We're Home!

Well Kale finally got released from the hospital on Thursday he was sent home with orders to have a steroid for a few days, breathing treatments daily, and antibiotic for the next 10 days. We will continue to give his other meds as well. Hopefully he will start getting better each day. His appetite is starting to return little by little but being on so much medicine changes his taste's a little so foods he normally likes he doesn't want to eat right now. Kale is very worn out during the days he is sleeping most of the day and night, so hopefully his body will start healing! He is awake about 4-6 hours a day right now.

I'm not sure when he will go back to daycare but hopefully he will recover quickly. The Dr. said that RSV is something that kids can get over and over so I am hoping that he won't keep getting it as it goes through the daycare!

My mom drove down on Thursday to help Erin and I get a little rest from the long days and nights of taking care of everything. Erin has managed to stay well through everything so far but I was not so lucky! I finally got into the Dr. today and was given a prescription to help with the severe upper respiratory infection that I have. My mom had to leave early this morning because she was starting to feel ill. Upon getting home she figured out that she had the stomach virus that is going around! So looks like the family is in for another round of that. My dad and Erin's mom both came down with it on Sunday so I am sure it is only a matter of time before other family members do too!

Marisa has been sick as well she didn't have quite the same thing as Kale but she was very sick as well. She had the stomach virus this weekend then when Monica took her to the Dr. earlier this week she was told that Marisa also has Croup. Monica is feeling a little under the weather from being preg but so far nor her or Michael have come down with any other sicknesses!

Hopefully we will all start feeling better soon so that we can enjoy the wonderful weather we are having so far this month! Today at our house it is 73* I can't believe that it is this warm in February! But I am not complaining!

Hey Stephanie. Jeff told me little Kale was in the hospital. I'm so sorry he's going through this. Benjamin was in last week but only for a bad case of croup. Poor little thing. Emily and I walked by your house last night and it looked like you guys were home--almost stopped but also didn't want to disturb you. Hope Kale gets better soon.
