Thanks to everyone who has prayed for Isaiah! He is doing much better.
In case you don't know, on Thursday night he started having some real problems breathing. He had a fever of 101 at about 5 pm. We put him to bed at 8:15 and he was fine. Around 10 pm, Tim brought him out to me and he couldn't get his breath. It was pretty scary. It was like he could breathe in, but not out. I took him to the hospital while Tim stayed with the boys who were in bed. My mom met me at the hospital. They gave him a breathing treatment and then 2 different steroids. They also gave him Motrin. They diagnosed him with croup. The Dr. ended up admitting him because he still didn't sound that much better when they were done. I think we got to his room about 2 am or so. To make a long story short, we got maybe 2 hours of sleep or so. The Dr. came in at 8:30 am and said that he was getting better, but they wanted to watch him a little longer and that she would call on her lunch break. If he was OK, they would discharge him. She said she saw no problem with taking him to the zoo or camping this weekend (which is what we had planned to do). We left the hospital around 1 pm and went camping around 4:30 pm. We got back this afternoon.
He has been a little grumpier than usual (we all have due to lack of sleep). The nurse said that the steroid they put him on will also make him grumpy. We did have a fairly good weekend though.
Just thought I would post an update instead of trying to call or email you all individually. Thanks again for the prayers!
