My Son

Early yesterday morning I got a phone call from my son.

"Mom, I don't feel well. I can't stop throwing up and I have a bad case of diarrhea."

After a visit to the doctor's office, he was admitted to the hospital. They ran massive tests and think he very possibly might have swine flu. My kid is sicker than a dog. He is severely dehydrated and is running a high temp. His hospital room door has a sign on it that says something to the effect that it is advised any visitors wash their hands thoroughly after leaving this room.

Two weeks ago, a kid here, the same age as my son, died from the swine flu so I'm hoping the doctor is just being extremely cautious. It's not a pleasant thing to see your kid suffering and IVs running into his arm.

The tests results have not come back yet. I'll keep y'all up on his condition.
