Home Again

We finally got home yesterday. Just four days in the hospital this time. I'm relieved. I think. Little Guy had some blood work done that was "moderately abnormal" and may indicate some pulmonary hypertension. But, the echocardiogram is okay for now.

We stayed a couple more days after that to try and observe and understand why his sats go lowers. We really have no answers. It does look like maybe he's developing some asthma. It wouldn't be a huge shock since two of his brothers have asthma. But it would be a big frustration. Poor kid.

Sooooo, we are home. And we're thrilled about that. We are cautiously optimistic that all is well. In other very exciting news, all of our kids except Number One got their h1n1 vax's yesterday. Number One has to resolve his egg allergy before he can get the shot, so we're waiting for his blood test to come back.

Ahhhh, the joys of parenthood.


  1. Glad you are home again.....hope you get to stay there for a while!

  2. Happy news that you are at home, and that the little guys have gotten their vaccinations. Especially the littlest guy! I hope he doesn't develop asthma, though I suppose they can treat it with a nebulizer if needed? Our prayers are still with you guys!
