We've been admitted* Edited

First, thank you all so much for your prayers and good, healing thoughts. Little Micah really needs them right now. He has been admitted to the hospital and has to stay until he can keep fluids down without being on an IV. So far, no luck at all and he's still on the IV. He is miserable, but now that we're in a room, he's a little more comfortable. I'll update tomorrow on what's happening...

(By the way - new parents - always trust your gut instinct. The doc we saw this morning (not our regular doctor) told us to just keep trying to feed him and he'd be fine. So, we tried on the way home and nothing was staying down for longer than 10 seconds. We turned the car around and went to the hospital. All the docs there said we made the right decision. I'm so glad we trusted our instincts. We're learning!)


*Just an update - it's Saturday afternoon and we're still at the hospital. The doctors think we'll be able to come home tomorrow, but for now we're just trying to get him to take little sips of pedialyte and keep those down. Thanks again for all the prayers and good thoughts - it really means a lot to us! Hopefully we'll be home tomorrow and Micah can be back to himself very soon! Right now he's just a little limp bean. :(

  14. Oh Micah and parents. I hope you get to come home today. I know first hand how scary it is to have a sick baby in the hospital. Stay strong--he'll be okay. He knows how much his mommy and daddy love him.

    Looking forward to hearing you are at home. You all are in my thoughts.

  15. Stacie---We are definitely thinking of you all! I have yet to have one of mine in the hospital and cannot even imagine. I do not how helpless it feels to watch them suffer when they feel so terrible! I hope he gets to come home today, but more importantly I hope he starts feeling much much better!!!
