First B-Day + Hospital Stay + Thanksgiving Weekend

Mr. Boy had a cold for 3 weeks and the day before his Birthday, it turned into something nasty. On his Birthday I took him to see his Pediatrician for the cough because Mr. Boy did nothing but cough, writhe, and cry for 2 days. The Pediatrician thought it was a type of pneumonia and sent us home with some meds and a nebulizer machine (a breathing mask that emits a helpful mist) and said if Mr. Boy was in the same condition that evening, to take him to the ER. He didn't improve at all, so we took him to the ER and they admitted him to the children's hospital for "respiratory distress." They think he had a form of Bronchitis that got out of hand and assumed we would be in the hospital for the rest of the week, but thanks to all your prayers, he recovered very quickly and was discharged Wednesday night, just in time to spend Thanksgiving at home. We intended to fly to Denver to spend thanksgiving with David's family, but had to cancel the trip due to Mr. Boy's  illness. It's super sad that we had to miss the trip, but we are so thankful Mr. Boy is better!
PS: If you have a small baby, buy flight insurance! It's good stuff. :)
