Adding pictures.

Here is Declan loaded into the ambulance, en route to Mercy San Juan. Just like last time, all I keep thinking to myself is that this does not look like a kid that needs to be going to the hospital in an ambulance. I drove in my car so that I had transportation after he was admitted. I ended up following the ambulance the entire way there. Declan saw me and we waved to each other at every red light.

I didn't take any pictures of him all hooked up to the half dozen things hanging off him. I guess I was in worried Mom mode and the thought to take pictures escaped me. After he was off oxygen I remembered. Maybe it's my own way of blocking anything less than perfect out. Who knows. At least this time I did get the ambulance ride. Last time I was in the ambulance with him.

I brought his little tub of Legos to the hospital and picked up a new set for him on the way one night. He had a great time talking to all the nurses and respiratory therapists. He rang the nurses button several times without me knowing, and when they came in he asked for Popsicles. Little turkey!

Even though he wouldn't admit it, I think he missed the girls like crazy. Here he is talking to Teagan on the phone. They talked for about 5 minutes! It was pretty cute.

I brought my Cricut in and we made Valentines to decorate the house with. He loved that. I was trying to think of things for him to do while sitting in a hospital bed.

Oh, Teresa. I hope that you can get a handle on this. It wears on the mommy nerves when we have to see our little ones sick at any level. Big hugs to you and lots of good thoughts to Declan!
