So, it is already past 11pm here. I am exhausted but just HAD to watch Survivor. lol

So real fast, let me give you the quick version of what happened. I noticed on Thursday that Ian's Scrotum was the size of a baseball. I was in a bit of shock. He could not walk. He just cried. We were in the middle of a snow storm so I took him to my doctor where we could walk there instead of his Pediatrician which was 20 minutes away when there is no snow. My doctor looked at it, told me he needed to be admitted to the hospital immediately. We got there, they did an Ultrasound and found out he had an infection. It caused an effusion of blood in his scrotum, which pushed one of his testicals out of place. Then the infection spread into his lymph nodes. What they were most worried about, is whether his testical had been turned. If so, they only have 6 hours to operate to fix it from the time it happens. If not, that person will no longer be able to have kids.

Luckily, that was not the case, he did not need an operation. But because the infection was so bad, they had to do antibiotics through his IV. Which of course, landed him in the hospital for 5 days and 4 nights. I only left the hospital on Saturday night for one hour, because it was our Anniversary. So we went to dinner while Shantal came and watched a movie with him.

How it looks today is like night and day from what it looked like on Thursday. He was a trooper through most of it. His screaming got to be a bit annoying by Sunday afternoon. He would scream when it was time to get the antibiotics. It lasted only minutes, but it was intense. He was defiantely ready to come home and so was I.

The scariest thing is how fast it all happened. There was nothing to be seen when I got him dressed for school that morning. And then a few hours later it was the size of a baseball. It seriously looked like it could burst at any given moment.

Just so happy he is better and home. We still have a few days of antibiotics. But I am glad he is well enough to do the rest at home.

Just a few pics of Ian in the hospital. I just looked at them all, and it is amazing. No matter how much he was in pain, he always was smiling when I took pictures.

thanks everyone. He is a real cutie. And I can not believe how much he was laughing and smiling through the ordeal, except the three times in the day when he had to get more antibiotics. Then he screamed bloody murder. But it only lasted minutes and then he was back to his happy self.
