Suckiest Week EVER!

My poor, poor little boy has been sick all week. Like fevers in the 103's kind of sick with the shaking and the puking and the generalized whimpering. It all culminated in a trip to the emergency room last night prompted by a fever of 104.8 and a touch of scream inducing belly pain. After x-rays and iv's and Tylenol placed in a most unfortunate fashion, he was diagnosed with pneumonia and pumped full of antibiotics and fluid. He had perked up a bit this morning, but is now back to feeling miserable and achy, and he is not at all pleased with the new prescription that tastes nasty but is required to go down the hatch three times a day. Keep your fingers crossed that he feels better soon...we could both use the sleep!

Oh my gosh, how horrible for you and Lucas!

Here is hoping that Lucas gets better soon.

That is seriously one of my worst fears--having to take my child to the emergency room. Which now, after I've said this, probably means I will have to do it soon... sigh.

Give him lots of hugs and kisses for me.

Thank you! He is bouncing right back like a little is amazing what a few days worth of antibiotics will do for a sick kid!
