It's Monday

My first day back to work. It was a good day for me. I started working again. I am officially a "working mother". Not to say I wasn't before...aren't ALL mothers working? At any rate, back to the office I go. Not such a great day for Samuel. He stayed with his friend Delaney and her mommy, Miss Amy. Poor Miss Amy. Samuel cried for most of the day, wouldn't eat, refused to sleep, and from what I understand, made the other kids cry too. Is it possible Samuel will be asked to not return? Never. Delaney loves "her Samuel" too much. :)

Just an update on Samuel's health:

Last week he had a fever (see previous post). He had a chest x-ray. On Saturday evening I got a phone call that I wasn't prepared for. The technician and doctor had found something in the upper right lobe of Samuel's lung and they couldn't explain what it was. Something was there, whether a mass of tissue, fluid, or pneumonia. After worrying a little and praying a lot, we met with his pediatrician today. Doctor says his chest sounds great! And he suspects, even though he hasn't seen the x-ray, that the mass/haziness in his lung is just pneumonia. He was treated for pneumonia last week so we are already half-way through that treatment and Samuel seems to be doing OK. He still has a cough, which I am expecting him to have that for a while. Thank you Jesus! Silly as it may sound, I'll take a diagnosis of pneumonia over a "mass of tissue" any day!

I realize I've not posted new pics lately. It's not that I don't have them...We got wonderful pictures in Tennessee! Just, the camera is downstairs and the computer is upstairs and, I think you can see where I'm going with this. Maybe tomorrow.

Thanks for checking in and praying for Samuel!
