Hospital Stay and other pixs

Well, we have been up to a lot of things lately, good and bad. Cannon had his 6 month check up, and the doctor informs me that he is concerned with his head. On each side of his head it goes out to a point. That is an indication of extra fluid on the brain. We had to make a decision to have a MRI or a CT. MRI only shows the fluid and the CT shows the fluid and bone structure, but the CT exposes him to some radiation which could cause cancer later on in his life. My sister and brother in law talked to some family friends that are doctors for their opinion. They told us that the CT scan these days are a lot better than they used to be. We have decided to go with the CT on March 2nd. Later that evening my mom, the boys and I, were going to look for a Valentine gift for Bryan at the Meadows Mall. We decided to go eat at Macayo's before we went to the mall. We were pulling out of the the shopping center to make a left hand turn, and a lady ran the red light and hit my moms car. Everyone is fine... just soreness and a couple of bruises. On the 16th of Feb. we had to go to the Summerlin Hospital Pediatric ER because Cannon wasn't eating or drinking which resulted into dry diapers. We had gone to the doctors on the 15th and he prescribed and antibiotic and breathing treatments because his cough sounded like a bark... it was so bad you could hear him breathing without putting your ear to his chest. Well on the 16th the doctor said go to the ER for dehydration. After 4-5 hours in the ER and an IV he was admitted to the hospital for RSV, Bronchiolitis, Hypoxia and his oxygen level kept going below 92%. Each day a doctor from our pediatrician office would come in at 9 am and check him out to see if he could go home. Day after day the answer was "you have to stay here another day". Finally after 5 days on Sunday the 21st he was breathing on his own for a whole 24 hours, and they couldn't hear any whizzing in his chest so we were able to come home. On Monday Cannon started to throw up and the doctor informed us that he probably caught a stomach bug from the hospital.

Some fun things... we went to Tule Springs with Bryans parents and had a picnic. The weather was so beautiful! Grandma rubbing Dax's belly with lotion... it is one of their favorite things to do.
Dax also loves it when people read to him especially Grandma.
Getting ready to feed the ducks.

In January we decided to go up to Mt. Charleston to play in the snow.

Dax kept saying "Snow Ball Fight" which he got from "Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs".
I made this Raseberry Chocolate Torte for an FHE
Dax loves hanging out with Papa Great and watching Toy Story.
He must have an obsession with lotion... this time with expense lotion.
My cowboy! Yes that is underwear on his head. Bryan and Parley told him to come down stairs and tell Katie and I "Hello there perrdy (pretty) lady"
Dax and Cannon got matching Buzz and Woody PJ's from Grammie and Papa

I am so sorry. RSV is no fun. I hope he is feeling better. Keep us informed on Dax. Hope all is well!

Emily said...

That is so scary! I can't imagine what they was like to see your baby there! I have been worried about Luka lately with his cough, scary stuff! He'll be in our prayers!

Mandi Roth said...

I'm so sorry, what a long month it's been. My prayers are with you. Please let me know if there is anything you need. I would love to talk with you sometime.

Katie said...

That first "Cannon behind bars" shot just rips your heart out! I'm so glad he's doing better!

Oh, my heck, Kim--I am so sorry your sweet family is going through such a rough patch. Do you know more about the CT and is Cannon recovered from the gastritis and RSV? They are so good looking and manly little guys. I haven't been blog-walking much lately--I will have to check more often. We are fat and sassy and thankful for all God's blessings to us. May His blessings continue with you.

Parley and Katie Call said...

YOu have had enough drama for a loong time! I miss my babies and I hope they are feeling better.

That pic of Dax with the underwear is my all time fave. I still laugh out loud. And Cannon up at the snow, it melts my heart!
