 This picture doesn't have anything to do with this post, but shows Spencer a couple of days ago when he was feeling better.  He is very proud of his very soft peach fuzz hair right now and doesn't mind (even enjoys) people (especially cute young females) rubbing his head for luck.  :)

Dang it! I guess it was too much to think he could have an easy last couple weeks in the hospital. I hope he recovers quickly from whatever virus he caught. Poor kid! Extra prayers coming your way today!

Karey said...

Ugh! Hopefully he will feel better soon. Won't it be wonderful when this is all a distant memory?! Hugs and prayers to you all :)

Grandpa-Grandma said...

Poor Spence! Amen to what K and Karey said. No doubt that this too shall shortly pass and he will begin his full recovery in earnest. We love you Spencer and pray for you continually. said...

Prayers coming Spencer's way, as always. Is there anything he can eat to help with the mouth sores? Popsicles? Homemade ice cream? Chicken noodle soup?
