King of the Hospital

I don't know if you can see this picture very well. Kyle took it on his phone. Anyway, it shows how much of an adventure the end of our week has been. Reese woke up Wednesday morning not himself at all. In fact, he was very hot and very lethargic. I took him to the doctor and, after chest xrays and bloodwork, she admitted him to the hospital last night. She was concerned he had pnuemonia. He had to sleep under an oxygen tent, went through a horrible ordeal getting an iv in his arm, and got numerous shots and blood drawn. I slept in the bed with him for most of the night, when we slept at all. This morning, he was like new. He got his favorite food for lunch and enjoyed it while lounging in bed watching cartoons. We were able to come home this evening, thankfully, because the natives were restless. We're all tired out and looking forward to a good night's sleep.
