Things Didn't Quite Work Out

I am back home.

My one-year-old nephew, Jack, has pneumonia. We took off this morning worried because he was going for a chest x-ray. We made frequent phone calls checking on him and it seemed like he was going to be okay. However, at about 3:00, just about the time we made it to my friend's house just north of Houston, we got the call. The little guy had to be admitted. We turned around. I took Mamala to the hospital and stayed for a short visit. Mamala is spending the night with sister and Jack. He should be okay, but it is no fun to have such a little guy all hooked up to an iv and pulse ox machine. Sister says he is doing much better than he was earlier today.

So no quilt show this year. Maybe next.

  6. I don't pray very often, but I am surely praying for that little man, and sending healing thoughts across the sea for him. Love to you and your family.

  8. Oh Debbi, that so saddens me! Both the little guy and you missing out. I was so looking forward for you to go to this. As I know how exciting it is to attend. Well, treat yourself to something you normally wouldn't to make up for it at least.

  9. Oh, poor little fellow. Pnemonia is NO fun at all. Glad to hear he's starting to do better. Sorry about your trip, but I'm sure you'll find something else fun to do instead.

    LOL, I like your comment to your sister.

  10. Such is life; you got your priorities straight. Quilts come and go; family is forever. Brenda is right, just enjoy some other treat (dinner out or a pedicure, or...a new plant). Will keep ya'll in my prayers!

  12. Hi All, normally i respond to everyone individually. I am a little overwhelmed right now and want to thank everyone for their thoughtfulness and well wishes. Jack is home and doing better. We left my sister with instructions to rest.

  13. That was surely very exhausting and I'm glad you can all rest a little easier. Poor little guy. I'm so sorry.
