Heading toward another night

I'm wrapping up the day at work as Annie prepares to head back to the hospital after a much needed nap. I'll watch Silvi tonight; she's been breaking into bouts of tears for no apparent reason these last few days. I know it is hard on her as well. She and I will take the night to do something fun together.

There is no change in Ian's condition... More blood tests, monitoring his breathing, still can't keep the milk down, not urinating enough, another IV, etc. I'll probably write another update before the evening's done once I hear from Annie. So long...

Update: 8:30pm - Ian is doing well for what he's been through. He's starting to keep his food down and getting some good rest. His temperature is a bit high but not quite a fever. They are conducting a sleep apnea test tonight and that will determine whether he can come home tomorrow or not. That's where it stands at the moment.

It rained all night so Silvi and I stayed in and played PBS Kids games on the computer and wrestled, before tuning in to yet another episode of Road Runner to help bring in the sandman. I'm going to crash early tonight. Good night...

Tom,
Thanks for leaving a message on my blog. We're praying for Ian and your whole family. I hope you and Silvi have a fun evening together. How old is she? Our Nathan just turned two about 3 weeks ago.

Thanks, Jessica and Jennie.. Silvi turned two in April and we had a good night just playing games together. Thanks for the prayers and I wish you the best as you prepare for your weeks and months to come.

I just found your blog, and I can't stop reading it tonight.

I also have an Ian (2 1/2) and also Chase (5 mos, T21).

You are all in my thoughts.

Thanks Laurie... I'll pop over in a bit to check out your site, especially with another Ian around. :)
