Even sick, he still has a mischievous look, don't you think? Reading your journaling, it must have been so frustrating to wait so long for such simple things! I've been there before and it's maddening. But you're a wise mom for documenting this. You'll be glad for it someday.
Wow, Laura, I just read the whole story. What a frightening time this must have been. It's so hard when our kids are sick. It sounds like you were fortunate to have caring doctors and nurses looking out for both of you. Some day this will be a wonderful record of this time in your life. You've documented it perfectly.
