Best Laid Plans

Well dear readers, this weekend didn't go as planned. At a little before 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning, my daughter called to say her husband was pretty ill, and needed to go back to the hospital. The home health nurse was concerned enough to suggest they go to the ER, so I picked up LMW and have had him ever since. There was no sewing in my life this weekend, but that's ok. It will wait.

At this point, I really don't know exactly what has been going on with my SIL. They at first said infection, which is probable, then said possible pneumonia, enemia, then possible blood clot...who knows? On a holiday weekend like this, it's hard to catch up to a doctor and get a straight answer. And due to a snafu, my daughter didn't even know he was out of ICU and into a regular room while she sat in the ICU waiting room for Two. Hours. So, she missed seeing the doctor, who told SIL some things, but SIL was not in the state of mind to remember much of it, if anything. In any case, he was given a couple of units of blood and some antibiotics, so we'll see how that perks him up.

The boy child has done pretty well all things considered. He hasn't whined for his Mama, has been eating well, and taking good naps. Getting him to sleep at night has been a party though. At home he has a set routine, but at Nanna's all bets are off. It's been taking me and Grandpa at least an hour to get him to sleep solidly. He tries to go to sleep, but his little legs continue to kick and buck even when his little eyes are closed.

I hope to get him up to see his Mama and Daddy sometime tomorrow (Monday), if all goes as planned. And we hope to know what in the world is happening to his Daddy. Please continue to remember us in your prayers. Most especially the SIL and my daughter, who is so very tired and torn between being 45 minutes away from her son, or 45 minutes away from her husband, both of whom need her.

My prayers are with you all - family illness affects all.

Mercy, I will certainly be in prayer for all of you! I hope she gets some answers. That is so maddening that they do that these days. My husband laid in the hospital for 3 days with a stroke before they told me what it was. I was packing his stuff and taking him out by force because I couldn't get they finally told me. What is it with hospitals? Ugh.

The little guy is so blessed to have his Nanna. I am sure he is confused as to what is going on. I hope things can get back to normal for him soon.
