This weekend we've descended into they abyss of every parent's nightmare--seeing your child in a hospital bed with a life-threatening illness.
Soren has had a severe reaction to a croup virus (paraflu) and is currently in the pediatric ICU. We're praying and worrying and crying and thinking, and I just wanted to let my readers know that it will be a while before I am on a regular posting schedule. His recovery is expected to take 2-3 weeks, as his skin has many burn-like lesions on it due to the reaction and they can take a long time to heal.
Please pray for my dear Soren and keep your own children close and covered in kisses. This came on like a flash of lightning for our otherwise healthy and boisterous son.
