BACK IN THE SADDLE...er PICU

I kind of had a gut feeling we were headed back.  His poor little lung.  It's completely collapsed again.  Somewhat discouraging.  I was really thinking that he'd be home for his birthday after the last stay.  I figured that would be it for awhile.  This poor child isn't even through with his antibiotic regimen from the last PICU stay and we're already back.  (sigh)  
The first picture is shortly after arriving in the ER.

We need to not be talking any birthday smack next year! What a lousy tradition. Hoping to a short stay! Beat that kid. His back, I mean ;-)

He looks SO BIG in that hospital bed. Poor little Ben :( sick for his birthday. Hope this stay is short and he can go home for cake soon.

Oh Ben ... I woke up this morning wondering how you were doing, and came to my computer to check on you. This is not the news I was hoping for. :(

I hope you feel better soon and get OUT of the saddle ... er, PICU.

Oh Benji, so sorry that you are back in the hospital again. Haven't you had enough birthdays at Dartmouth? Isn't it about time to start having them at home? Just have to have a belated one for you. Wishing you a speedy recovery, birthday boy. Lots of love from Aunt Shirley and Uncle David.

Not much of a birthday celebration hu? Zach's poem made me cry thinking of you and Ben. What a sweet little lamb.
