What? Me? Worry?
Jameson gained 2 pounds in 3 weeks! What a chubby little bunny!
Absolutely! Jameson was admitted into the hospital with meningitis! He was only 5 weeks old! We have no idea how he got meningitis and why! All we know is that he almost died if we didn't bring him in when we did. I won't go into the sordid details of his hospital stay. All I can tell you is that he needed to stay in the hospital on an IV drip for three weeks and has since made a full recovery!
Wesley and I took turns living at two hospitals, while he was being cared for by an amazing team of nurses, doctors, and specialists, and it was, by far, the hardest experience we've ever been through as a couple, and now a family. My only advice to anyone reading this is to trust your instincts ... we acted on a feeling but never in our wildest dreams did we ever think that he was capable of getting that sick! We were so protective of our boys. But it goes to show you that, despite your best efforts, shit happens! You learn to count your blessings, learn from the experience and move on.
