Well, at nine days old, John developed a horrible fever; it was the day my grandpa passed away. Baby stopped eating and stopped waking up. We rushed him to the ER and he was admitted with meningitis. We have been locked in here for two days, and they said it would be a couple more days at least. Having my peacefully born at home son get an IV in his scalp, one in his arm, a catheter, 2 spinal taps, and a million heal sticks was the most horrible thing I can imagine him going through. My husband had to force me to cooperate. I just wanted to run out of here. He is feeling much better now. He is being pumped full of antibiotics. I have taken some very hard hits lately and I might be losing my mind.

Don't be afraid to ask for supports or tranquilizers. We're all praying!

Thank you all so much! He is looking better and I was able to bathe him and put clothes on him for the first time in a few days. I am hopeful that we can go home very soon. He is still the cutest little boy I have ever seen! wink1.gif
