Taking off the kid gloves

Jack is now being admitted to Texas Children's Hospital for observation and more tests. They anticipate his stay will be 48 hours or less, which would be nice.

This is one advantage to living in Houston; I'm fairly confident that he is in one of the absolute best places in world when it comes to pediatric care. They will look at every possibility (Kawasaki syndrome, cat scratch fever, rare disorders, simple virus, etc...) until we have the answer.

Jamie will probably stay with Jack at the hospital tonight, and I'll probably stay home with Samantha. If it works out that way, I'll try to post an update tonight after Samantha goes to bed.

Here's part of the lyrics to my favorite song right now -- you can bet I'll be singing it in the car a lot today:

"Praise You in This Storm" by Casting Crowns

I was sure by now, God You would have reached down
and wiped our tears away,
stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say amen... and it's still raining.
As the thunder rolls I barely hear
You whisper through the rain, "I'm with you".
And as Your mercy falls I raise my hands
and praise the God who gives and takes away.

Chorus: And I'll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands.
For You are who You are,
no matter where I am.
And every tear I've cried,
You hold in your hand.
You never left my side.
And though my heart is torn,
I will praise You in this storm.

Praying the doctors can come up with the answer. It's been a long road. You'll all be in my thoughts and prayers.
