Brotherly Love

This weekend Eli started coughing, he sounded pretty bad Saturday night so Mike took him in to Convient Care Sunday morning. Of course it was my weekend to work so he had to go with boys, we expected a long wait (it is "flu season") so Mike was prepared to bribe Rowan with whatever to keep him good (half kidding...)! The doctor thought he had pneumonia and wanted to do a chest x-ray, so of course they ended up being there for at least 2 hours. Eli does have pneumonia and is now on antibiotics (he really always acted fine though just his cough mixed with his other breathing "issues"). But the strange part- Rowan was good, like really good the whole time!! And when they did the chest x-ray, wich involved Eli being sort of being strapped into this thing (I wasn't there) Eli was not happy and crying, and Rowan (according to Mike) started to get up and go to him, and told the person "not to hurt my brother!" Now that made me want to cry! Of course I also wanted to cry because I wasn't there with him, and didn't hear anything for a longtime, and couldn't get mind off of him while at work..... but it's alright he's fine...
