Wow ... last night was not fun! I am sick. I really don't feel all that awful, and I have no fever. I have pretty much completely lost my voice and the occasional cough is a barking cough that hurts my chest. Other than that I am just fine ... I even have a lot of energy.
Of course I gave it to Evan.
He started with a minor cough, and got more irritable through the day. By the evening he had stopped eating, thrown up, was in pain, and was panting. We took him to the emergency room.
Because I am not feeling well and Landon was sleeping I didn't go. This is the first time that Evan has ever gone to the emergency room and this is the first time I wasn't with him for a major medical experience. (two firsts that I wish I didn't have to experience)
They took him back immediately, put him on oxygen, took x-rays, and gave him loads of medication. He and Justin got home at 4:30am, with a new stuffed moose wearing an oxygen mask. Needless to say, it is 10:20 and Evan is still sleeping.
I know what I am doing today ... staying home! Maybe the three of us will get out of our PJ's, maybe not.
I am so grateful for the doctors who go to school to help families like mine. I am so grateful for medicine that can give immediate help and relief. I am so grateful that God gave me Justin. What a wonderful man and amazing father.
