My boy is sick

I'll mention more in a later post, but Casey and I took Miles to the pediatrician this morning because he's had some congestion, but last night it got pretty bad. Long story short: after a breathing treatment and then a chest x-ray, Miles was admitted to the hospital this afternoon with pneumonia (mostly on the right side). The doctor is estimating him to be there about 48 hours. He's had an IV put in his tiny hand for antibiotics, he's having breathing treatments every three hours, even through the night (try explaining that to a 22-month-old), and he is sleeping under a mist tent.

So far Miles has taken things in much better stride than we had hoped. Casey will be staying the night with him tonight and I will be there with him tomorrow night. I don't know if I'll get much sleep either night. We covet your prayers.

I'm so sorry, Tracey. I will be praying! It's funny, I had just checked your blog wondering if you had written about it and then 5 minutes later you must have posted and told me on FB.

I know it's hard but do try to get some rest tonight, I know you need it girl!

((hugs)) to all of you and will check in with you tomorrow.

Hey Sarah, thanks so much. Yeah...I know I need the rest. It's just so weird having my boys gone and me at home -- I'm used to the opposite! The cat's here with me, though. =)

Thanks so much Kristi. Hi to you and yours from me. =)

Poor Miles. I'll be thinking about the little guy. I want to see him get better.

Hi Tracey, I know how horrible it feels to have a little one in hospital with tubes stuck into little hands! :(

We're all praying for little Miles. Keep us updated when able.

How's Miles today? I'll check back later for an update.

How scary. I pray he gets better soon and that you all get some much needed rest!
