Prayers

It's 4:30 A.M., and I'm getting ready to go back into the city.

Big Kid had a cold earlier this week, I bought him some cold medicine, and he said he was feeling better.

His girlfriend found him unresponsive when she came home from work the night before last.

He's in septic shock and respitory failure due to complications from H1N1. He has pneumonia in both lungs and is on a ventilator.

The only places he's been in the last two weeks is our house, the grocery store, and out to dinner one night. The doctor said there are 10 young people in his unit with the same thing. It's extremely virilent.

We thought it was just a freaking cold, dammit!

If your child has a cold, or flu-like symptoms, take him or her to the doctor right away. And again, and again, if you have to.

Please send prayers and healing thoughts to our boy.

I'm glad he has a girlfriend who found him in time. Another point for her. I'm so sorry for him and you + family and friends for all the worry you will go through. I hope he get's better soon and bounces back better than ever.

Praying for a speedy recovery for your son! I'm so sorry to hear he's got this crap - they've closed a number of schools in my town and we're holding our breath right now with our daughter.
