A room with a view

Most people reading this keep up with Nathan’s page and so you probably already know that he is in the hospital and Julia is at home on oxygen for pneumonia. I thought I’d add some visuals.

The picturesque scene to the left was taken with my phone out the window in Nathan’s hospital room. The onocology kids get private rooms with the view of the park. On of the perks, I guess.

I stayed with Nathan at the hospital today. Since I am breastfeeding, Lauren stayed too. She did pretty well today but I doubt tomorrow will go as well. She is currently in her crib crying refusing to go to bed.

Julia is all hooked up to the oxygen, dosed up with codeine cough syrup and in bed. I am already sick of hearing the drone of the large oxygen machine sitting in out upstairs hall.

I have no idea how long she will need the oxygen. What a pair her and Nathan will make in their room at night, Julia on oxygen, Nathan hooked up to IV antibiotics.

  1. I feel as though I should be able to come up with some funny caption for your pictures commenting that the two sick kids are smiling, and Lauren is frowning, but creativity is eluding me.Hope everybody is feeling better soon. Will Julia’s pnemonia be an issue for Nathan’s lack of immunity?
