We are all sick here. Well Dan is only semi-sick. Elijah and I are nice and sick and feeling yucky. DayQuil has been saving me during the day. I'm SUPER busy at work right now. I'm basically trying to do four weeks worth of work in like seven days since I'm going to be gone for the last half of the month for Elijah's surgery. Fun! So that hasn't been helping my health, mentally or physically. And our Elijah is a sick sick boy. :( It makes me teary even thinking about it. He has a cold or the flu, we're not sure which. He keeps throwing up, but we're not sure if that is from the extra saliva (his tummy has always been sensitive to that) or if it's something more. He had his highest temp yet tonight, which I don't like at all.
His health is definitely declining. And I don't think the cold/flu is responsible for all of it. His heart is failing. At one point today, he was sitting next to me and he just put his hands down on my lap and collapsed on me. He has never done that before. He is conserving his energy as much as possible right now. When I lay him on his back on the floor, he won't even attempt to roll over. It is just too much for him. His heart is working really hard and he's exhausted.
As the mama, I just know that things are off. I worry that surgery is scheduled too far out, but he is sick, so at the same time it's not far out enough. I'm worried and scared and wondering how he is going to fare for the next 12 days before surgery.
I feel LOST without Dr. Gremmels in town. If it had been him who called me yesterday instead of Dr. Wright, I think I'd feel a thousand times better right now. Dr. G is just the best doctor on the planet and we don't like the feeling of not having him right here for us during our very stressful time.
Ok, we're going to sleep! Thanks for checking in on us. xoxoxoxo
