Jamie and Christian came up for a while and spent some time playing with Josh. Jamie is doing great and looks wonderful. Her belly just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
After they left Joshua and I found different ways to fight the boredom of being stuck in the hospital. What follows is a small sample of our activities:
1. Play lots of board games. (Actually it is get your butt kicked over and over by a seven year old no matter what game you play.)
2. Take a walk around the hospital floor.
3. Play a pick up soccer game in the hallway dodging parents and nurses to score. After a while get the nurses to join in.
4. Chase nurses with syringes of saline and have water fights before shift change. Just to be clear, Joshua was the one "chasing" the nurses. I was just an observer.
Joshua as you can tell is feeling much better. He was unhooked from his IV today until 9 p.m. when he got another dose of antibiotic. His temperature was staying around 100.2 which is low enough to get him sprung tomorrow. He just can't top 100.5 tonight. So with any luck he will get released after morning rounds and finally get to come home to rest. Renee was still feeling pretty out of sorts and Jarrod seemed to be holding his own tonight. Let's hope that by morning they both feel much better.
