school nurse, Adriana drops by for a visit
(she delivered the cards & posters from school)

****FRIDAY, Jan 29th WAS CHAOS DAY*******
there was a fire in the bathroom a few doors down the hall from our hospital room and we got evacuated around 7AM
Josh went for an identical scan to the one a day before
about Noon (I was still in my PJs for it because my clothes were left in our room when we evacuated)
We spent the majority of the day in a room in the ER
(no private bathroom there so made it difficult for us to go when we needed to - especially for Josh on a ventilator and attached to an oxygen tank when he left his bed)

We got back to our room about 4PM
Not much else happened other than getting settled back
and resting up from the craziness
Saturday, Jan 30th 2:19PM
Steffany & Bryan brought baby Logan by the hospital so I could see him.
I told them to keep him in the truck and I'd come down (don't want to check getting him sick) This was the day we learned officially Josh had swine/H1N1 flu
Saturday, Jan 30th 5:07PM
Josh waited all day to go get this chest XRay done
the technician let me take a picture of the xray on her computer screen
(the bottoms of both lungs look white to me - which would be bad - but Dr. Morse - a lung doctor - says they look much better than his from earlier in the week. She was very happy with this xray)

Sunday, Jan 31st 11:47AM
Josh on his pacers & not the ventilator or oxygen
for the first time since we've been in the hospital
(lasted about an hour then he started getting too tired & he started de-satting again)
Sunday, Jan 31st 4:38PM
Josh eating an early dinner after getting all cleaned up
I think he's starting to feel much better
Sunday, Jan 31st 5:02PM
Josh getting another IPV breathing treatment
the machine that gives it is there just behind his head
Sunday, Jan 31st
James forwarded me this picture Steff emailed to him
this late afternoon of Logan... she thinks he looks like a "little gangsta" because of the way his clothes fit him and because he had his hands up to his face.... I say he's a little angel :)
