Gobble, Gobble, Hospital

​I’ve learned a lot of things since Jax was born. Namely, I’ve learned that nothing ever really goes as planned. We had plans this week – plans that we were all looking forward to. Sometimes I wonder why I plan ahead at all!

Instead of spending a fun holiday with our family, we’ll be spending the next few nights in the hospital. 

Jax has pneumonia again and is needing oxygen support and IV fluids and meds. The crazy thing is that he was completely fine yesterday – playing, running, eating. But last night around midnight, he spiked a fever and started having trouble breathing. By morning, we were on max meds for home. This is his M.O. – fast and furious is how we roll. 

I’m hopeful that we caught the pneumonia early enough so that this is a short stay. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, but we missed it last year because of pneumonia and a hospital stay, so I’m preparing myself for that possibility again. 

Honestly, we could use a break.

Oh man, what an adventure! I went into labor unexpectedly when I was 23w3d pregnant. Jaxson was born weighing 1 lb 8 oz. A tiny little peanut, but boy was he feisty. He still is! We love it now, but we probably won't when he is a teenager. I write about our journey and all other things that come with it, including a brain tumor. We look forward to "meeting" you - come hang out with us...we're pretty cool.
