you know it's a rough day when...

you wake up in the middle of the night with fever...

you have to go to the doctor - again...

the machine won't stop beeping because your oxygen level is low...

they make you stand in strange positions, perfectly still for chest x-rays...

you have to have a giant q-tip inserted in your nose for a flu test...

the lights go out at the doctor (it gets really dark in there!)...

you have to put a strange mask on your face that makes a really loud noise and somehow breath calmly...

the doctor tells you that you need to take more medicine...

you have to get blood drawn and because you've had fever and few liquids, it takes multiple pricks and lots of 'digging around' to find the vein...

But...if your name is Ben, you take it all in stride (except for the breathing treatment part...wow - that was beyond crazy, completely irrational fear, almost funny, but not).

The amazing part of all of this is that he hasn't had a seizure.  Not one.  He is so vulnerable right now, but he's holding on!  Thank you for your continued prayers for healing for him, for continued seizure control, and that Leeon and I won't get the flu!
