I spoke too soon...

Since my last post, I have undergone the stresses of being a mother :O) I was certainly paranoid about Camden's condition every second of the day, but have now found out it was rightly so. My last few nights have been spent in the hospital. He was just not the same Camden and was EXTREMELY lethargic, fussy, and in pain. When I took him to the Dr.--after practically BEGGING the nurse to let us in during after hours on Monday--he decided to hospitalize him right away and get him on an IV while they ran tests to figure out what is wrong. Minus the details, the IV helped him A TON within about thirty minutes of getting it going. Since then, he has improved even more drastically. Although we are still unsure as to what his condition is, he is doing MUCH better than he was before. Poor little guy has IV's in him, but here is the proof that he has perked up a bit since we've been here.

Yes, fussy again, but he is showing INTEREST in something again!

In the middle of a spit up
"Oh my, what are all of those machines?!"

And here is some MOVEMENT! What a big deal!

Those were all after he received the fluids via IV. He started to even want food again. Today, I even got a smile :O)

But he was still kinda miserable because of throwing up...

What we DO know:

-His white blood counts are off-indicating a viral infection
-The x-rays of his lungs indicate a mild respiratory infection
-He has pretty bad acid reflux and is now on medication for the next several months. We hope it helps and improves his situation
-He is no longer dehydrated. He even produces tears like he is supposed to! Oh the simple joys!
-He has been tested for H1N1. Doc thinks that he has it because Devin had it last week, but we are still waiting for the results.
-He started an antibiotic today and finally pooped tonight! (Who would have thought a mom would be HAPPY about that?! :O)
-We LOVE Camden SO much and are glad that he is doing so much better. Hopefully it will continue this way! We are blessed and thank you for your thoughts, prayers, love and support!

Please know we love and care for you!

When my mom called and told me about Camden I seriously wanted to die. I could hardly believe it. How could ANOTHER crazy thing be happening already???

We hope you guys are working your way to health and know that we are praying for you. We love you guys.

We're praying for you and your sweet little family. Having a sick baby is just about as bad as it gets. We hope Camden pulls through soon. Stay strong, mama!

I have tears just reading these last 2 posts. I'm SO sorry for everything you've been through. I'm glad you called the other day and hopefully something I said helped you out :)...even if it was: DON'T WORRY ABOUT PEOPLE THINKING YOU'RE PARANOID, YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BE!! :)

We love you and trust me when I say that we've been thinking a TON about you guys. Tom asks me often if I've heard anything about you guys or Bryce.

Camden is SO cute!! I love all the pictures! I remember when Halle was in the hospital at 1 years and it was so sad to see them like that. Glad it was helping :)
