Viral meningitis

Well, poor Graham has been in the hospital since early Tuesday morning due to a fever. We woke up that morning and he was running a fever so we went to the ER where he was admitted.

We've had two lumbar punctures, bloodwork, IV fluids, a chest x ray, IV antibiotics, etc. Today he was diagnosed with viral meningitis. Paisley and I were sick the day before he was born which is likely where he got it. Unfortunately, his turned into meningitis.

This will pass like any virus and he'll be fine. We just pray to go home soon because I miss Paisley!!!! My emotions have been out of control with this.

Having major surgery, meeting your newborn, leaving your older child, etc takes a major toll quickly! I had a complete breakdown today when I learned that we could be here at least 48 more hours if not more! We are just so glad he'll be okay. What a terrifying experience.


  1. Oh my goodness! Poor little Graham and poor YOU:( I hope he gets better quickly! xoxox

  2. That is so scary! I am so glad he's going to be okay. Hang in there, mama! *hugs*

  3. Wow, so scary I hope he gets better soon!

    And he is adorable!

  4. I am sure it was SO overwhelming. I remember when i came home with Addy and saw Jackson, I just broke down crying. The emotion of leaving him, having her, etc just took over me. I can't imagine then having to leave again to take her to the ER and to be admitted! I hope he is better now! Take care, hun! He is SO FREAKIN' ADORABLE:)!

  5. I'm so glad he's going to be OK!! Hang in there momma, you'll get through it one minute at a time, and it'll be so much better once you guys are all back together :)
