Bubble Boy


If only I could put you in a bubble. Then maybe you wouldn't get sick. Oh wait. You do live in a bubble! You are either with Mommy, Daddy, or Grandma and you rarely see other children.  I cringe thinking of the illnesses you will pick up at school in the fall.
After an awkward morning, Grandma knew something wasn't right. The past three nights you would get fussy at least once and one time you asked for water. Ms. Diane took your temperature and it was 99.3 and by the time we left, it was 101.4. She took one look into your mouth and said it was swollen, red, and your tonsils were huge. Tonsillitis with a treatment of a 3 hour rotation of Tylenol and Advil (children's now because you weighed just a tad over 24 lbs.) and Omniceft (the dreaded diarrhea and diaper rash antibiotic) for 10 days. Last night you slept worse than you have ever slept. You just can't catch a break!
The other day you started using 2 and 3 word phrases and each day you add new words to your vocabulary. It is quite extraordinary to hear you use new words and correctly.
Wednesday was your last day of swimming lessons and you did a great job. In swimming you learned to blow bubbles, kick, jump to Grandma, and even swim a little. We are so proud of you and can't wait to work on everything over the summer. 
Still up for playing outside with Mommy!

you love blowing these
for you Mommy

Love you Buddy. Feel better.

  1. Dear Mason's mom,
    I just watched your family's story on CBS and could not help but follow you to this page. You guys are so amazingly brave and you have the most beautiful, perfect family. I'm half-way pregnant with my first baby and i cannot imagine the struggles you are going through each day to give your precious boys the best of everything. But i believe there is a God and He is watching your efforts to preserve one of His beautiful creations. My prayers are with u and your family that little Mason returns to complete health asap. God bless you. - Maureen, UK
