Wanna Rhett Fix?

Here are some pictures of our journey this week. I am so thankful that it's over. We are still dealing with some nasty pooey diapers, but for the most part he is doing well. He has however developed a congested tight cough. I am hoping he didn't catch anything up there. We were surrounded by kids hacking up a lung, so I am a bit worried. Cross your fingers it's nothing.

This is him when we first took him into the ER. He was not feeling well at all.......



Snoozing away in his favorite position......

Getting a kiss from mommy........sorry no make up and I had been getting puked on for three days so the hair is a bit off too.....sighs........

Getting some much needed sugar back in his system through the IV's...........

Admitted and finally in our own room, snoozing away.............I hate those leads on his chest, and envy anyone who can go into the hospital without wearing them. They are tattle-tales to just how severe his apnea is!!!!

Our door, that tells everyone to stay away, we have cooties and we know how to use them!!!


Lovin with Daddy in the rocking chair that was, and I am not kidding, taped together, no screws, nothing, just masking tape............we got a new one thank goodness........


Trying to decide what looks good on the menu, for when he can actually eat something....(Just between you and me though, I think he liked the dinosaur on it better than the thought of food.)

It didn't last long though, pretty soon he was wiped out from all that reading and needed a nap. This picture was taken not more than 5 minutes after the one above.............

Hanging out in his little nest of blankets that he made in his crib, wearing his cute onesie that our good friend Becky made. Man that girl is talented!!!! Everyone loved this onesie, and thought it was the cutest thing ever, well except for the little guy wearing it!!!

Maybe if I just put my hand over my eyes like this, then everything and everyone will go away.


Gettin some love from my favorite Aunt Kristie....My sister is such a life saver!!

Feeling better and watching a bit of Signing Time!

Hey, I even feel well enough to give you all a big ol' Rhett cheeser!!!

Playing ball in my crib on Thanksgiving, and signing "Monster" to my nurse!!

Playing with Daddy's hat!!!

Yes, we are rednecks!!

Then after I took this picture my camera died, and I didn't get it recharged until today....so no homecoming pictures, but I can tell you that his brother's and sister were so dang excited to see him that they were on the verge of tears. We didn't let them come up this go round, just because he was so sick, and was very contagious. Today has been lots of lovin, and a sit around and do nothing day. It's great!!

I am so glad he is doing better! He looks like he lost a little bit of weight too.

Those pictures brought tears to my eyes. Kids are amazing when they smile even while feeling sick. What an angel. I am so glad he is on the up and up.
