Our little brave man

Wyatt was having a hard time kicking strep throat in July and it turned out that he had a throat abscess and had to be hospitalized. Thankfully rather than doing surgery to drain the swollen gland they treated him with IV antibiotics and steroids. We were in the hospital for four days. It was tough because he felt fine after the first day but still had to stay hooked up to an IV which limited his activity. Keeping a three year old still enough to keep the IV from coming out wasn't easy. But we got through it and he was very brave. Now he tells everyone he sees, "Hi, my name is Wyatt and I went to the hospital." Everyone from the cashier at the store to a stranger walking down the street. And he'll tell you all about it if you'll let him. He's cute!
