He was very playful today and still in a good mood. He is taking his steroids and antibiotics by mouth like a champ! And he was actually good during his breathing treatment and flirting with the respiratory therapist.
I, however, am continuing to get sicker...so Nana (my mom) is on her way to help out so that Grammy can have a break. Grammy is then going to come back on Friday when Nana leaves to continue to help us out while daddy goes out of town. Thank goodness for grandmas!

We pray that we might be released tomorrow, but I am not getting my hopes up and am realistically thinking that Sunday will be the day.
He was so happy today kicking and laughing at his baby einstein videos and crazy daddy. I took a few short videos that I will have to upload when we get home.
My cold has gotten worse so thank goodness for daddy and grammy that come to save mommy in the mornings so she can go home and rest!

Our friend, Holly, brought us a Thanksgiving feast to the hospital today! It was so good...and the Whitakers made us Thanksgiving stuff that we can freeze and eat when we get home, because heaven knows that we will be exhausted once this is all over with...
Caden and I said his prayers before he went to sleep tonight and we said all that we were thankful for. We are thankful for our friends and family, (especially for Grammy who is now relieving mommy every morning so she can go home and get some rest), how fortunate we are to have the things we do, and for Caden only having RSV and not some life threatening illness.

We had a rough night last night as his oxygen levels were down, so they kept coming in to wake us both up! Thankfully though, Daddy and Grammy came this morning and I went home to take a nap!
We also located a rocking chair that has been an absolute godsend along with the baby einstein videos.
That's all for now and special thanks to our friends that have sent flowers, bears, and balloons, they help decorate our room since we are confined (we are still on contact isolation). And another special thanks to Cindy who brought my TCBY today and came by to visit since she will not be around any young children.
Will give another update tomorrow, but pray for us that we have a better night!

Scott and his mom, Debbie have been here with us. They are going to come in the morning and I am going to go home and get some rest, because of course I am sick as well, so Caden and I are miserable together.
I will try to post an update tomorrow...Thanks to everyone for keeping us in their thoughts and prayers!
Caden and I had a pretty good night last night. He didn't go to sleep until 10, which he usually goes to bed around 8:30, but he slept until 6 AM. That's pretty good for a sick little guy. Mommy wouldn't let any of the techs mess with him and wake him up to take his temp and blood pressure.
We asked Dr. Martin about how long he thought we would be here and he said to keep our fingers crossed for Friday! So, we might be spending thanksgiving at Tallahassee Memorial...so anyone who wants to drop off their thanksgiving leftovers for us, we would appreciate it :)
I can't get pictures uploaded from the hospital, but here is a mental picture...he is in a little hospital gown with tigers all over it that says "tired little tiger", he has oxygen taped to his cheeks and in his nose, has an IV port in one of his arms that has a little splint on it so he can't bend it...poor baby...

Daddy did a good job while Mommy was out of down and they both survived. (I do have to share this though...the daycare provider said that he came to daycare one day in just a onesie...LOL)
I love this one because it looks like Riley and Caden are watching TV together...
And we are STILL working on the sitting up thing - we're getting better, but we are not quite there yet...
Caden has been stuffy and has had a cough this week, so he is on antibiotics, but as soon as we are done with those this weekend, we will be starting real food! So stay tuned for some pictures of our first real food adventure!
Also, the Harrell family just made a big purchase - a video camera! So, once we figure out how to load our videos, we'll get some on the blog!
Other than that, Scott and I are loving every day with Caden, he is growing so fast and keeps us entertained.

I love this one of him looking at Taylor...He was being so good while she was holding him!
