My nephew is very ill. It turns out that he has a fractured pancreas and will be at the Children's Hospital in Milwaukee for the next week or so. He is in fairly good spirits today, and all he wants to do is eat (part of the healing process includes giving his digestive system a break by not eating or drinking). The doctors are busy trying to find out how this happened. Stay tuned for more news.
Here he is at the emergency room.
His hand is splinted so the IV will stay in.
He is starting to get spunky again!
Coloring and healing is hard work.
Tomorrow they will put a direct line into his chest. They will be able to draw blood, give him nutrients, and fluids through this line. It will also free up his hands so he can color, put together puzzles and many other things 3 year olds like to do!
