Not mine, actually. It was a relative of my acquaintance.

Still, thanks.

My son woke up sick today. Rapid breathing, high fever, and a deep cough. An early trip to the ER led to a diagnosis of pneumonia and at least one, but probably a two to three day stay in the hospital. Jay is 30 and has Down Syndrome. He's feeling better, but really wants me to stay here with him overnight.

I'm thankful he's on the mend.
I'm thankful the hospital is brand new, state of the art and he has a private room with a river view.
AND I'm thankful that I have a fully charged iPad with my Kindle app and all the time in the world to read. :)

Hope he makes a swift recovery Tish. Sending positive vibes.

Hope he feels better real soon! I think it's universal to want your "mommy" when you don't feel well. I'm almost 30 and I still want my mom when I'm down and out (although my husband tries his best).

I hope he heals quickly, Ticia.

I second that, Brenna. I'm 30 myself and sometimes I still want my mommy.

Hope all is well soon Ticia.

As for me. I can't get out of this funk I've been in. I just keep thinking that I'm never going to find anyone again. :( It sucks. I'm getting up their in years. Bars are for kids. I'm not sure what to do.

Thank you all for your kind words. Jay had a rough night, but after he was transferred to the ICU this morning, things got much better. He's breathing comfortably and is now enjoying a "percussion and vibration" treatment on his super-fancy hospital bed. It's meant to loosen up some of the congestion in his lungs but it brings to mind those pay-for-massage beds in cheesy hotels! I'm staying here again tonight but I dashed home while he was napping and snagged my own comfy pillow. More reading tonight.
