Hosptial Stay & Mother's Day

In the middle of May Adilene woke up with a fever and so instead of heading to take the kids to school we went to the hospital instead.  I was hopeful that Adilene's counts would be high enough that we wouldn't have to be admitted but they weren't. 

We spent the next 5 days in the hospital.  The good thing was that she felt great and other then the fever she had no other symptoms.  Blaiden was with us the first day and then Fred came and got him that night.  The next morning He came and dropped him off again to spend the day with us.  Then on Saturday Fred and Blaiden stayed home together.  We were hopeful that Adilene would get to come home but her counts still hadn't came up yet. 

Sunday was Mother's Day and again we were hoping that Adilene's counts were up but it didn't work out that way.  So Fred and Blaiden came up that afternoon and spoiled me.  They brought Chipolte for dinner and Blaiden gave me a sweet card, a candle, and an ice cream cake for dessert.  Blaiden is always so sweet and thoughtful when it comes to celebrating others.  He always wants to make the day so special, I love his sweet little heart.

Blaiden was going to spend the night with Adilene and I in the hospital that night because Fred had to go to work early on Monday.  Again we thought we would be able to come home so he wouldn't have to be in the hospital for very long.  Finally on Monday morning we got the good news that Adilene's counts were finally starting to come up and we could go home.  We had to wait until she received a final dose of antibiotics and then we came home around 4 in the afternoon. 

This stay was a little more difficult because Adilene is not as comfortable in the hospital anymore because she is not inpatient as much.  This means that she doesn't sleep very well at night and so by morning she would be in bed with me on the little couch in the room.  It makes it very difficult because the couch is small and I have to be careful that her line doesn't get tangled.  I was also 3 weeks away from my due date so it made the couch that much smaller.  On Sunday night Fred was making a joke that he was giving me 3 kids in a hospital room for Mother's Day.  I am sure it was a crazy sight seeing all 3 1/2 of us sleeping on that little couch.
