    My son Calvin is being addmitted to the hospital right now. Mom's there with him. Got a call at work at about noon today, it was the day care and the said he was running a fever. I went and picked him up, got him home and he was over 100. The little dude just laid on the couch all day, drinking juice from his sippy cup. I check his temp again at around 6 and it was over 102. I got worried and gave him some more tylenol in his juice. At 8 he was over 103. My wife took him into the emergency room after that. The've been there all nightnow. I just got a call from the wifey, they gave hmi some x-rays and the doc says it's pnemonia. His breathing is bad enough to admit him, and his fever is still over 103. I'm so worried. This is the sickest any of my kids have ever been, and I don't like it.

    She said he's just been sitting in her lap for the last 4 hours. He never sits still, he's always exploring and laughing, and getting into things.

    My poor little dood.

    Your son looks like he could put a smile on anyones' face. I know what you are going through, been there more than once. After you get done beating yourself up, thinking its your fault; accept the fact that kids getting sick is part of growing up. Accepting that fact does not make it any easier, when your child is sick, but it takes some of the stress out of you. BTW, when mine would run a fever, the first thing I would do is put them in a cool bath-they liked it.

    Keep your chin up, brother. Your little guy is in good hands, and I'm willing to bet that a couple of days from now he'll be driving you nuts again with his crazy antics!!! :waytogo:

    Keep us posted, my friend.

    Hey all! I thank everyone so much for their support and thoughts. It really does help. Thank you.

    He's at home now, his breathing normalized and his fever dropped, though he still has it. Hes been sleeping almost a whole day now, and he's still out. I'm taking him in later today for another x-ray and breathing observation. I think for him, just having mom or dad around and having a pacifier is all the support he needs. It's a whole different story for mom and dad though! Luckily my little girl was being very sweet this morning, and it got our moods up.

    Thanks again everyone.

    Al
