Unsurprisingly, we made our way back to GHS on Saturday afternoon and we find our selves admitted once again. These respiratory issues are kicking my fanny. We are on the floor so I am having to stay all the time. I don't mind (I actually like the quiet), but I am desperately in need of sleep. I think the last time I slept all night was during my trip to Memphis in April.
Brinkley has had quite the work up today. He's had blood work to test for allergies, immune system issues, and some viral and infection screenings. We just returned from a chest x ray and are waiting to hear back from Sleep Medicine about home care for his newly diagnosed sleep apnea. Needless to say, he is worn out! We will continue to hang out here as his oxygen requirement is rather high right now.
As for Reese, we are working to regulate his new medication that is to treat his anxiety and behavior issues. So far the medicine is helping to keep him calmer, but it is making him extremely emotional. I am not sure what is worse bouncing off the walls or the constant crying. We'll keep working until we figure it out though.
I keep looking for my opportunities to love on people here while we wait. Today I have a box of cupcakes to share with the nurses. I hope they enjoy!
Please continue to pray for our boys. My biggest prayer right now is that we can get Brinkley healthy and out of here in a couple of days. Reese's birthday party is this weekend and I have so much to do to prepare. Please pray for me as I try to figure out how to balance it all.
