When I dashed home yesterday morning I left a sick and discouraged boy at the hospital, but when I arrived back (to him) in the afternoon he seemed much improved. The doctor came by and his temp was down and other indicators were good. She said as soon as he could eat "real food" he could go home.
He promptly requested toast, with sugar-cinnamon :0) He ate a few other things too, slept pretty well, got unhooked from everything and came home this morning.
Tate is still a bit weak, and will be recovering for the next few days, but it's good to see the twinkle in his eyes and a smile on his face.
Many thanks for all your prayers and concern,
