A trip to the nature preserve

Prior to getting sick Elijah and I went to the Graham Creek Nature Preserve. We hiked around and saw carnivorous plants :) and lily pads and such. Here are a few pics. As you can see Toady went with us!


Last Tuesday Elijah woke up coughing a bunch. I told him to go back to sleep and I'd wake him up in an hour or two and maybe he'd be better and get to go to school. Well he just went downhill. He ate some breakfast and then started throwing up every time he ate or drank something. It was horrible. By the evening time I decided to take him to the ER. He had been wheezing horribly all day. He had not kept anything down for long. I knew he probably would need an IV of fluids and that made me sad! We got there and honestly it was horrible. Poor poor kiddo! He had an IV of fluids, IV antibiotics, a breathing treatment, oral steroid, a steroid shot, and two X-rays. Poor poor little E! Today was his first day back to school so yay he is feeling much better. They said he had a little touch of pneumonia in one of his lungs. So glad it was just "a little" pneumonia!!
