Day #2 Levi Update

After getting pumped with lots of fluids, Levi is feeling much better. So much better that he wants to leave the room and rip his IV out. It's become a lot harder to be contained in a little hospital room than it was yesterday, and the doctor said we would probably be here until tomorrow afternoon. Ahhh!



We are so glad that he is feeling better, but the nurses said that his white blood cell count was critically high (which means a major infection). It's scary to hear anything with the word 'critically' associated with your kid, but hopefully the antibiotics will kill off any infection very soon! Thanks for your prayers, well wishes, and thoughts- we appreciated them! I'll update with more stuff if anything comes up.

It has to be so hard to see your baby sick. Makes me want to cry. Nate and I are praying for the little guy, and his parents.

I remember when Ethan was 15 months old and had Phomonia...as the days went on in the hospital, it got much harder to contain him...thank goodness for the playroom! Praying that all is well in his little body soon!

I am sure it is very scary to have your child in the hospital...I hope and pray that you guys are out of there soon. I do have to say, he looks pitifully adorable in his giant hospital bed!

I'm so thankful that Levi is feeling better. He looks so small in such a big bed. We are praying that he will get to go home very soon.

He is entirely too small for that HUGE bed!! I am so sorry Levi is not feeling well. I can't imagine how you feel seeing your baby sick in the hospital! Praying for Levi.
