Five for Friday: The Hospital Bedside Edition

What a week!



The Good:
I’m on spring break so there isn’t much school related here. The week started great. My dad was in town and we went to the beach, spent time at my grandparents house, and took my daughter to see Disney Princesses on Ice.


The Bad:

Soon after posting this picture


on Facebook, we were at the pediatrician with my son. He had a high fever, but it was just a virus. Yesterday we went back to the doctor and were told that he was showing some signs of walking pneumonia. We were worried about his breathing last night and made an appointment with the doctor first thing this morning.


The doctor sent us to the ER and they have admitted him with pneumonia. He is already looking better than before, but his stats still are not great. I spent last night hoping to avoid the hospital and now I am hoping we are home before Easter.

The little one was just given oxygen and is finally sleeping despite the iv, tubes, and wires. The Irishman brought my laptop and some PJs for me earlier this evening. He is at home with our daughter. We just said good night via Facetime, but I don’t think anyone is happy with the situation.
This is NOT how I wanted to spend my spring break!


The Sale:

I’d planned on holding a sale in my store but hadn’t gotten around to entering it yet. I tried to enter the Spring Cleaning Linky, but it has closed. So, I’ll announce it here.


There are a lot of sales going on this weekend, but at least my title is unique! 


The “Who me?”

I got a blog related e-mail this week that included my name on a list with some of my favorite bloggers. It made my day! I’m not there yet, but to have my name on the same short list made my day!

  9. Your poor little man; and you must be so tired and anxious, with a little one in hospital and the family all split up. Am sending you lots of positive vibes from the land Down Under and am now off to buy a few things from your shop to help with those hospital bills. Hang in there!

  10. Awww, it's so hard when they are sick!!!Last year my middle son (3) had walking pneumonia and my youngest (1) had RSV. I took them to the doctor knowing they weren't feeling well but having no idea how sick they were. We had to sit there and give breathing treatments and it totally freaked me out! I worried and worried over the next week that they were going to get sicker! I'm sorry and I hope he feels better very soon!! It's so hard!! We'll be praying for you guys!!!

  11. Jenny,
    So sorry your little cutie is in the hospital. If it makes you feel better, my daughter (at about the same age as your son) spent a few days for pneumonia in the hospital and is doing great now. It's so hard being a mom just want to take their pain away from them because they just don't understand. I'll be praying for you and your family. Keep us updated!

  12. Sorry to hear about your son. I had pnuemonia when I was 4, and waking up in the middle of the night sick is one of my earliest memories. Sending him well wishes! Hope he gets well soon.
