Antibiotics, IVIG and special friends

Sam was so so happy to see his friend Khadeisha. They had so much fun playing with the I-Pad:-)

So I met with Sam's doctor first thing this morning before driving into the city for the IVIG. She said he had very purulent drainage:-( So we have started our third course of antibiotics for this crazy sinus infection that we just can't seem to get past. It is crazy, last winter he essentially had one continuous sinus infection, which is what led them into wanting to remove his tonsils. We then started having all the apneic episodes, and that is what has convinced them to take out the tonsils. But the ORIGIONAL problem is what may prevent us from doing this! Uggghh. A wonderful friend said to me today that this might be God's way of telling us that right now isn't the right time to do this, so I am waiting on His guidance.
We went into Children's today to have his IVIG. They now have a beautiful new unit. We had a nurse that we weren't familiar with but she was wonderful. And of course our favorite child life specialist Khadeisha was there. Sam just loves her. She is going to come visit him when he is in the ICU next week. We are so thankful for her. I am not sure who the actual donor was, but many many Apple I-Pads were donated to Children's Hospital! Sam absolutely loved playing with it. I must admit I was pretty enamored with it myself:-) He played with one almost the entire time we were there.

Psalms 27:14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
