Getting Better!

Well, WHG has been one sick little man. Last week he got RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) which in turn led to pneumonia. Tuesday afternoon, William decided he did not want to eat or drink that much, so Wednesday am we headed to the Dr.'s office. After a chest x-ray and still no eating/drinking, we were admitted to the hospital and stayed there until Friday. Over the weekend, William started eating and drinking just a little bit more day by day. Yesterday and today he has been in a wonderful mood and is almost back to his normal eating habits. We had another chest x-ray today and the pneumonia is clearing up.
We are keeping William at home atleast this week to be sure that we are ALL better before heading back to school. I really don't want to wish away time, but then again I am so ready to say hello to warm weather and goodbye to cold season!!!


Just a sweet pic of William from a couple of weeks ago.

I'm so glad that the little fellow is starting to eat and acting more like his self. Like you and I discussed, patience is the key to this RSV and we both know that is hard to do!!
Sawyer was cleared to go back to school today. He looks forward to seeing his buddy, William, very soon!

Forgot to tell you that I LOVE the picture of William in his chair. I might have to bring Sawyer over and sit him in that rocker for a couple of picures!!!!!
