We’ve had sick kids around here lately. Ear infections and viruses. E.R. visits. High fevers. We even had to be admitted to the hospital with bacterial pneumonia for three LONG days in respiratory isolation! They tried 5 different antibiotics in 4 days. His fever was not responding to them. My heart and prayers go out to all the moms with really sick kids who have to stay much longer than I did. That’s got to be so hard. Three days was TRYING – I can’t imagine indefinitely. Poor kids and families.
contraband smuggled in! 🙂
Anyway…..here are some pics so I can remember my pitiful, sick little bean.
FINALLY feeling better on the last day. First fluid…popsicle. Laughing at Yo Gabba Gabba. (Thank goodness for Yo Gabba Gabba! If I had to watch one more episode of Thomas or those weird Wonder Pets…..I was going to loose it)
Smirking because I’m letting him eat a popsicle in bed.
They were so reluctant to discharge us because he would go from this smiling bean to miserable and 104 degrees in an hour. They went back and forth with the decision. We begged and promised we would keep a close eye. I did NOT want to stay another night. Sam danced when we got home and ran from room to room for 30 minutes. He was just as happy to be home as we were!
We went to his follow up appointment yesterday and the doctor felt compelled to check Lucie after he heard her cough. Yep…..she has pneumonia and double ear infections too! 🙂 We’ve got some strong antibiotics flowing around here. I need to buy some strong yogurt and kefir after this week is over. 🙂 Gotta get that good flora thriving again.
Have a healthy week!
