Admitted ...

Hunter was admitted to Children's Hospital this afternoon at 4:00. The staff is running a variety of final tests prior to the start of chemotherapy tomorrow (Monday). His hospital room is a fairly large one person suite and the unit has several areas for him to play. He even has the opportunity to ride age appropriate bikes whenever he likes. Although we're not quite sure how that is going to work since he will be hooked up to an IV most of the time.

Currently, Hunter is in his crib, which looks like a toddler jail cell, reading a book to himself while receiving an IVIG treatment. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like he will be able to fall asleep anytime soon since the nurse must take his vitals every fifteen minutes for the next hour.

  1. Hunter will be able to ride a bike, you will just have to run beside him to push the IV thing :)
    Both of you can sleep in his room or you have to take turns? How's your bed?
