Archie's Hospital Stay

It's been a while since I've blogged and I've got some big news to share later but first I'll tell about our weekend. Archie caught RSV, had two ear infections, and was teething. None of those things would have been that big of a deal if he hadn't stopped eating and drinking. He stayed in the hospital for two nights and two days. He hated the IV's, 3 am blood tests, and around the clock booger sucking. Almost every time a nurse came in he cried. I hated seeing him him sick and it was so scary that our little piglet didn't eat any dinner 3 nights in a row and hardly drank anything for days.

I took him to the doctor on Wednesday and again Thursday. He lost a pound and a half in just a day and was dehydrated enough that they admitted him Thursday. They initially said it was just going to be over night but he still wasn't drinking enough so we stayed two nights.

These pictures were all taken on our last afternoon there so he was smiling more and feeling a bit better by then.

His crib was like a little cage.

Archie getting some much needed sleep. He slept a lot when he was sick. I kind of miss all of his cuddling but it is so nice to see him running around and happy again!
