Raul is home! He was able to get a blood transfusion in the hospital, which helped him feel a bit better. He also took a couple different antibiotics, and will be continuing with one for two more weeks. His fevers have gone away, and his pain is under better control, which is reassuring! They also did an x-ray of his knee while we were there since he has been having so much pain there, but there were no signs of bone infection, which is great news! We had a much better experience this time around at the hospital, and everyone was very nice to Raul. We are only struggling with one department, but it sounds like we will have a better experience with one of their outpatient doctors. I am still working on getting all the vaseline out of his hair that got in while he was in the hospital. Even dish soap hasn't gotten it all out!

In the ER

Cuddle time

Watching TV in bed

Vaseline mowhawk!

His mood improved a bit when they got him mats so he could play on the floor

Happy to be home!


  1. Glad Raul is home and feeling better and I love the mohawk. :)

  2. Sweet, sweet boy. Some may say he is lucky to have you, but i have read many posts written by eb moms that it is the other way around.

  3. Believe it or not, baby oil will break up the Vaseline and then you can shampoo it out with dish soap or shampoo. You'd think it would only make things worse, but it's actually the only thing that helps!
