T&A recovery requires ER visit

1 pump




2 pump, 3 pump



more....

4 IV boluses

5 hours in the ER

6 IV sticks

plus....

2 doses of IV Morphine, 2 chest x-rays, and lots of tears from 2 incredibly weak, tired, hurting little boys...




The IV fluids seemed to hold them well for the afternoon and evening yesterday and they downed their milk this morning....I am hoping that is a good sign that we have turned the corner.
For me, "Not Me!" Monday is on hiatus this week....though I have plenty of "not me"s that I could share, it is more about "whoa is me" for now.

Please forgive me for the cell phone pictures, but when I awoke to boys with 105+ fever at 0400 on Sunday morning, somehow I forgot to grab my camera amongst the whirlwind of dressing, juicing, Tylenoling, and speeding (hazards on) to the Emergency Room.

Not good at ALL! Being put thru the ringer might just be better compared to what this weekend held.

Guzzling the milk is definitely a good sign though. Hopefully the worst is past!

Poor, poor sick boys. Hope they are all better very soon.

As I read thru this past week for you my heart ached as you are going thru a rough spot right now...I prayed for you and your boys that you and your hubby will have strength to get thru it and that your boys will recover quickly. Rest when you can ~ these days will soon pass...
