Under the weather

Mason has not been himself all weekend and then came down with a fever Sunday night (well actually 2 am Mon. He wouldn't go to sleep at all!) And at times through out the weekend when he was so fussy I had to give him some extra O2. Long story made short....after going to the pediatrician Monday evening and his ears and throat looked fine (we had also gone in Friday, with nothing found, and no fever yet) we headed to AF hospital for chest x-rays and an EKG. Boy are we spoiled at Primary Children's. It took us 4 x as long to get those tests run at AF! Anyways, at 10pm we got a call that he has some haziness on his left lung, possibly the beginnings of Pneumonia. So he needed to start on antibiotics right away. And what do you know, the only pharmacy still open was 30 min. away. Even our very kind Pediatrician looked through all his cupboards at home, and the nurses checked the office, for a sample to get us by until the morning. But no such luck!

He seems to feel a tiny bit better today, hopefully we caught it in time. He just does not have much of a reserve to fight this. So please say a few extra prayers for little Mason.

Also, Mason's heart buddy Teagan went in for his Glenn surgery today. We are praying all will go well

I heard the pediatricians asking about Mason this morning, and knew something was up. I am glad they figured out what is going on, but that he gets better soon!
Heart hugs,

Oh Summer.... I will keep Mason in my prayers. I hope you are able to get some sleep. That poor little guy. Thankfully he has great docs. He is such a little fighter. You are always in my thoughts and prayers.

MAson is absolutely beautiful and truly as miracle. I know how hard it is to be a heart mommy, but I also feel so very blessed that the Lord has enough faith in me to send me one of his best. My little Eden passed away on The 5th of this month after 4 months of fighting. I will forever be so proud of my Eden and I know she is watching over all her "heart buddies."

Love to Mason and your family!

Summer,
If you ever want to unload on someone who thinks it would be perfectly normal for you to COMPLETELY lose it, call me! I'm your gal! Your faith and attitude astounds me. I fall apart without sleep, let alone with the tremendous stress and strain you face each day. I pray the Lord will continue to hold you up...

It's so great to get these updates on your blog! Thanks for letting us check in and remember Mason in our prayers. He is so darling! We saw your other cute kids this weekend picking up some surfboards from my Dad. They were having a blast! Hopefully you got a little rest with part of the crew gone for the week. :) We love you guys! - Stephanie, Ryan and kids...
