I got back from the ER at around 11 PM with Griffin. He had a slight fever this afternoon. It spiked to over 103 degrees only a couple of hours later. The diagnosis was pediatric pneumonia. A fever and a very slight cough. No other symptoms.

There was something else that the doctor noticed about his chest x-ray. Something “odd,” or maybe he used the word “unusual.” I can’t remember because when he walked in that room and introduced himself, my head started spinning. I can’t even get into it right now. It’s almost 1 AM and I just know that I’m not going to sleep tonight. Right now Griffin is asleep, although I am checking on him constantly. He’s on a really high dose of antibiotics, and we need to follow-up with his doctor tomorrow morning.

I want it to be morning. Things always seem so much better in the daylight…
