Emergency Room

Update on The Boy: we are currently in the emergency room waiting for a room upstairs in oncology. There is a spot of pneumonia on his right lung and we are really unhappy about that. More information will follow as we learn it.

I am interested to see what the rooms in oncology look like. I have heard great things about them. We are waiting for vancomycin as soon as they hook that up we are going to go upstairs.

The boy has a fever of around 103 degrees and is short of breath, so there's an oxygen tube blowing air at him. He is resting uncomfortably right now, drinking juice and watching Super Nanny because none of us know how to change channels on the television.

I am writing this blog on my iPhone using new software to take dictation. I am speaking the blog, which is really cool and a definite plus new gadget.

Wow, what the heck... I go back and forth between feeling so sad for him and feeling so angry because this is just unfair. But you know about that much better than me. I hope that he begins feeling comfortable soon. And, I really hope that he responds to the antibiotics quickly. Since you know it is pneumonia and you can treat it, does this mean that he is likely to be able to go home in a few days, rather than staying for 10 days or so? Hugs for your beautiful and sweet boy.
