Our poor little Mitchy can't buy a break. He can't seem to stay healthy. Well... 2010 he did NOT stay at the hospital over night ONCE.
Reesa was such a trooper. She missed her school field trip to go to the hospital with Mitchy and me. So today I finally broke down and got her a pillow pet from Mitchell to say thanks!!!
They gave Mitchell a bunch of steroids, antibiotics, breathing treatments and put him on Oxygen. He's doing so much better. They gave us lots of meds to come home with and Mitchell came home this afternoon on room air! We're so lucky really that this happened over the weekend when Jake wasn't working and that Jennifer, (bless her heart) drove all the way down to Fresno to pick up Reesa (and brought me a bag of goodies and books) and took Reesa and Jansen for the day. Thanks, we love you guys!
P.S. I don't even want to admit this, but I made Jake come down and stay the night with Mitchell and I went home to be with #1 & #2. I was SO irritated by everything every nurse, doctor, assistant, secretary said to me I couldn't stand it anymore! Today, Jake told me how he refused treatments when Mitchell was asleep, told them no to IV antibiotics, since we can NEVER get an IV on that kid. (I tried to say no, but my Dr. said they had to at least try 3 times. WHAT!?! see why I was irritated?) I was so grateful for an amazingly smart husband who knows way too much, about things he has no business knowing, and fights for our kids! Thanks Jake!
