Birthdays and Hospital Stays

Isaac had a fabulous birthday. I think this is the first time he had ever spent his birthday at school. Of course they sang his favorite "Happy Birthday" song for him probably 20 times. 

We also had a small family gathering. I still can't believe it's been 8 years. He's so tiny! We went with the Nemo theme this year. 

Within 24 hours of the excitement, Isaac was admitted to the PICU. He caught a very bad virus apparently from school that hit his lungs quickly. By Monday his heart rate was 185 beats per minute and he was needing 3 liters of O2. We spent 8 hours in the ER before we were admitted. I was pretty tired and cranky. Plus the hospital doesn't know him like they used to so sometimes they were not following orders correctly. 

Isaac stayed in the hospital 5 days and made a quick recovery. He is enjoying being back in school again (just as long as sick kids don't spread their germs this time.)
