Ho hum another day another hospital stay.  After an x-ray, cat-scan, some fluids and morphine he's comfortable for the first time in three days and they think it's an infection in his intestine.  They won't know until tomorrow.
We'd very much like for this chapter to be over now, Lord.  

But, alas, Thy will be done. 

 I don't have to like it, though, right?
And it's ok to "lose it" every now and then, correct?

What day is it?

I can't believe it's been almost 2 weeks since I typed the last update.  Jer had another 5 day stay in the hospital, is finally off his round of antibiotics, we celebrated Sam's 3rd bday, I've been taking out my stress on a small gardening patch in our front yard, and the school year is ending in a few days (cue parent and student e-mails!).  Lots of updates to come, most likely to be back dated!

Here We Go Again

We had two visits to the ER today- the first one diagnosed him with epididymitis. After being sent home from the first he was unable to keep the meds down and became dehydrated. So we went back (anyone know if they count that as two visits or one for insurance purposes? I'm just curious) and he had a fever as well. They gave him a second diagnosis (in addition to the first, not instead of ) of cellulitis in the same region. He's on his second bag of fluids, on some very strong pain drugs and anti-nausea meds so he's finally able to rest. They are admitting him for the night.

One thing's for sure, my hubs doesn't do anything 1/2 way! :)

Prayers please, as this go-go-go routine is starting to cause some negative affects on myself and Samantha. Thanks again for all the food and prayers. I think they are the only thing keeping us sane right now!
