Exhausted in the ER

Awww, poor Ty.  He had his first episode of severe head pain just after dinner tonight, and it was so alarming we rushed him off to urgent care (grandma came over to watch Gavin).  We gave him some heavy duty painkillers beforehand, and now he is doing just fine - no worries.  Unfortunately, though, he is running a low fever and we are being admitted for the next couple of days.  We will be here for as long as he runs a fever.  He was doing so well!  I really thought we might get through this cycle without having to stay overnight.  I am just hoping that the pain he had was an isolated incident and that he won't have to suffer from any more headaches any time soon.  It's just not fair. 

Here we are, all three of us with bloodshot eyes, waiting to get checked into our room which we are told won't be until after 1AM.  We got here at 9.  Argh!

Lou and I were just talking yesterday about how nice it is to have our family back.  We had Gavin home with us for such a nice long stretch, it's sad to think that we are back in the hospital overnight again.  Hopefully this will be a short-lived stay, and Gavin won't even notice we're gone.  Here's a recent picture of the little guy who is, by the way, getting HUGE!
