We had a crazy couple of days around here! Alex had a cold, and it settled into his chest. He woke up early on Tuesday morning, breathing very quickly and retracting with each breath.
Daddy was on a business trip in Alabama, and we’re very thankful for two sets of grandparents who stepped up to make things a whole lot easier in the midst of this crazy week!
My mom dropped everything, came to our house with nothing but the clothes on her back, and stayed until Alex was released. My dad came down to be with my mom on the second night until I could get home with Alex. Keith’s parents kept us company at the hospital, brought presents to keep Alex busy, made phone calls, and picked up prescriptions.

When Alex first woke in the morning, I asked him if he wanted to
stay awake or get some more rest. His very true answer?
“Mommy, it is SUPER DUPER hard to sleep in a hospital!”

FINALLY released at 10:30 PM – HOORAY!
We have a wonderful doctor, and the nurses were all so very kind!
While it was a very late release, we appreciate that his doctor was willing to come at 9 PM after her own very crazy day to release him! :)
We have our very own $130 “souvenir” – a nebulizer for home.
It’s been an interesting week, to say the least!
