My 4yo, Tarok, was admitted to PICU today. He's on a ventilator because the swelling and ooze from his tonsilitis obstructed his airway. This isn't the first time he's been there (usually with pneumonia) and it probably won't be the last. The worst par tof the whole thing is that Ethan (my2yo) is no longer content to snooze or watch tv from a stroller while we visit with his brother. I'm having a really hard time dealing with Ethan and being there for Tarok and being with it enough to talk to the doctors all at the same time. Every time I tried to go eat something today, Tarok ended up in trouble and I had to forgo the meal to be there for him. I'm pulling an all nighter tonight so I can get things together that we needat the hospital and get back on time to releive Grandma, so she can get Ethan from grandpa, so he can go to work! Then Ethan comes back to the hospital where I take care of him on lack of sleep, so that my Mom can go get some herself. Ack! And the kids' Dad is out of town 'till Wed. This is going to be a tough one. Please send me healthy, energetic thoughts!
