Hanging with Howards and Another Story
On Sunday right during Hayden's farewell Ike and I ended up at Primary Children's Hospital. He had been projectile vomiting repeatedly and had gotten extremely dehydrated. They wanted to test him for a couple of other things but ended up diagnosing him with Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome. Apparently a baby can kind of get into a pattern of vomiting and will not be able to consume fluids on its own. After a bunch of tests and an IV to stop the dehydration he looked much better. After all the tests came back negative and I was ready to laugh again Jill sent me a text: You should have the hospital priest check him for a demon.
I was only there for a couple of hours and our problem was easily solved but it was clear in just that short of a time that Primary Children's is a very special place.
I was too worried to take many photos but I did snap this one. The nurse had put heating packs on him to help prepare him for the IV. She called them his boxing gloves.
I feel incredibly attached to this baby boy and know that it is a great blessing that he is healthy.
