This just in - Things suck!

This hospital stay is getting frustrating. When I asked the doctor this morning if we were looking at "a couple" more days she said "A few actually". Yippee.

To add to the mess is that there is some sort of bacteria in the blood that was drawn from Joseph in the ER. Right now it's unclear if the bacteria was on his skin and contaminated the blood or if the bacteria was in his blood to begin with. They had to draw more blood this morning and that will have to be cultured for 24 hours before we really know what's going on there.

Joseph is getting homesick and squirrely. As am I. I feel like I haven't seen Elle or Jesse in so long. My house remains largely unpacked. We're totally unready for both the vacation and the move. Everything just sucks right now and I don't feel like being cheerful about it.

Sending good thoughts your way! It's hard to have a kid in the hospital and the rest at home. Use and abuse people at this time. People want to help, you just have to tell them what you need. It's difficult to do sometimes, but you need the help and people love to help.

Many positive thoughts coming your way to counteract the suckiness (is that a word?). I know you can handle this, just take a deep breath.

Has Disc 3 of The Wire come yet at least? :(

***Big Hug*** Hospitals are very icky. I am sorry that you're both stuck there at the moment. If I were around, even though you don't know me, I'd volunteer to pack your stuff at least, lol. (Yes, let the crazy lady pack your stuff, Mwahahaha... I may throw in some of my kids 800 zillion stuffed animals). We are moving next May and I am already packing... Some days I hate OCD...

Poor peanut! I hope he's better very soon and that this all does turn out to be just an incedent. My thought are with you and your family
