Good morning

Here is a pitiful picture of Benjamin that I took in the middle of the night last night. It was after my first post at about 2:30 a.m. (my time) but before my second one at about 3:30. He was FINALLY settled down. Poor little pumpkin.

Despite only a little sleep (fragmented at that), it is a better morning already. Benjamin (so far) is decidedly happier. (Right now he's feeling the effects of a suppository he got about an hour and a half ago.)

The blood they got *did* clot, which means they were unable to see if it has infection. But they were able to get a blood culture from it, so they'll check to see if anything grows in that blood. BUT his temperature has stayed in the 98s today. The doctor said if it stays high, we won't need to stick him again.

So now we're just waiting. They're upping his enalapril a little more with each dose.

Matthew is still snoozing. I'll post funny stories later; I need to finish my breakfast.

I think I am officially "stalking" you. I check your blog just about every 5 minutes.
Benjamin has seriously stolen my heart. I am praying as hard as I know how for him.... and you.

Oh Angela, I'm so sorry that you all had such a rough night. I will certainly say some extra prayers for you all today. Hugs!!!

Angela, just wanted to let you know I"m still thinking of you and praying. You blog so fast, I can't comment on all of them, but I'm reading them all! Hugs! This will pass!

You don't know me but I was a huge poster on BZ through the April 2006boards. I have been following your story (wow I sound like a stalker but I promise I'm not!) and following your blog. Benjamin is such a precious sweet boy and is so lucky to have you and Matthew as his parents. Your family have been and will continue to be in my prayers day in and day out. Stay strong Benjamin and come home soon!!!
