Visit to the ER

The other night I was just getting ready to head to bed and Curtis tells me I better get dressed because he has blood in his urine and need to go to the ER.  It is 1030 at night.  What the heck-I am supposed to work at 6am.  We head into the ER to eventually find out he has a UTI, which I already told him that was what was wrong.  They start an IV and  give him a litre of fluids, take oodles of blood and make him pee in a cup.  After a couple of hours they let us go home after starting him on antibiotics.  So needless to say I didn't make it to work in the morning, as it was after 1am when I hit the hay. 
Things are slowly improving, although he spent all day yesterday in bed.  He didn't even get up to say hello to Kirsten and crew.  They were over trimming an unruly willow tree from the neighbors that likes to encroach on my yard.  They cleaned out the gutters.  And they helped move furniture back into the living room.  Although Nic went to spend a few quality moments with papa.  And eat some Cheerios with him.  He has had a quiet day at home today, while I worked away.  I am going back to work for a while in the morning, as they needed to juggle some peoples shifts around. 
So, I am headed to bed, as I haven't slept real well for 2 nights.  Will leave you with a little layout of Mr. C.
