Ethan and I in the Lethbridge Hospital waiting to be airlifted to Calgary Children's Hospital.
When we arrived in calgary emergency, trauma unit, this was how Ethan looked. A little more swollen than when we had last seen him in Lethbridge.
Ethan is much more swollen and looks pretty rough but was actually doing much better. He sure loves the nurse, and she calmed him right down by singing to him his ABC's.
Grandpa Bart and Uncle Steve came to visit. Tim's parents Bart and Sue came and helped out so much. We were so greatful to have them with us those first 2 days. Steve was very proactive in trying to give Ethan the very best care. I will explain more about that later.
Tim, Ethan and I. He loves to be snuggled by Tim or myself and it will usually settle him right down. The only problem is that he weighs a ton due to all the added fluid in his body and so we have to take shifts holding him. Sleep is hard to come by these past few days and so we try and sleep by taking turns, one of us always by Ethan's bedside.


  1. We will be praying for Ethan's recovery and strength for you to endure. We look forward to hearing about his recovery and pray it will be as smooth as possible for him.

  2. Aren't we so lucky to live in a day and age where advanced medical care is available for these types of situations?
    We're praying for you and your little family!!
    Good Luck Ethan!!

  3. We are certainly thinking of you. Isnt it great to have the amazing family support that you have. He is adorable and really sounds like a little trouper. We will pray that he wont need skin grafts. Carol*Remington
