Poor Guy, hernia surgery on Tuesday,
back in the hospital by Saturday.
He spent 3 days and 2 nights in the hospital with high fevers.
The weekend was filled with gorgeous weather and a holiday on Monday to boot.
But, we enjoyed it only from the miserable "isolation room" at Leuven hospital.

Take note.
Once Arleigh's fever had dropped off a bit, he shook his lethargy, and played in his crib.
His most favorite toy
was not one that Matt brought from home,
but the bottle opener hooked to a meal cart next to his crib.
Matt found it amusing that beer and wine were on the cafeteria menu.
Interestingly, for mothers who have just given birth, and want to nurse,
they offer beer to stimulate lactation.
Arleigh though, stuck to his rice cereal and milk.
Beer?... maybe another time.

Upon discharge, the meal was served with a tasty little Belgian chocolate.
To be discharged from the hospital, have a baby who was on the mend, and be served chocolate?
It couldn't have been a better day!

He's back to normal already!

Oh my gosh, that little guy, Arleigh LOOKS so much like Bo-Bella when she was that tiny!
