We're finally home.

It feels like we have been gone a long time. We went to the ER wednsday night with Little Mister because he had a large wound above his left ear about the size of a dime, and it was swollen around it about 2 inches in diameter and very painful. Since he has had so much swelling and inflamation issues already we were a bit scared at the possibilities of this problem. we were admitted to the childrens hospital about 2:30am thursday morn after a catscan determined no tumors or hard bone growths. He had a bad infection and is enemia score from the labs were very low. They were very concerned about his past history and finding wha would make one child have so many infections and illnesses. They hadhim on IV antibiotics every 4 hours and then they unhooked him so he wouldn't feel so restricted. because of the chicken pox and the contagious infection that can get into wounds called MERSA they kept him quarantined in his room. They brought many videos and toys so he stayed occupied. They are waiting on labs that will will give more insight into his immune system and if he has all the components needed to fight off viruses and bacteria. After 3 days in a hospital room I think I was going a little stir crazy, I missed my Big Mister and I needed to move around beyond a 12 x 12 room, and i was in dire need of a shower instead of a sink sponge bath after 3 days. We came home saturday afternoon and Little Mister is tickled to be in his own environment again.




He came to know what the scrubs and blue glove people were there to do.. poke and prod and take his blood and try over and over to get his blood. He is very hard to draw from and it was to watch. He also figured out which people with scrubs were just the housekeepers and loved them. I wanted to tease him and see what he would think if i put on the blue gloves, he was not humored at all and wanted nothing to do with me as long as I had the gloves on. It was too funny.


I hope you all enjoy your sunday and I will be visiting you all soon. God Bless, Christina

You write about your Little Mister's troubles with such grace and peace. I'm sure it doesn't always feel that way!

I prayed for your family.

Oh, my goodness...he looks so sweet. I've been thinking about you all weekend - I truly hope and pray that he gets better from here on out. I'm sure you're so relieved to be home.

I enjoyed reading your comment about your personality type....it seems like I usually end up being good friends, in real life, with mostly choleric or sanguine people, because they are my opposite (including my hubby....total choleric!)
