We went to visit our pediatrician who did a blood draw and a throat swab because his throat looked irritated. Strep throat...positive....white blood cell count high...hospital stay...positive. So we checked in at John C. Lincoln that afternoon and expected to stay the night. What we didn't expect...to stay THREE NIGHTS!!! Jeesh! We don't even stay in the hospital that long with our surgeries!
|Day 1 - First sign of feeling better...surrounded by cars in the JCL playroom|
|Day 2 - Get me outta here or Elmo gets it!|
|Day 3 - What bed hair looks like after 3 nights in a hospital bed|
On the last morning at the hospital, I was able to take Zac outside and we sat and watched cars for a bit..."bye bye truck"..."bye bye car" he would say. My little guy is getting so big. Things change in the blink of an eye... On Saturday, it was in the mid-70's; On Sunday, 40 degrees! Pea-sized hail fell hard in our backyard, turning our patio furniture an arctic white. As the hail was falling, Zoie and I stood at the window and watched. I looked at her and jokingly said, "You want to go out and make snow cones?" Enthusiastically, she said, "Yes!!" I laughed and told her I was joking and that although it would be fun, it wasn't a good idea for us to run out into the hail like we do the rain, because the little icy pieces would really hurt as they pelted us. Funny thing is...she still wanted to do it. Guess sometimes the pain is worth the joy :)
