It's been quite the week for this little guy and it's only Wednesday! On Monday, I spent three hours with him in the ER from 8:30PM to 11:30PM because when bedtime came we discovered a sore and a large area that was very red and hot to the touch on his right elbow. He made it to school all day yesterday and then when he got home, the rash had spread A LOT so daddy took him back into the ER. This resulted in him being admitted and was put on IV antibiotics. He was such a strong and brave boy through it all - even when getting poked quite a few times to get the IV started and having his blood drawn. I am very proud of him for that. He was finally released at 4:00 this afternoon and we are all very tired ~ Blake, having to live through it, and his daddy and I are exhausted from the worry and late nights with him. I think we are well on our way to recovery - he will be on a hefty regiment of antibiotics for the next 7 days but we are going to kick this infection out of his body. Unfortunately, we aren't sure what caused this... Possibly a bug bite, or a scratch that just got infected. That's quite frustrating because we don't know how to prevent it from happening again. He is such a precious and adored and loved little guy for sure! When his brother and sister woke up this morning to find that he didn't come home with daddy, they both wanted to say a prayer for him that his recovery is swift and that he could come home soon. I recorded them praying to show Blake when I got to the hospital this morning. Of course, my worry throughout the night made me insist on Mommy cuddles (which, thankfully, he doesn't turn down yet). He was a happy boy all throughout because he said it felt like he was in a hotel and the best part - he got lots of junk food from both grandmas and one grandpa who came to visit and he got to have control over the television without fighting with anyone about what he wanted to watch.
