Athens Regional Hospital, where doctors did some blood work and X-Rays that showed he had pneumonia.

By Tuesday, however, Tripp’s temperature had returned to 94 from a low of 88.

“He’s good,” Stacy Halstead said. “I’m sitting with him on the bed waiting for him to get enough antibiotics to knock out the pneumonia.”

Halstead said she expected to go Wednesday.
