Ethan is in the hospital...


Sweet Ethan is in the hospital.  He was having trouble breathing and keeping his oxygen levels up so the doctors thought it best if he be admitted.  I can't say that I am totally upset by this.  Seeing your baby turn blue is not normal and not something a Mom should witness so he will be better off tonight with a nurse and his Daddy!  Chris and I stayed with him today and my wonderful parents picked the other kids up for us.  I came home to take care of the other 3 tonight.  It's always such a hard choice, whichever I choose, stay at the hospital or come home.....I miss out.  After I get them off to school in the morning, I will head back but for now here are some pictures from today....

He will get a lot better a lot faster there in the hospital where he can get fluids and all the meds he needs right away.

Let me know if I can do anything to help tomorrow! Dad will be in Emporia for a funeral but I can leave a little early and pick the kids up after work. We don't mind helping out at all.

Love all of you and am praying for you and the Peanut!

So sorry to hear that Ethan is in the hospital. Praying that he recoops quickly and you can be back home as a family again. That is always so tough.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. In the grand scheme of things, it is kinda a small mito world online, and it is always helpful to be in contact with others who are in the same situations. You are right...Ethan's and Nathan's stories are quite similar...even down to the pregnancies with them. You will like Dr. Shoffner...he is amazing!

I can't think of any families off the top of my head in VA with mito, but I do know that there are a couple in the DC area. And one in North Carolina. Contact me if you want more info: amberferrell@gmail.com.

Hope Ethan feels better soon!
