Expect the unexpected

I started a post earlier today that I had to pause, and now it seems I have a different one to write anyway.

Adam has had to go into the hospital tonight for what sounds like a chest infection, though we will only know that for sure once the test results come back. In true Adam style he's had a cough for weeks and was probably having fevers all Christmas weekend, but we didn't know it because he wasn't warm and was still acting normal. By normal I mean eating everything in sight, plenty of energy and the cheeky Adam mood to go with it. I only checked his temp tonight just to see what it was, and when it was well over the limit we had to take him in (the limit is 38 and it was 39.4--normal is 37!)

He is wheezing and breathing harder than normal, but otherwise still in good form. When I left Dad was feeding him a second dinner and they were watching Mr Tumble, so by Adam accounts it is the perfect evening! I only hope for their (Dad's!) sake they can sleep some too.

Otherwise we've had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed some quiet time with family and our friend Miss Leah, and also some time with friends. The weather has been great so the kids got to go out and play in the backyard lots too. Adam is meant to start his next block of chemo on Thursday, and that means going in every day for treatments for a week, so the timing of being in is not as bad as it might have been--we have every reason to be grateful and will keep a positive outlook. Thanks, as ever, for your prayers and support...I will be sure to keep you posted.
