A case of the sickies!

Cough, Runny Nose, Fever, Ear Ache, Sore Throat...
you name it, we have had it.
We have all been passing around sick germs over here for the past two weeks and over the weekend Court took a turn for the worse.

Our wonderful pediatrician sent us over to the ER yesterday for a suspected case of pneumonia after taking a look at our wheezing, lethargic burning hot child yesterday. A chest X-ray, a few vials of blood & an IV for hydration and we had a diagnosis of an early case of pneumonia. Luckily for Mom, Dad & Court he was treated with antibiotics and told to rest at home so we escaped spending the night in the hospital! He had everyone kiss his boo boo from his IV on the way out the door and his smile was starting to come back.

Sweet Court
First & hopefully last ER visit!

We are already on the mend with jello & juice and his feet actually touched the floor for the first time in 24 hours so that is a good sign. Looks like we have a few days ahead of us of snuggles on the couch watching his favorite shows Dino Dan & Mighty Machines.
Wish us luck!
