Jake's Home

I spent the night sitting in the chair from Hell besides Jake's bed at the hospital. He gashed the bridge of his nose on a rock while swimming at a state park on Saturday, and despite good first aid, he developed an infection.

Except for the blue, he kinda looks Navi-ish. Nothing was broken and the scar will be small . Missy called me from the hospital last night to say that he was in pain and fevering again after being there all day. I was so upset I got lost between work and the hospital for a few minutes. 

PS - He went back to work today (friday) and will be handsome as ever in no time

prayers to St. Anne for Jake's speedy recovery. Also, it might help to get water sample from where Jake was swimming to pinpoint bacteria causing infection - swimming places not treated with chemicals to kill e.coli and other bacteria are becoming so contaminated due to overuse...this infection could get serious really fast...

I should have identified the main character from the film "Avatar".
If you haven't seen it, treat yourself - it's a visual wonder and a great story.
