And now we're admitted.....


Logan has just been admitted to the Children's Hospital from the Emergency Room tonight about 9 pm. A second reading of a CT scan done on him earlier in the afternoon shows a forming abscess in the sinus under/beside his bad eye - the left one. This can do nothing but make the situation/periorbital cellulitis worse, so the doctor wants to admit him for IV antibiotics and observation. We don't know how long he'll be in the hospital yet - probably at least a couple days.

Marc is with him tonight - he chose Dad to stay overnight instead of Mom - go figure! He's in room 358 of the Children's Hospital in Edinburg, TX. Beth and Steve have had our other boys all day long (and taking turns overnight) - thank you SO much!

Thank you again for your prayers and love. This has been a pretty overwhelming day, but we do know God is in control...He knows what He's doing - we just need His strength and peace during this time.

Love,
Melodie

Hey Logan -
The kids in Kid's Church are praying for you to get better soon! They feel really sad that you are hurting. And you know what? Jesus feels sad too, and He cares so much that he will be right beside you every minute of every day and every minute of every night!
Be brave - and try to remember at least one interesting thing that you can write to all of us about when you get home!
Love you! Hugs and prayers,
Mrs. Rebecca

Hi, Logan. I am sorry you have to be in the hospital. I know how bad it hurts because I remember how it felt to get "shots" ( an IV) when I was in the hospital when I get hit by the mower. All of that hurt really bad. Especially when they would move my leg. But...I am okay now. It itches a lot now, but I am okay.

I love you and can't wait to come to Mexico to play with you again. Me and Mommy and Daddy have been praying for you. I hope your eye feels better soon. Mommy showed me the pictures.

Talk to you later. I love you...Braxton

Hi, Logan. I am very sorry that you are struggling with this eye thing. It looks like it would just be miserable. I wish there was something I could do to help you. I have been praying for you a lot and for your Mom and Dad.

Hang in there. Make the nurses get lots of toys for you to play with and DVD's for you to watch. When Braxton was in the hospital the nurses and aids were always trying to bring him stuff to play with because when he didn't do anything active his breathing would get really slow. He got used to them getting him whatever he wanted. The only thing that sounded good to him to eat in the hospital was "froot" loops. The nurses were always bringing it to him with some milk to try to get him to eat. My point is...tell them what you want to play/watch and they will get it for you.

I love you and am very sorry that you have to do the hospital thing. Hopefully, you won't have to stay very long. I will keep praying for you. You are a brave boy and I am proud of you. Tell your brothers that I said hi.

Love you...Aunt Missy
