We are home!

Thank goodness.

My Mom came and got us and we just got home a little while ago. I guess Mom's car was hard on Aus' back and he was crying pretty good for a bit but seems to be relaxing comfortably on the couch now. His back is probably sore from his tap.

Such a hard ordeal. I don't know how some Mom's handle a child's lingering illness so well. It's so mentally and physically draining.

My Mom is at Manley's filling a prescription for Diastat. It's a seizure med that you give rectally if a seizure lasts more than 5 minutes. I guess we'll be carrying that around with us for a while. I hope to God that he doesn't have another seizure, it's so frightening. I suppose if it does happen we will go the anti-seizure meds route. Again it's hard to gauge whether it was simply a child's fever that caused the seizure or if it was his brain damage but it was probably a combination of both.

Oh my, no local pharmacies have the stuff. Finally Walgreens in Saginaw is going to hook us up. Mom is going to head out there now.

Austin seems good for now. Just watching Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas. Yahoo! Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. It is much appreciated.

Dawn, I read your first post at work, but I can't comment there. I wanted to let you know I have been praying for all of you. I can't imagine how hard that would have been. I already knew you were strong, but man! Well, hope it was just a febrile seizure.

Glad to see he's home and resting!! What a scary ordeal. We were going to walk down to the other ball diamond and see if Tommy was playing, but Drew had an amazing game tonight, so I never got a chance!! Adam said he thought it was dark blue against maroon! Darn.

Anyways, keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. Please know Tommy is more then welcome here if something should arise. The boys would love to hang out again anyways!

Happy Mothers Day on Sunday!

Thanks so much girls! So far so good on everything. He's been happy as a clam and back to his stinker self today.

I did forget the darn Diastat on our first outing since the ordeal but thankfully we didn't need it. It will take some getting used to carrying that around.

Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. It really does mean a lot to Joe and I.

Dawn, I'm just seeing the news on Austin now. I'm so sorry you had to go through such a scary ordeal. Seizures are one of my worst fears with Malayna, since she had them at birth. I freak out every time she's sick and has a fever. I'm so glad you're home and he's doing better. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you enjoyed your mother's day.

Jill said...

I'm glad that he is doing well. I couldn't imagine being in that situation. You did an amazing job! Hope you had a Happy Mother's Day.

Dawn said...

Thanks Sheila, I can't imagine how terrifying it would be to have your baby go through that. Too scary.

Thanks Jill! Happy Mother's Day to you too. I still think of my 1st one every year, it's so special.
