Sick, sick and sicker....

My sweet little man has been MISERABLE this past week. It started Sunday night with a fever then just aching, puking and moaning all the time. He kept pulling on his ears so I was sure it was an ear infection. Nope, he had a really red throat but it was not strep(that's good) He has about 7 teeth popping through which I am sure is just miserable. Poor little man. It has been 6 days and he still has a fever and is still pretty miserable. Today was the first day that he actually wanted to sit on the floor and scoot around. It just breaks my heart. Our transplant team said that it just takes longer for immune suppressed kids to get over colds and flus. I hope that we are turning the corner and he will get better soon.

Last night we had to make an emergency run to the hospital for my other big man(husband). He woke up with terrible chest pains and just not being able to breath. So being safe than sorry we ran him to ER at 12:30 am and had an ekg which was normal, x-ray that was normal, blood work normal-PHEW! But his lungs sounded awful. So they gave him a breathing treatment and some narcotics and sent us home. It was a bronchial spasm. Weird. He is using an inhaler now and is feeling better. With moving, a sick baby, invalid husband, stressed out momma, there is never a dull moment at our house. I know the dull moments are coming soon....

I am so sorry that you have so much on your plate right now. It is always hard to have the husband out of commish on top of that. My second child always got high fevers and was miserable when she was teething. Not fun! I was hoping to go to the park or something with you guys before we go down south. We will be back tons if we don't get a chance to next week. Good luck with everything.

I am praying for y'all to have some dull time soon ;-) I am so sorry about your sick guys. I pray they get better quickly and that your hubby doesn't have anymore bronchial spasms. That just sounds so painful.... We think about y'all every day.

I hope Ryan will be scootin' around soon. Tell Dax he is the man of the house now. Tell Ryan I prescribe video games, diet coke, and Pie Pizza.

I am sorry that you have had so much sickness and stress. I really hope that your little man and big man start to feel better very soon.
Just wanted you to know that I missed you at Heart Camp. Hopefully next year we can do it again so you can all attend sickie free.
