Back in the PICU

8 days.
8 glorious days.
That's how many days we were home.
He was never 100%.
Yesterday I knew in my heart
that he was sick...AGAIN!
This morning he had 104 fever.
Lots of secretions.
Even more coughing.
And even MORE oxygen.
Off to the ER we went.
Dartmouth sent the limo,
Ben's their VIP.
And here we are.
He's back on the vent.
His fevers are still spiking.
He is just plain miserable.
(until he got some morphine)
Now he's finally resting.
I'm off to bed...I'll write more tomorrow.

Oh sweet Becky and Ben. Obviously Ben didn't get the memo that there was NO more sickness after General Conference --- So the new goal...MAY 1st! You can do it! (make sure Ben gets that memo)
Hope you got some rest! Kiss that sweet boy for me!

Even as sick as this poor boy is, I am struck by his beauty as I look at this photo...
