Poor baby Cooper...

Last Tuesday I woke up at 4am to find Cooper burning up. I took his temperature and it read 101. So I called the Dr and they told me to take him to the ER. Turns out they wanted to hospitalize him for 48 hours because they thought he might have Meningitis. Cooper only had a fever, and no reason for it--no ear infection, no cold, no flu, etc. So they were worried about him. He had to have blood tests, urine tests, and two Spinal taps. Poor guy. It just about killed me. The thing he hated the most was his little IV--it kept getting folded back on its self and the nurses would have to mess with it to get it going again and he did NOT like it!

We are home now--glad to be away from the hospital. I think Cooper is glad to see his brothers again--even if they are tackling him all the time! :)






Glad to be back home! Give your little ones a kiss!
hugs,
Kandis

Oh, that breaks my heart. I hope he's ok. Did they find out what was wrong? It's so hard seeing your little ones go through times like that. I had to tell you how cute he is though. Just a handsome little man lying there! You can tell already he's going to be dashing like his brothers!!

Hi Kandis, How horrible for you!!!! I know exactly what you have gone through. My little guy ended up getting meningitis and it is a horrible thing to go through. The poor little guys with their iv's in them. Just not fun. I'm so glad to hear that you are home safe and sound.
