ex machina

the eric update - day 1096: the case of the mysterious infection.

after a few days of odin complaining that it hurt to go to the bathroom we suspected that he might have a bladder infection and took him to the doctor only to be told that it was highly unusual for a boy to have such a thing as were advised to come back if it got worse, which it quickly did. come to find out he did, in fact, have a raging bladder infection, which thankfully was quickly brought under control with a round of antibiotics.

he's all better now, but it's still a bit of a mystery as to how he could have contracted a bladder infection which seems to be quite a rarity in little boys. we're hoping it doesn't make a reappearance and that it was just a fluke, but it's hard not to imagine that the infection might be indicative of something else going on. for the time being we're going to take a "wait and see" approach and hope that the infection doesn't come back anytime soon.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
