AlwaysAMama: Still at the hospital


I saw your message when i got in to work today. i didn't even know you had your baby and have no fucking idea what to say because i know how scared i would be if i were in your position.

Your husbands not well and your baby's in the hospital.

I wracked my brains trying to figure out what i could say that might give you some consolation, but instead i replied to a few silly messages and surfed the net for information on that type of pneumonia. i do that when i don't know what to do.

There are so many problems or rather complications that can cause pneumonia that a perfectly accurate diagnosis could be difficult. not to mention the fact that he's about 4 weeks old and can't have been given his vaccinations yet...

Listen, write down everything the dr's say. keep a notebook or something around so you always know what's going on and (i know i don't have to tell you) don't take your eyes off your baby.

And if they decide to let you out of the hospital and you're not comfortable or satisfied that he's well enough don't let them. OH, don't forget to eat and stay hydrated yourself. i know it seems stupid, but you have to stay focused and strong. both you and your husband.

Be well my dear and i'll keep you and your family in my thoughts until you're all better.
