In The Hospital

Well, this is kind of a long story, so just hold on. We knew that Caleb was not feeling well. He had been going down hill so to speak starting Sunday evening when he started running fevers well about the 101 mark. We decided to go ahead and take him to the doctor Tuesday to make sure he got all the medication he needed and see the doctor before the holiday. Long story short, he was diagnosed with flu and pneumonia.
Last night, I went ahead and went to my last class of the week. About 30 minutes into it, Jes called me in a panic and said he needed me to come home right away. He said that Caleb was jerking around and was "not breathing right". I listened to him over the phone and he sounded like he was panting and Jes was really freaked out, so I told him to take him to the ER. We spent a hellish 30-45 minutes trying to get an IV in him but he was so dehydrated from a high fever (about 104) that it took forever and 4 punctures. We was admitted and we'll most likely be here tomorrow for Thanksgiving too.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you tomorrow. Have fun with your families. I know I will.
