update on david…

May 26th | older posts

Hi friends in the blog world! Wanted to let you know that David was admitted to the hospital yesterday. He was very lethargic and wouldn’t eat. He was throwing up pretty regularly and we were getting really concerned about his hydration. We took him to see our pediatrcian and they decided to admit him. I was REALLY bummed and emotional. Hospital stays just feel like a prison sentence to me. He has been sleepy and cuddly and this morning he was a bit more responsive and even smiled a lttle. The staff has been great and there is a twin bed in his room for me to sleep on. I have been vegging out at the hospital watching way too much HGTV. I also decided to give my self a break from the south beach diet for a couple days :) matty has been fussy and frustrated. He keeps saying “I want David! and he was giving him kisses in the car on the way to the hospital. please pray that david bounces back quickly. we can’t wait to get DAvid back home!! thanks SO, SO much for your prayers. xxxx

    You’ve been on my mind so much today! So sorry to hear that you’re in the hospital – you’re so much in my prayers. The stress of a seriously sick child is huge, and then having the other little one at home needing you so much too…it is just wrenching. Boy can I relate, after my 7 days in the hospital with Shawn’s RSV just a couple of months ago.
    Do eat as much junk as you want and watch tons of TV. I sure did! Actually I didn’t even want to eat junk food or watch TV by the time I got home, I was so sick of it all!!
    I hope your nurses are as great as ours were, and the hospitalist, Dr Raja is good too. My experience at the Sierra Vista pediatric ward was really positive.
    Hang in there!
    Love and prayers!

    Ooooh. I am sorry David is sick, and you are having to spend time in the hospital. We recently did a three week hospital stint, and you are right on about the “prison sentence.” Hope you get out of jail soon:) More importantly, hope poor David bounces back quickly.
