We thought we still had a little while before winter and the sick season begun, but we were wrong. Landen went to the ER on Tuesday afternoon for respiratory distress and fevers. We knew he had ear infections in both ears, but he was labored in his breathing, so I took him in. He was admitted that night. Last night, Wednesday, we found out what had been causing the continuous fevers and the labored breathing. He tested positive for EBV or basically mono. They are starting an IV med to help him fight the infection and lowering his immuno suppressing medicines as much as possible. He is hanging in there, but he is ready to leave this room. He just cries and points to the door. Luckly, in a way, that he is very tired, so most of the day is spent sleeping.
