Dec 31- James develops fever, instructed to go to the ER by on-call MD. Fever continues, James has a chest x-ray, nasal swab, spinal tap, gets catheterized, gets an IV and is admitted to the hospital for 48 hours for observation and IV antibiotics. I stay with him the whole time. He remained his peaceful sleepy self through the whole ordeal and I watched the first season of Downton Abbey.
Jan 2nd- James discharged from hospital, we rush home, I have just enough time to pack a bag and we leave for the airport, just making it to the gate in time for the final boarding call.

Jan 7th (the night before we return home to MI)- Danny flings himself across the bath tub and bangs head on faucet... requires four stitches in head. Return home from the ER at 10pm.
