I've Decided to Boycott Meningitis. Who's With Me?

So JD definitely has bacterial meningitis and he is coming up to Primary Children's Hospital so the doctors can check his shunt to see if it is leaking or infected. They need to find out why he is getting sick every 2 weeks. After the surgery, everything looked fine but here we are again, he's back in the hospital and is as miserable as ever.

He had a fever all night last night of 104 that they couldn't get down until this morning. They try to let him sleep most of the time because he is in too much pain when he is awake.

He was able to take a couple sips of chocolate milk and a few bites of a saltine cracker today. They will be putting in a pic line later this afternoon so he won't be able to eat until after that but he doesn't want to eat.

Of course I'm not happy that he is in the hospital again but I am glad that they are coming up to my area of the town so I get to see their sweet faces!

I just got off the phone with De and she seems to be in good spirits, I mean this whole year they have been in the hospital so she's not excited to be back in the hospital but does not want to leave until the doctors can figure out why he is getting sick constantly.

I would be so frustrated!

So sad! It is so hard when the kids are sick. I'm hoping this one hits the road quickly.
