A Little Scare

So Tuesday morning Caybay started acting 'off' again. Once again this is so hard when you know something is bothering him and he cannot communicate his emotions. We watched him closely and he was getting more and more tired and by Wednesday afternoon, his pediatrician said to take him to the local ER. We weren't at the local ER long before they called Children's for Transport, this time it was an ambulance and not a helicopter. By the time we got to Children's, Caleb was getting more and more lethargic and not waking up and when he was up he was dry heaving. So after five sticks, they finally started an IV and with two very large fluid boluses he wasn't perking up. They then decided to do some xrays of his head to check his shunt and his belly to check his intestines. All looked good. But, he still wasn't waking up which yielded and admission. We were hoping we would never see the inside of the new Children's Hospital patient rooms, but we did. WOW they were gorgeous compared to what we lived in to for a year and a half at the old hospital. They had bathrooms in them with showers! Wow that would have been nice to have that when we were there! I am so happy they have that for families now! So when we got up to the room Caybay perked up and we got to see some of our old friends, nurses and docs when we were in his room! He stayed up for a bit but quickly went to bed! By the next morning I was hoping he would be more perky, but not so much. I asked for some more nausea meds as we were hoping with that maybe we could get him to eat and was hoping that would really perk him up. It slowly did, and as more and more labs came back normal, the talk of him going him if we felt comfortable with that, was being discussed. We know the docs so well and I love that since they know us and feel confident that we know signs of when to bring him back if need be, they gave us the option to bring him home. So he is home, still pale but acting more and more like himself. We aren't really sure what caused it. We are thinking a virus. It is so hard when you have a child that can't communicate and has such an extensive medical history. But he is relaxing now and hopefully continuing on the mend. Thank you all for your prayers!

God Bless you all!!

God Bless Caleb and Camryn!!
