Children's Hospital of Philadelphia


Last night I actually went back to the house with my parents and Libby and got some sleep. i went to bed with a sinus headache but it seems to have disappeared this morning. Mike is still with Samuel in the hospital. When we talked last night he said that it seemed to him that Samuel was a little more comfortable. He had been throwing up his pain relievers all day... which is really bad because on top of croup, RSV, fever, asthma... he has an EAR INFECTION to boot! Just like Libby. So he was even throwing up his amoxycillin.

I think we'll take it easy this morning and return to the hospital. I look forward to hearing more of how he's doing.

On a good note some friends of ours came by and brought Samuel cupcakes to celebrate. Samuel was really happy to see my mom and let her rock him for several hours. He also got some presents from the hospital and a birthday cake. CHOP really does a good job of caring for kids.

Dear friend,
I'm glad Samuel is doing a little better! I still haven't had the chance to send the present-package for him yet... we're visiting the family in Gothenburg...but a BIG O'boy package is waiting to be sent at home (together with chocolate...that surprisingly was ate by a mouse at home!!)
much love to you all!

I hope you are seeing more improvement today. Glad your mom could be there too. It always helped me with the guilt or sadness of a missed birthday to know that at that age he won't remember it anyway. He will only know stories you tell and his story will be one of hope, faith, and trust in God for every healthy (and sick) day. He has quite the testimony for a little two year old. God has big plans I know.
