6-25-09

Farrah Fawcett and MJ died and Moses was admitted to the hospital. Rough day all around I guess.

On the 24th of June Mos had surgery to have tubes put in his ears and also to have his adenoids removed to see if that would help clear up his constant runny nose and cough. 45 minutes after the nurses took him away from me the surgeon came in to tell me it all went well. He said Mos has the smallest ear canals he has ever seen. See! There is something little about that boy. Anyway, he said he would probably feel like he had a head cold for a few days and he might need some Tylenol with codiene to sleep at night but he should be fine during the day. That evening he was fine, but he started getting up a couple hours after we put him to bed and sometime in the night he started getting a fever. In the morning his fever was 101 and I called the doctor when they opened. Mos was miserable. He wasn't moving at all, he was just laying on me and couldn't even sit on the couch. The nurse wasn't calling me back and so I kept calling. Finally Matt walked over to their office and told them they really needed to see Mos. He hadn't eaten or drank anything the whole day. I took him in and the Dr. said he didn't know what was going on and Mos needed to be admitted to the hospital. By the time we made it to the hospital his fever was 104 and his eyes were glazed over. They did a chest x-ray and some blood work on him and their "best guess" is that he somehow got pneumonia from being intubated. We spent 3 days in the hospital and are now home working on getting our energy back and devising ways to sneak Mosey's medicine into him.

We are glad to have our boy back.

Poor baby! Glad he's ok.

I hear a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down...but personally I like to mix it with juice.
