After an IV, morphine, X-Rays, CT scans, and a few doctors, they found a spot of pneumonia on his lung. We were glad to hear that it was a treatable problem and not something more severe, like an appendicitis. After staying in the hospital overnight, Shawn and Tyler came home late the next afternoon. I was never happier to see their faces. Tyler's first words when Shawn carried him in the door were "Mom, I'm OK!"
I feel so bad for all the little kids out there who have to stay in the hospital for long periods of time. The nurses and doctors and hospital staff were wonderful (according to Shawn, who worked with the husband of one nurse, and the husband came in and visited with Shawn for a couple of hours!). Tyler came home with a puppy-dog toy and a soft blanket, courtesy of the local chapter of Project Linus. (what a great group!)
He finished the antibiotics this morning and at the follow-up appointment today the doctor said there is air moving through his lung and he can run and jump and play as much as he wants! He said Tyler recovered very quickly and we are so relieved. It was getting hard to keep him locked inside the house watching movies or playing cars or coloring. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers, I know they made a difference!
