Life has taken a turn
He was born on March 10th, 2005 at 1:51am. A beautiful baby boy, Ethan James has brought so much joy to our family and to his very attentive and loving parents. He even has a baby sister on her way in July!
This weekend Brian and I were planning a trip to Louisville with the kids to celebrate Ethan's birthday. We were going to leave tomorrow and return on Sunday. As a family of four, we have never gone away for a weekend, so I think we were all very much looking forward to this adventure and singing Happy Birthday to this Birthday Boy! Especially Anna!
Life has taken a turn that we did not expect. Ethan has been sick this whole week with the stomach flu and today was admitted to the hospital. He will be in the same hospital he was at one year ago on his birthday. poor boy. poor Mom and poor Dad. My heart breaks for them, you know how excited you get for your child's birthday, but I know by this time next week, everything will return to normal as we get ready to celebrate with this healthy one year old!
Tomorrow I am driving to Louisville to try to help out. They are hoping Ethan will be released tomorrow, but nothing has been decided yet. He was very dehydrated, he seems to be on the mend, drinking lots of pedialyte, he's also on IV fluids.
Say a little prayer! I've attached some pictures!
