Both kids were finally in their happy places. Saturday, July 30th, Brian and I were on a 6am flight to Texas to visit friends. We were at a happy place as well. We relaxed, it was a nice 4 days. We arrived home late on Tuesday night. Back to work on Wednesday.
Then Thursday, August 4th, the adventures continued. Around 2:30pm, my cell phone rang and it was the medical director from Camp Simcha Special. Never a good thing! He began telling me that Ian was not feeling well, it started Wednesday night with a plug, needing to be bagged and a little bit of oxygen. Thursday morning, he told his counselor he was cold and needed another blanket, well that was unusual for him so Dovid (his counselor), told the nurses and they took his temperature and it was 99. The nurses listened to his lungs and he sounded course. An extra pulmonary treatment was done and still his lungs did not sound good. Plus his temperature was now up to 100.5. They decided to drawl some blood for cultures, start him on an antibiotics and get ready to transfer him out to the hospital. Well my computer was shut down within minutes. I asked a few more questions and Dr. Van (the medical director) said he would be in touch as soon as they had more information. My phone call to Brian pretty much went as follows: "they are transferring Ian to the hospital leave work and meet me at home. Call me from the car and I'll fill you in." Shortly after I got home, Dr. Van called to let me know that the hospital on New York did not have a bed and they knew we had been to DuPont before (one of the doctors at camp works at DuPont) so they were going to medivac him there.

We know we have let everyone know that going to the hospital it not in our current hospice plan, however part of going to camp means we need to reverse that and allow him to go. We reminded Ian of this so he was aware were remember he said no more hospitals. Now that we are back home we are back on with our hospice plan of no more hospitals.
Becca came home from camp today and was informed about Ian's adventures so we are okay with everyone knowing at this time. For those who knew of Ian's illness, thank you for all of your support and keeping our secret. For those of you who did not know, thank you for understand why we did not share until now.
We are all back under one roof!
Remember to treasure, dream and live!
