Time to put the smack down

So Jack's fever ain't going away. Now it's time to start checking his internal systems and potential issues, starting with a chest X-ray. This should give us a look at the lungs, heart and some lymph nodes.

The chest X-ray is also non-invasive and fairly untraumatic, at least as much as possible for a 13-month old. From there it will get a little more difficult if we don't get an answer.

Last night at 10pm Samantha came downstairs, claiming that she had to go peepee and "couldn't reach the light in the bathroom". Uh... she has a nightlight in her bathroom. Jamie later translated for me and explained that Samantha couldn't reach the light in the downstairs bathroom, near the den where we were sitting. So why did Samantha need to come downstairs in the first place? I'm sure we'll never know.

She had to come down to be with Mommy and Daddy, of course.

...continuing to pray for Jack...and you and Jamie and Samantha.

When is the little guy going in for the x-rays? Thanks for the daily updates, too. Kinda feels like we're just next door.

As for Samantha's "nightmares", hopefully I'm hoping its just a stage. My daughter (3.5 yrs old)is going thru the same thing and wakes up several times a week yelling or crying about something.

Had x-rays today -- I'll post an update shortly.

Thanks, it feels like you guys are next door too, which is very helpful in difficult times.
