"You got wires, going in
You got wires, coming out of your skin
You got tears, making tracks
I got tears, that are scared of the facts"
I spent a chunk of the day in the hospital. Em was diagnosed with throat infection and suffered severe dehydration. She had to receive plenty of fluids and anti-vomiting medication through an IV, to keep the food down. At every turn, I had to fight myself, fight the lump in my throat, and just keep going. Short of being in the hospital during the birth, this is without doubt the hardest moment in parenting I've ever faced. It's just so basic - I want Em to be well and getting her there is mostly out of my power because I'm not a doctor or a nurse and as it turns out Grey's Anatomy viewing doesn't prepare you for a hospital gig.
I'll keep you in the loop. In the mean time, I think I'll get sleepin' and look at pictures of my daughter. Thank you again for all the comments, kind words and positive vibes. #sicktoddler #illbaby #getwellsoon #tubes #wires #arrivalthemivie
