our little sickie

This is a long overdue update! After a trip to the pediatrician on Tuesday afternoon, Aidric was sent to the ER for a chest x-ray. They found a spot on his right lung they were concerned about..thinking pneumonia, they admitted him for the night. After a LONG almost 24 hours of vomiting, oxygen, IV fluids and plenty of Elmo, Aidric was discharged on Wednesday with a diagnosis of atelectasis. A little google search explained this to be a small pocket of his lung collapsed. It's supposed to resolve itself, though he is receiving breathing treatments at home in the meantime.

Luckily, Juliet seems to have evaded the sickness for now. We took them both in for a check up yesterday, and while she has a cough, it's not concerning to the doc. Looks like it will be uphill from here. (for now...)

In the ER:



Feeling better the next morning:

Well... it looks like Aidric got lots and lots and lots of love from his mommy and daddy. I'm sure that was the best medicine of all. What a sweet little guy. I pray that he gets well soon!
